   Health perks of coffee
   Coffee tastes good — but is it good for you? More than half of Americans are java junkies, yet the average joe doesn’t know beans about the health effects of our daily brew. In fact, scientists say there’s evidence that coffee has many effects on health — some good, some bad.

   Longer life
   Moderate coffee drinking -- less than five cups per day -- has been linked to a decreased risk of death from chronic illnesses like heart disease, type 2 diabetes and neurological diseases. The study from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found protective effects in both regular and decaf coffee, suggesting that it’s not just caffeine that comes with health benefits, but possibly the naturally occurring chemical compounds in the coffee beans.

   Alzheimer's disease
   About three cups of coffee each day might stave off Alzheimer’s for older adults experiencing memory declines. A small study found coffee consumption helped slow the progression of mild cognitive impairment, a condition that often leads to Alzheimer’s.
