We know, for most of us, coffee is a lifesaver every morning.  A new study shows that a "cup of Joe" could be a "miracle drink."

A study just released by the Harvard School of Public Health says coffee can reduce heart failure and diabetes risks, help protect the liver, and lower the risk of Alzheimer's.

The study goes on to say that people who drink two to four cups of caffeinated coffee per day are fifty per cent less likely to commit suicide.

There was a study performed in 2011 that found women who drink coffee cut their risk of depression by fifteen per cent.  This was in comparison to women who did not drink caffeinated coffee.

Researchers say caffeine may act as a mild antidepressant by activating good hormones like serotonin and dopamine.

Interesting, such a simple pleasure could turn out to be a major health benefit.
