This could be because coffee reduces inflammation and improves insulin sensitivity. Coffee contains anti-oxidants which prevent diseases.

The findings of the study are based on 10-year health records of 35,000 women, aged from 49-83years and have been published in the latest edition of the 'Stroke' journal.
