Brits Tout Coffee's Health Benefits
The BBC - British Broadcasting Corp. - is touting the health benefits of coffee to its audience of tea drinkers.
In a post on its "future" section, the BBC ticks the boxes on plenty of upsides to drinking coffee:
- Studies show an association between drinking coffee and a lower severity and recurrence of colon cancer.
- A reduced risk of fatal heart disease, strokes, and cancer in a study of a half-million Europeans over 16 years -- consistent with study findings in the U.S. and other countries.
- Antioxidants found in all coffees - decaf and fully caffeinated - help override some other risky behaviors such as smoking and following unhealthy diets.
The post goes on to tick through some perceptions about health risks associated with over-consuming caffeine, as well.
