That's the conclusion of a 30-year study of more than 200,000 doctors and nurses, published in the American Heart Association journalCirculation. Both regular and decaf coffee had the same effects. "Bioactive compounds in coffee reduce insulin resistance and systemic inflammation," says Ming Ding, MD, the study's lead author.
