This has certainly been a good decade for coffee lovers. Far from the guilty pleasure we once believed it, coffee has in recent years not only been exonerated, but it’s practically been heralded a health food. Studies have linked it to reduced risk of heart disease, certain cancers, diabetes, depression, and even Parkinson’s disease and dementia. But there’s been some discussion about whether all types of coffee are created equal when it comes to health benefits, since the active compounds may be more or less present in, say, boiled vs. brewed or caffeinated vs. decaffeinated coffees. Now, a new study suggests that coffee of any description seems to offer some level of protection against colon cancer. Whether the same is true for other types of cancer isn’t so clear just yet.
