Coffee cuts depression risk in women

 Women who are regular coffee drinkers have a 20 percent lower risk of depression than their non-caffeinated counterparts, according to a ten-year Harvard study of 51,000 women. “We know that caffeine enters the brain and activates the release of different neurotransmitters that are related to mood, like dopamine and serotonin,” said the lead scientist on the study. While further research is needed, he said, the study suggests that “caffeine may have some beneficial effect on neuronal health." [New York Times]
