Is Coffee Really a Health Drink, or Is the Coffee Industry Just Trying to Reinvent Itself to the Public’s Detriment

It seems coffee has become not only the preferred morning drink, and office staple, it has now become one of the best medicinal brew in the world. Is the coffee industry trying to reinvent itself and sell their product as health drink?

You may not believe it but the researches were done by highly credible scientists and the results were truly studied and found plausible.

Now take these 3 studies for example.

There was a study concerning how 3 to 4 cups of coffee a day will reduce endometrial cancer in women by 19 percent compared to those who imbibe only one cup a day. This is a research study backed up by scientific data.

“We confirmed observations from previous studies that having a high versus low intake of coffee was associated with a reduced risk of endometrial cancer, and for most other dietary factors there was no association with endometrial cancer risk,” Melissa A. Merritt, a research fellow in cancer epidemiology at Imperial College London said in a news release.

Another study suggests that coffees have diuretic effects therefore drinking more of it will help rid your body of toxins. Since water will be flushed from your body, drinking coffee will also help you lose weight.

So what else is new?  This time there’s another study that says people drinking several cups of coffee a day will have lower risk in developing multiple sclerosis. This also supported by credible research data.

The study involved 5,600 Swedish and American adults. The result showed that those who regularly drink four to six cups of coffee a day were about one third less likely to develop multiple sclerosis compared to those who doesn’t drink the beverage.

The researchers explained that they don’t claim the coffee fights multiple sclerosis.

“This doesn’t mean we should be recommending rampant coffee drinking,” said lead researcher Dr. Ellen Mowry, an assistant professor of neurology at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

“There could, for instance, be something else about coffee drinkers — such as a diet or lifestyle habit — that is the real explanation behind their lower MS risk,” Mowry explained.

“Until we are able to prove that coffee — or some component of coffee, like caffeine — is actually helpful, we can’t make any recommendations,” she cautioned.

“And that is partly because all that caffeine could have negative effects, too,” she said.
