In a study of thirty-five thousand women from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm that was published in Stroke it was reported that drinking one or more cups of coffee daily is associated with reduced risk of stroke. The idea is that coffee beans contain antioxidants and other disease-fighting chemicals that reduce inflammation and improve insulin activity. Moderate coffee consumption has also been linked to decreased risk for diabetes, colon cancer, heart disease, liver disease and Parkinson’s disease.
