The real scoop on your morning cup of joe

There have been many questions concerning the effects of coffee over the years. Some claim that it can be damaging, while others assert that the beverage, when consumed in moderation, offers a host of positive side effects, including reducing your chances of developing several serious illnesses.

So what's the real scoop on your favorite morning pick-me-up?

Studies from the Harvard Medical School support the benefits of coffee. An article released in Harvard Women's Health Watch in 2004 claimed that, when used responsibly (about 1-3 cups per day), coffee has the potential to lower your risk of gallstones, colon cancer, liver damage, type 2 diabetes and Parkinson's disease. In addition, a cup of java may actually improve cognitive function and can help improve your stamina in physical activities.

Glamour Magazine recently reported on another study from Rutger's University that showed the caffeine found in coffee had the ability to prevent the formation of certain skin cancers by blocking protein enzymes that lead to cell mutation in the skin.

Some individuals may find that coffee and other caffeine products leave them feeling jittery and nervous. The truth is that each person will be affected differently. If you love your coffee, you don't have to feel guilty about it. There are plenty of reasons to indulge in that morning brew.
