New research shows that daily cups of coffee can reduce risk of Parkinson’s disease, liver cancer, gallstones, and type 2 diabetes.
Weak story on a weak, tiny, short-term manufacturer-funded study suggesting weight loss from a supplement containing unroasted coffee bean extract. The LA Times also covered it.
Not much different or better than its HealthDay competition on a story for which the newsworthiness is questionable.
Your morning coffee may have some unexpected perks. A new study reports it might even help you live longer. But not everybody is convinced, and already controversy is brewing.
Drinking five cups of coffee a day could help women live longer.

Better than the WebMD story on the same study because CNN discussed potential harms and had several sources. But this is one instance where the 4-star score based on our 10 criteria seems too high. When you get the basics wrong, you got the story wrong.
