Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health have determined that regular coffee drinking protects against depression in females:

Academics behind the venture discovered that women who have two to three cups of caffeinated java a day were 15 percent less likely to get depression over a ten-year span than those who nursed one or fewer cups each week. … One of the biggest women’s health studies in the country, the research sampled 50,000 participants for a decade and corresponds with earlier research that coffee consumption may lower suicide risk…[C]offee also reduces the possibility of developing Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease later in life.
