A new study, executed by the scientists from the Stanford University School of Medicine, says that caffeine can counter an underlying inflammatory process that is the cause of heart health problems among senior people. Also, the study adds to the growing body of research showing the many health benefits of coffee consumption.
For the study, a team of scientists performed a comprehensive analysis of blood samples, data gathered in surveys, and the family history of more than 100 participants. The research suggests that ageing and chronic disease linked to a basic inflammatory mechanism.
David Furman, a lead author of the study and consulting associate professor at Stanford, says: “More than 90% of all noncommunicable diseases of ageing are associated with chronic inflammation. It’s also well-known that caffeine intake is associated with longevity. Many studies have shown this association. We’ve found a possible reason for why this may be so.”
