Drs. Oz and Roizen: News of coffee’s benefits just keeps coming

We sing coffee’s praises because daily consumption keeps your blood vessels flexible and lowers your stroke risk by 30 percent. It also cuts the risk of early death by 18 percent in women and 3 percent in men. Plus, 3 cups a day may help you dodge some cancers, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and Type 2 diabetes. And now a recent study has found that residents of the Greek island of Icaria, where they have the longest lifespan in the world, owe their longevity in part to the boiled Greek coffee they drink every day.
