Another Reason to Drink Coffee: It Can Reduce Your Risk of Multiple Sclerosis

That's right, a new medical study has shown that coffee might help reduce the risk of developing Multiple Sclerosis, or MS. It will be presented at the 67th Annual Meeting for the American Academy of Neurology in D.C. What is Multiple Sclerosis? 

An estimated 2.3 million people around the world have Multiple Sclerosis, a chronic disease that affects the Central Nervous System (which includes the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves). It is said that MS is auto-immune, which means that the immune system induced inflammation in the protective coating of the nerve fibers, which are called myelin. 

In the past, we've heard about coffee helping reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's, skin cancer, and other forms of cancer as well.  

A doctor from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Dr. Ellen Mowry, and her colleagues studied data from two different population-based studies and analyzed the connection between coffee consumption and MS. 

Their first study was from Sweden and included over 1600 people with MS and then 2800 healthy people; the second study was from the United States and has 1100+ people with MS and another 1100+ that were healthy. 

The results of the study from Sweden found that the people who did not drink coffee during the year before the onset of MS symptoms were 1.5x more likely to eventually develop MS, versus the people who consumed 6+ cups of coffee per day. 

The research also found that people who consumed coffee had a protective effect against MS during the five to ten years prior to the onset of MS symptoms. 

Don't slack on your coffee consumption, now that science is finding all these health benefits! To be sure you have enough coffee on hand, shop Coffeevines - a Chicago K-Cup coffee retailer.

Coffee Sales are Expected to Soar In Next 5 Years

Coffee is already one of the world's most popular beverages, however, there is a major swing in popularity in the works. The world's two most populated countries, China and India, are becoming bigger & bigger coffee fans. 

As China and India become bigger coffee fans, the demand for the hot beverage is expected to increase by 25 percent. As countries around the world continue to become more westernized, the consumption of coffee, including single cup coffee, continues to increase.

At this point in time, the consumption of coffee around the world is around 141.6 million bags of coffee beans; however, by the year 2020, coffee consumption is expected to be at a consumption rate of 175.8 million bags. As the popularity of K-Cup coffee continues to rise as well, we will see this rise as well (sales have tripled since 2011).

The coffee craze is timing up in a peculiar way with the tighter coffee supplies as Brazil has seen droughts affect their coffee bean output. The droughts have reduced the coffee supply by 5.7 million coffee bags in 2015 (aside from the droughts, there was a fungus that ruined many crops, as well).

Make sure to purchase your coffee soon, before it is all gone! Get ahead on the rush and buy from Coffeevines

Health Study Links Coffee Consumption & Lower Risk of Endometrial Cancer

In the US, Endometrial Cancer is the most common cancer for female reproductive organs. In fact, 1 in 37 women will get the cancer in their lifetime; however, a recent medical study found that women who drink three to four cups of coffee per day can lower their risk of endometrial cancer by 20 percent. 

Endometrial cancer often begins in the lining of the uterus (endometrium). According to the American Cancer Society, or ACS, they predict over 54k women will be diagnosed with the disease this year.

Medical researchers studies 1,303 women who suffered from endometrial cancer (the researchers were from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition Study). The researchers analyzed the links between 84 different foods and how they impacted the risk of endometrial cancer.

Once they did that, the researchers were able to narrow down to nine foods and their nutrients that impacted the risk of cancer; the nutrients studied were: total fat, non saturated fat, phosphorus, and carbs. Specific foods that were studied included coffee, yogurt, butter, potatoes, and cheese.

After this study, researchers analyzed the findings from a similar study by the Nurses' Health Study. This enabled the researchers to find that women who drank three to four cups of coffee per day lowered their risk of the cancer by almost 20 percent; this is in comparison to women who don't drink coffee.

Reduce your risk of endometrial cancer and enjoy some K-Cup coffee! Have it shipped to your door at your home or office, any time.
