New research suggests that coffee is good for your health, but even more new studies assert the contrary. The impression is that the studies related to coffee contradict each other.

So what is the truth of the matter?

Nutritionist Susan Mitchell says that nutritional science is relatively young, that is why so many contradictions in it arise. Also, coffee is a very complex beverage that can affect health both positively and negatively.

Experts also say that coffee is not only caffeine. After all coffee contains vitamins and minerals that are good for your health.

Why coffee is bad?

Unfiltered coffee is not a useful product. Unfiltered coffee means the Turkish coffee or prepared in French press.

So, if you drink unfiltered coffee, you need to know that it contains the substance cafestol, which increases the level of cholesterol. If you drink coffee constantly, you increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Caffeine contained in coffee can be dangerous during pregnancy.

Specialists have concerns that excessive caffeine consumption can have detrimental effects on the fetus, because the fetus is not able to metabolize caffeine well. The nutrition of the fetus may be improper.

Large amount of cream and sugar in the coffee has negative effect on health.

The coffee that you buy in a coffee shop has negative impact on your health because of its high calorie content.

Why coffee is useful?

Studies show that coffee reduces the risk of the most common diseases. Moderate coffee consumption (1-3 cups per day) is associated with reduced risk of heart attacks, especially in women.

Some studies show that drinking coffee is associated with a reduction in the development level of such diseases as prostate cancer, certain types of breast cancer and Parkinson's disease.

Coffee also reduces the risk of developing diabetes.

Coffee helps to improve the well-being and reduces the risk of depression.

Studies have shown that women who drank two or three cups of coffee a day were 15% less likely to develop depression.

So, only you can decide whether to drink coffee or to reject it.
