Coffee could lower risk of multiple diseases
Research from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan University, and Wuhan Institue of Biotechnology in China shows heavy coffee drinkers have lower risk in developing a number of diseases.
Studies have shown that people that drink four cups of coffee and day have a 50% lower risk of Type 2 diabetes.
Researchers cited the protective benefits of compounds in coffee that hinders a substance called human islet amyloid polypeptide (hiAPP), which has been linked to diabetes.
Last year, a Harvard University study found drinking coffee, either decaf or regular, can lower risk of deadly prostate cancer, and reduce the risk of developing estrogen receptor-negative breast cancer by 57%.
Coffee has also been shown to improve brain function in mice studies, making coffee a possible treatment for people with Alzheimer’s disease.
Health experts don’t recommend too much coffee, which can cause insomnia, upset stomach, and anxiety.
