Caffeinated Women May Be Fighting Depression With Every Cup

Interesting article about the positive effects of coffee in fighting depression…

Personally, I’m a tea person. I gave up coffee- except for seasonal Starbuck’s Egg Nog Lattes- about three years ago.  I’m convinced tea has the same benefits of caffeine,  but so many more additional benefits. And I don’t have to add the calories of Half and Half to drink it!

Anyway….from NPR:

For many of us, coffee is the first thought of the day. Just thinking about it gives us the buzz, the energy and the power to ask ourselves the next question, do I make it at home or shell out another $4 at the local Starbucks as I race to work?

Well, you may decide to do both if you’ve seen new research that suggests women who drink more than one cup a day may decrease their risk of depression.

The more coffee women drink, the greater we reduce our risk of depression, according to the study. And since one in five women are diagnosed with depression at some point in life, it may be worth contemplating that double shot of espresso.
