Coffee may help women fight depression

It seems that coffee might be good for you after all --- again.

Every few years things move from one side to the other on if this or that might be good or bad for people, and it seems to be coffee's turn to once again possibly be good for us.

The Harvard School of Public Health has a new study out that has indicated that drinking coffee may decrease depression risk in women.

The most widely used central nervous system stimulant in the world, caffeine is found in a wide range of consumables, including coffee, tea, sodas and even chocolate. The study by the Harvard School of Public Health concluded that the risk for depression decreased with an increased intake of caffeinated coffee. They suggest further testing is required to confirm rather or not normal caffeinated coffee consumption might help in the prevention of depression.
