Without caffeine, not only are you a little slower mentally, you're lagging physically. "Caffeine stimulates you to exercise 10 to 15 percent longer" because it keeps you from getting as tired, explains Terry Graham, Ph.D., a nutritionist who specializes in caffeine at Ontario's University of Guelph." -Women's Health

 

 

15. Coffee is good for men's health. 

"Sipping some coffee might reduce your risk of experiencing a condition that many say hurts worse than childbirth: kidney stones. In a study at Harvard, people who drank one of more servings of java a day were 26 percent less likely to develop kidney stones than those who consumed it less than once a week." -Men's Health

The French began growing coffee in the Caribbean, followed by the Spanish in Central America and the Portuguese in Brazil. European coffee houses sprang up in Italy and later France, where they reached a new level of popularity." -PBS

 

22. Coffee keeps the unemployment rate down.

 

23. Coffee cares about road safety.

"Drowsy driving is a major cause of many road accidents, so it makes sense that you might need a pick-me-up before you get behind the wheel.

Enter coffee: Researchers from the Netherlands found that people who consumed one cup of caffeinated coffee in the middle of a 4-hour-long tedious driving task swerved less, maintained their speed better, and rated their driving as more responsible than those who sipped decaf." -Men's Health
