Five new studies support your morning coffee habit
Friday 20 May 2011
Released May 17, a new Harvard University study finds that drinking coffee, either decaf or regular, can ward off the risk of deadly prostrate cancer. Here are four more science-backed reasons you can drink your morning cuppa without the guilt.
On May 19, health news source MyHealthNewsDaily published a report on the latest research touting the health benefits of drinking java. However the US-based health center Mayo Clinic recommends no more than two to four cups a day, since more than that can cause insomnia, upset stomach, and anxiety. But if you’re already a coffee drinker, here is some good news to support your habit.
In a study published earlier this month, women who drank five or more cups of coffee a day were 57 percent less likely to develop estrogen receptor-negative breast cancer. In March, another study published in the US’s Journal of the American Heart Association found that drinking at least one cup of coffee a day could keep stroke at bay.
In January, another study in the journal Diabetes reported that four cups of java a day could cut a woman’s risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by more than 50 percent. More good news for coffee lovers? Coffee has also been shown to improve brain function in mice studies, with researchers probing the possibility of using coffee as a treatment for people with Alzheimer's disease.
