A cup of coffee keeps the doctor away!
Coffee is an everyday drink for practically everybody in the world. 9 out of 10 people drink coffee in the morning to jump start their day. Drinking coffee makes it easier to NOT sleep on the job, doesn’t it? However, recent studies show that too much coffee could be bad for our bodies. But a new study begs to differ! Coffee is apparently one factor that could curb the aging process.
As people get older, inflammation throughout the body tends to rise. Chronic diseases of aging, like diabetes, hypertension, heart problems, cancer, joint disorders and Alzheimer’s, are all believed to have inflammation in common.
A new study published in the journal Nature Medicine found that older people with low levels of inflammation—which drives many, if not most, major diseases—had something surprising in common: they were all caffeine drinkers.
“The more caffeine people consumed, the more protected they were against a chronic state of inflammation,” says study author David Furman, consulting associate professor at the Institute for Immunity, Transplantation and Infection at Stanford University. “There was no boundary, apparently.”
