Study shows coffee can reduce risk of multiple sclerosis

According to a new research study, drinking a lot of coffee everyday can significantly reduce the risk of multiple sclerosis (MS).

The researchers said that consuming more than 900ml, which is equal to two large cups in cafes, might reduce the risk by 30 per cent. The researchers from Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Johns Hopkins University in Maryland and the University of California, Berkeley studied two researchers on the matter.

The study in Sweden included 1,620 adults with MS and another group of 2,788 people without MS for comparison. The other study was in the United States and included 1,159 people with MS and 1,172 other healthy individuals. The researchers had asked people about their coffee consumption and since when they had been drinking coffee. They also estimated the estimated coffee intake at and before the start of MS symptoms in the group with the disease. The compared the results with the group of healthy group in both studies. They found that the risk of MS was consistently higher among people who did not drink enough coffee than those who drank a lot of coffee after talking other factors in consideration.

The researchers concluded, "Lower odds of MS with increasing consumption of coffee were observed, regardless of whether coffee consumption at disease onset or five or 10 years prior to disease onset was considered.In accordance with studies in animal models of MS, high consumption of coffee may decrease the risk of developing MS."

The results of the research were published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.
