Coffee Reduces Depression Risk Among Women, Study Says
Innovation

A new study provides yet another perspective on the long-term benefits of coffee to the female population.

A woman’s daily dose of coffee may do more than just keep her perky and awake; a couple of cups may even steer her away from depression.

According to a study of 50,000 female respondents that was recently published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, women who drank two or more cups of coffee every day were less likely to be diagnosed with depression over a 10-year span compared to other women who did not drink as much coffee. Women who drank two to three cups of coffee were 15 percent less likely to be treated for depression, while those who drank four or more had a 20 percent lower risk.

While restricted to an observational study that may not produce any causality, it can be inferred from the study that women who are more sensitive to coffee and therefore drink less of it and are exposed to its stimulants less could be more likely to experience bouts of depression.
