ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Don’t feel guilty about grabbing your coffee on the way out the door this morning. New research shows people who drink moderate amounts lower their risk of death from cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and neurological diseases.
Moderate means less than five cups a day. The American Heart Association study found it didn’t matter if the coffee was caffeinated or decaf.
Researchers say the health benefit is not just the caffeine but also something in the coffee beans themselves.
