Thirteen benefits of drinking coffee（part two）
7、caffeine can reduce the risk of Parkinson's disease
Parkinson's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease second only to Alzheimer's disease. It is caused by the death of
dopamine-producing neurons in the brain. Like Alzheimer's disease, there is no known cure, so prevention is more important. In many studies, coffee drinkers have a lower risk of Parkinson's disease, with a reduced risk of 32-60%. In this case, it is likely that the caffeine itself caused the impact, because people who drink decaffeinated beverages have not reduced the risk of Parkinson's disease.
Conclusion: Parkinson's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease. Coffee drinkers have a 60% lower risk of Parkinson's disease.
8. Coffee has a protective effect on the liver
The liver is a miraculous organ that performs hundreds of important functions in the human body. Hepatitis and fatty liver are common diseases that affect the liver. Many of these diseases can cause liver cirrhosis, and the liver is basically replaced by scar tissue in cirrhosis. You may not know that coffee can actually prevent liver cirrhosis. People who drink 4 or more cups a day reduce their risk of cirrhosis by 80%.
Conclusion: Coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of cirrhosis, which is caused by several diseases that affect the liver.
9. Coffee can fight depression and make you happier
Depression is a severe mental illness that can cause a significant decrease in the quality of life. This situation is very common. At present, about 4.1% of people in the United States meet the criteria for clinical bed depression. A 2011 Harvard University study showed that women who drink 4 or more cups of coffee a day have a 20% lower risk of depression. Another study of 208.424 people found that those who drink 4 or more cups of coffee a day People have a 53% lower rate of suicidal behavior.
Conclusion: Coffee may reduce the risk of depression and significantly reduce the risk of suicide.
10. Coffee drinkers have a lower risk of certain cancers
Cancer is the most important cause of death in the world, and its characteristic is that human cells cannot control the growth of cancer cells. Coffee is very likely to prevent two types of cancer: liver cancer and colorectal cancer. Liver cancer is one of the world's third leading causes of cancer deaths, and colorectal cancer ranks fourth. Studies have shown that coffee drinkers have a 40% lower risk of liver cancer, and a study of 489,706 people found that those who drink 45 cups of coffee a day have a 15% lower risk of colorectal cancer, because coffee contains all of the human body Required MELANOIDINS.
Conclusion: Liver cancer and rectal cancer are the third and fourth leading causes of death from cancer in the world, respectively. Coffee drinkers have a lower risk of these two cancers.
11. Coffee does not cause heart disease and may reduce the risk of stroke
It is often said that caffeine will increase blood pressure. This is a fact, but the effect is minimal (3-4 mm/Hg). If you drink coffee regularly, this effect will usually disappear. However, this effect of raising blood pressure may persist in some people, so please keep this in mind if you are a hypertensive patient. But that being said, all these studies do not support the claim that "drinking coffee will increase the risk of heart disease." In fact, some evidence suggests that coffee-drinking women help reduce the risk of heart disease, and some studies also show that coffee-drinking people also have a 20% reduction in the risk of stroke.
Conclusion: Coffee may cause a slight increase in blood pressure, and this effect usually decreases over time. People who drink coffee do not have an increased risk of heart disease, but the risk of stroke is slightly reduced.
12、 coffee can help you extend your life
Since drinking coffee can reduce the risk of illness, it makes sense that drinking coffee can extend your life. In fact, some investigative studies have shown that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of death. Two very large studies conducted among diabetic patients aged 18-24 years showed that the mortality rate of men drinking coffee was reduced by 20%, and the mortality rate of women was reduced by 26%. This effect is particularly evident in patients with type 1I diabetes. In 20 years of studies, it has been shown that the mortality rate of diabetic patients who drink coffee has been reduced by 30%.
Conclusion: Several studies have shown that coffee drinkers live longer and have a lower risk of premature death.
13、Coffee is the largest source of antioxidants in the Western diet
Because coffee contains a lot of antioxidants (such as phenolic substances such as chlorogenic acid and trigonelline), coffee may be the healthiest part of their diet for those who are used to Western dietary standards. In fact, research shows that most people get more antioxidants from coffee than fruits and vegetables combined.
Conclusion: Coffee is one of the healthiest beverages on the planet.
