In this article, the author wrote that coffee contain potent antioxidants that can be beneficial to people by reducing risk of several diseases:

  • Dementia
  • Liver disease
  • Heart disease
  • Prostate cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Parkinson disease
  • Colon cancer

And also most of the coffee products available in our country are processed, particularly the 3-in-one with milk and sugars added up.. dont know if there is any more effects…
Comparing to Tea, once added milk or sugar, the antioxidants present in the tea react with the protein Casein or the carbohydrates, totally reducing the effects (from one source they said reduce to 25% and some said zero.. although some also said adding milk no effect on tea without giving any explaination)
