Drinking Coffee is Unrelated to Chronic Illnesses

Fri, 02 Mar 2012

Coffee drinkers are no more at risk of developing conditions like heart disease or cancer, and are less susceptible to developing type 2 . This is according to German research of more than 40,000 people over the last decade.

These German findings, published in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition, come after several studies which have produced conflicting results, with some relating coffee drinking to an increase in cancer, heart disease, stroke and more.

The results intimate that coffee consumption is not harmful for healthy adults with relation to the risk of developing major chronic diseases.

When the study began, the researchers amassed information as to the participants' coffee drinking habits, diet and exercise and health information for 42,000 German adults with no chronic conditions.

The team monitored the participants for the next nine years to check whether or not they had developed any health problems, specifically strokes, cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, diabetes and cancer .

They discovered that coffee drinkers and non-drinkers were just as likely to develop one of these illnesses.

When it came to type 2 diabetes, researchers uncovered that coffee drinkers were less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than non coffee drinkers.

Of those who drank four cups daily, 3.2 percent went on to report they had type 2 diabetes, in contrast to 3.6 percent of those who drank no coffee.
