Side Effects Of Coffee On Health Revealed
Excecutive summary about side effect of coffee on health revealed By Kirsten Whittaker
A German study that included over 40,000 subjects and lasted almost a decade has found that the side effects of coffee produce no more risk of chronic illnesses (heart disease, cancer) plus coffee drinkers are also less likely to be diagnosed with troublesome type 2 diabetes than non coffee drinkers.
These new findings come after many earlier studies have brought conflicting reports - some suggesting coffee drinking brought a higher risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer and more.
They saw that both coffee drinkers and those who were not had the same risks of getting one of these diseases. For example, just over 10% of both coffee (over than four cups per day) and non-coffee drinkers ended up developing a chronic disease.
On the type 2 diabetes front the researchers also saw that coffee drinkers had a lesser chance of being diagnosed with this chronic illness than non-drinkers.
Among the four cup a day coffee drinkers, 3.2% later told researchers they'd been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, while 3.6% of those who did not drink coffee were diagnosed with the same disease. Even after accounting for things that could affect diabetes risk (being overweight and smoking), the team saw that who drank coffee were 23% less likely to be diagnosed with diabetes - supporting findings from earlier studies.
The researchers point out that the results of the current research suggest that drinking coffee is not harmful to a healthy adult. But they don't mean people should rely on coffee for preventing type 2 diabetes or other chronic illnesses.
The Health Benefits of Coffee
Excecutive summary about the health benefits of coffee By Rebecca G Wishford
Coffee contains active ingredients that affect the human body - the most famous one being caffeine.
Many people drink coffee because of the flavour - it tastes great and there are so many different ways to drink it. Many also drink it for the stimulating effect of the caffeine. Plenty of people also drink coffee for its ability to increase short-term memory and reactions. Coffee has also been shown to reduce the risks of getting certain diseases.
Drinking caffeinated coffee has been credited with a lowering the incidence of gallstones and gallbladder disease in both sexes. There is also a significantly reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease and Dementia for people who drink 3-5 cups a day compared to those that have 0-2 cups and a significantly reduced likelihood for men of developing Parkinson's disease later in life.
For heart disease, the drink is thought to help prevent heart attacks, stroke and arrhythmia. The tannins in coffee may also reduce the tooth decay potential of foods by reducing plaque formation.
