Drinking Coffee Lower Risk of Multiple Sclerosis

The good news for you coffee lovers. Based on recent studies, people who drank coffee less exposed to the risk of multiple sclerosis (MS) than those who did not drink coffee. Researchers found that people who drank coffee pretty much almost one-third less likely to develop multiple sclerosis.

"We observed a significant association between high consumption of coffee and a reduced risk of developing MS," said the researchers led by Anna Hedstrom of environmental medicine at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

In a study published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry, researchers take control of 2,779 people with MS and 3960 people without MS.

The researchers found, men who reported the highest coffee consumption, ie more than 4 cups per day had a 29 percent lower risk affected by MS than those who did not drink coffee. However, this research has not see the causal relationship between drinking coffee with MS. Further research is needed to determine whether coffee is beneficial to reduce the risk of MS.

Researchers suspect that caffeine has a protective effect on the brain and spinal cord. As is known, MS is an autoimmune disease that attacks the central nervous system. The immune system attacks the nerve fibers, called myelin which serve to send signals to the brain.

If myelinM.s damaged, the brain would be difficult to communicate with the body. MS symptoms include muscle weakness, poor coordination, and blurred vision. MS symptoms often do not realize that the patient late disiagnosis. MS disease is fairly rare because the case is rare.
