The beginning of the morning is the first big daily task for me. Without a decent caffeine component – a double espresso with milk that I feed my body at bedtime – I'm fine with nothing. The fact that in the past, I heard again that coffee is unhealthy, for example, because it dehydrates the body, does not stop me. Moreover, lately, I read more and more about studies proving the exact opposite. For example, last year, a large-scale study of over half a million participants in ten European countries made headlines, concluding that those who drink coffee live longer. Since coffee obviously reduces the various health hazards.
One of these headlines was "Coffee Reduces Colorectal Cancer Risk". The German Health Portal (DGP) added this name to a study conducted in the province of Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Researchers from Jordan and Saudi Arabia compared the eating habits of colorectal cancer patients to healthy individuals. Researchers found that "some foods have a protective effect on colorectal cancer," the summary says: "Dairy products (1-5 portions per day), legumes (3 to 5 portions per day), leafy vegetables (1 to 5 portions per day), ovaries oil (1-5 portions per day), black tea (at least 3 cups a day) and coffee (at least 1 cup a day) can cause colon cancer. "
Playing with coffee?
In the same DGP bulletin with the Colorectal Cancer Survey, I found a summary of the research done by scientists from the Queensland University in Australia, who said that drinking coffee makes it sporty. Tina Skinner, Faculty of Health and Behavioral Sciences, School of Jury and School of Life Sciences, Keynesland, found that women who drink one or two coffee or teaspoons daily feels less tired and more energetic. The study is based on long-term research data, in which more than 7,500 women participated. For coffee drinks, the likelihood of reaching recommended gymnastics is 17 percent, and tea drinkers are 13 to 26 percent higher than women who abstain from this stimulant. Tina Skinner also mentions that caffeine is also associated with a decrease in type 2 diabetes, dementia and various cancers.
Such news, of course, makes me happy as a coffee drink. In addition to the health promotion effect: the taste of freshly prepared coffee is incredibly good. Just the assertion that drinking coffee makes a sporty activity, I can not confirm from my experience. But what's not, it can still be.
