Good Luck.
There is good news for coffee [loving / lovers] . A new report claims that [regular / regularly] coffee drinkers may live longer than [those / them] who do not drink coffee. Researchers say there is [growth / growing] evidence that coffee benefits the health, makes you live [lengthier / longer] , and reduces the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, other life-threatening [illnesses / illness] , and even suicide. The study was published by the American Heart Association. It looked at the coffee-drinking [habitual / habits] of over 200,000 people who [drunk / drank] between one and five cups of coffee a day. Researcher Dr Frank Hu said: "This study provides [further / farther] evidence that moderate consumption of coffee may confer health benefits in terms of reducing premature death [due / dew] to several diseases."

Scientists have been working [hardly / hard] to analyse exactly what is in coffee that [provisions / provides] so many benefits to the health. Dozens of reports [in / on] the past few decades have [highlights / highlighted] the positive [affects / effects] it can have on the body. Dr Hu said it was still unclear precisely how elements within the coffee bean [interaction / interact] with the body. He said: "Coffee is a [complex / reflex] beverage. It's very difficult to pinpoint which [component / competent] of coffee is responsible for which benefit." Researchers did not include [highly / heighten] caffeinated drinks in the study. They also pointed out that while coffee seems to have health benefits, added ingredients, such as cream, sugar and certain types of [sweeties / sweeteners] , do not.
