“Coffee is associated with many different health benefits: Type 2 diabetes; reduced risk of heart disease; reduced risk of certain cancers; improved mood; reduced risk of depression, Parkinson’s disease; the list goes on and on,” says Dr. Hensrud.

He says that although there is a tiny bit of a substance in coffee, called “acrylamide,” that’s toxic in large amounts, the benefits of drinking coffee outweigh the risks.

“It’s the highest source of antioxidants, and, so, even decaffeinated coffee has been associated with a reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes, similar to caffeinated coffee,” says Dr. Hensrud.

He adds that pregnant women and people who have side effects, such as headache, nervousness or heart palpitations, should limit caffeine.

“Drink what you enjoy. If you’re susceptible to the effects of caffeine, decaffeinated coffee is an excellent choice,” says Dr. Hensrud. Courtesy: Mayo Clinic News Network
