You might be reading this article while enjoying a nice, hot cup of your favorite morning brew. The aromas and flavors of coffee are rich and delicious, and some folks just can’t get going without it or the boost its caffeine provides.

Like so many of our favorite foods and beverages, coffee has been the subject of conflicting health information through the decades. Back in the early 1990s, the World Health Organization even listed it as a possible carcinogen. New research by 2016 showed coffee consumption was not associated with increased cancer risk, and the picture became even murkier when other research showed coffee consumption could actually cut the risk of certain cancers.
