A recent study says that drinking 3 to 5 cups of coffee a day is "not associated with long-term health risks" among people who are healthy, and it may actually have health benefits.

The study, done by the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee and reported at msn.com, found evidence that consuming moderate amounts of coffee "is associated with decreased risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease in healthy adults, and there is  moderate evidence that coffee/caffeine intake can reduce the risk of Parkinson’s disease", according to the article.

And if you are a runner, there is some interesting news for you as well in the report. It says that caffeine keeps you hydrated and also may boost your reaction time. Experts do warn that some of the items many people add to coffee, like creamers and sugar may be the most unhealthy part of coffee.

So, you may not have to feel guilty about that second cup of coffee anymore!
