Coffee Reduces the Risk of Multiple Sclerosis
According to the medics, coffee reduces the risk of developing multiple sclerosis. Daily drink consumption to 0.9 liters is recommended for the young people and adults, reports Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery & Psychiatry.
Scientists give the reason for their recommendation explaining that the caffeine which is contained in coffee has neuroprotective properties and can suppress the formation of chemical compounds which are involved in the inflammatory response associated with the appearance of multiple sclerosis.
It is also reported that such conclusions experts made during two studies. In the first study the inhabitants of Sweden were involved -1620 people suffering from multiple sclerosis, as well as 2788 healthy people. The second study was attended by residents of the United States - 1159 people with multiple sclerosis, and 1,172 healthy people. Scientists have estimated the number of daily coffee drink by volunteers for life. After that, they evaluated the impact of coffee consumption on the development of multiple sclerosis.
As a result, data from Sweden have shown that the risk of developing multiple sclerosis in people who drink coffee on a daily basis over the last five to ten years, is decreasing by 28-30 percent. The same conclusion was reached by experts, analyzing the data obtained in the United States. Scientists emphasize that now is not found a direct link between low risk of developing the disease and drink of coffee. However, experiments carried out on animals, confirm positive effects of beverage on the body and prevention of neurodegenerative diseases.
