The favorite of many, the refreshing drink that makes most of our mornings just a little bit better, coffee has recently been the target of some ‘wellness’ advocates. On the other hand, coffee continues to surprise with new and unexpectedly beneficial properties.
Regular coffee consumption can reduce the risk of being infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus, according to a new study led by scientists at Northwestern University.
The scientists studied the habits of nearly 40,000 participants, including their dietary habits, at the UK Biobank between 2006 and 2010. The aim was to find out whether there is a link between the risk of coronavirus transmission and the consumption of coffee, tea, processed meat, red meat, fruit, vegetables and fish.
According to the results, published in the journal Nutrients, ‘people who regularly consume 1 or more cups of coffee per day have a 10 percent lower risk of COVID-19 compared to those who drink less than 1 cup of coffee per day’.
BREAKING THE VIOLENCE OF COVID-19
The scientists suggest that the results may be explained by coffee’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which may partially alleviate the syndromes associated with “the severe effects and mortality of COVID-19.”
Experts also stressed that the effect of coffee on the disease is worthy of further research.
The study also analyzed the relationship of diseases with other products. In particular, daily consumption of fresh vegetables reduces the risk of COVID-19 coronavirus infection, while products such as processed meat (such as sausage and ham) have been claimed to have the opposite effect.
It was stated that this is not related to meat, but to the products in question, rather to harmful food additives.
“While these findings require independent validation, adherence to certain dietary behaviors may be an additional tool to existing COVID-19 prevention guidelines to limit the spread of this virus,” the authors of the study said in a statement. statements were included.
