COFFEE – MORE THAN PLEASURE?
NATURAL ONLINE DOCTOR’S SUNDAY BLOG
Coffee lovers seem to know why: this beverage flatters their taste buds and accordingly, enhances their quality of life….
However, as we can learn from a recent symposium at the University of Lisbon, Portugal, there may be more behind, with coffee having also a health benefit.
One of these benefits is helping with cardiovascular disease – our industrialized society’s main health problem – in fact the no. 1 chronic illness with millions of non-age related and preventable deaths and more than 100 billion dollars of related costs involved.
According to the above mentioned symposium, this dramatic death risk may be reduced by 21% with only 3-5 cups of coffee per day.
Even more: with 3-4 cups of coffee daily, the risk of diabetes – no. 3 on the premature death list – may be cut by 25%.
Finally, this coffee consumption bolstered with an appropriate lifestyle of healthy diet, physical activity and non-smoking, etc., may reduce the risk of a heart attack by no less than 79%.
However, more research is needed to validate these findings. Until then – keep sipping?
