Coffee is a beverage that is obtained from roasted seeds of the coffee or coffee plants (coffea spp). Belonging to the Rubiaceae family, coffee trees are basically evergreen shrubs. Primarily, they originate from the tropical regions of Africa, and a fewer species growing in Asia. The world consumes roughly 10 billion kilos of coffee each year. In a span of ten years, Bangladesh has been ranked 111th out of 140 countries in terms of mass coffee consumption, 20 places above her prior position. In spite of its growing popularity, the influence of coffee on human health is yet to be considered.

In contrary to early research, coffee is said to have strong evidence of various health benefits rather than any such adverse effects according to present day research. Frank Hu, chairman of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health announced on the 5th of April, 2021, “For most people, moderate coffee consumption can be incorporated into a healthy diet”. In his words, a moderate amount of daily coffee intake, about 2-5 cups is associated with lower livelihood of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, liver and endometrial cancers, Parkinson’s disease, and depression. It is even plausible that regular drinkers of coffee can minimize their chances of early death.

Furthermore, dark roasted coffee has the power to reduce the breakage of DNA strands, which occurs naturally throughout the human body, but if not repaired properly by our cells, it can cause cancer or tumors might develop. Not to mention, having two cups of this beverage a day can protect a person against Alzheimer’s disease. One out of 23 women in the world is likely to develop colon cancers at any point in their lives. But research shows drinking coffee, decaf or regular, is 26 percent less likely to develop colorectal cancer.

A study from the year 2015 appearing in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute surveyed the coffee-drinking habits of more than 447,000 people over 10 years. The researchers found that those who drank four or more cups of caffeinated coffee each day had a 20% lower risk of developing melanoma than people who drank decaffeinated coffee or no coffee.
