I Love my Beans

Statistics shows that coffee is considered as the most popular beverage worldwide with over 400 billion cups consumed each year. There are many articles that we could attain through the Internet these days. There has beem many pros and cons about the consumption of coffee and its effect on our health. I’ve gathered here some of the articles around the Internet that promotes the benefits of coffee to our health.

Coffee can clear the cobwebs from your head. In a recent Swedish study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine, researchers determined that insulin sensitivity improves in direct correlation with coffee consumption. For each cup you drink daily, you decrease your risk of insulin resistance 16 percent. A separate study found that men who drank regular coffee daily significantly reduced their risk of type 2 diabetes.

A cup of jave —both caffeinated and decaf—contains a host of antioxidants, including chlorogenic acid, which prevents the oxidation of bad cholesterol. (Learn Which Is Best: Coffee or Tea?)
How to drink it: Espresso, Americano—order whatever you like. Just take it easy on the sugar and whip.

Trying to kick the coffee habit? If you want to live longer, you might want to rethink giving up your three daily cappuccinos. A new study found that drinking coffee could lower your risk of death.
Researchers from the National Institutes of Health gathered information from 229,119 men and 173,141 women who were part of the AARP Diet and Health Study, making this the largest study of coffee.
After 13 years, men who drank two to three cups of coffee a day had a 10 percent lower chance of dying, compared to men who didn’t drink coffee. Women who drank the same amount had a 13 percent decreased risk.
Coffee drinkers also had a lower risk of dying from specific diseases, such as respiratory disease, heart disease, diabetes, as well as injuries and accidents. The risk of dying from cancer, however, was not lower for women who drank coffee, and was slightly higher for male coffee drinkers.
The current study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, tried to overcome some of the shortcomings of the previous research. This included taking into account the fact that many coffee drinkers also smoke tobacco, which tends to increase the risk of death.
While this is the largest study to examine the benefits of coffee, more research is needed to determine whether coffee can directly help people live longer.
The beneficial results seen in the study, however, were true for both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee. This makes that afternoon trip to the coffee shop a little more enjoyable.

How would it help for Essential Thrombocythemia patient? So far, I am unable to locate any official article about benefits of Coffee to ET patients. But, I always agree with the saying that take all good things in moderate.

    Coming from a long line of long lived coffee drinkers with a variety of medical conditions I’d like to believe in coffees health benefits. Not sure what it means to my ET though since there seems no linkage between me consuming copious amounts of coffee and developing ET. One can hope, though.

      I read somewhere in the research I am doing about natural ways to work with et that there is something in coffee which could help lower platelets and its in both decaf and in caffeinated. So it’s not apparently about the caffeine but some other part of coffee. I will try and find that resource and post it. Today is 9/19/2017.

      I am in my 90s. I seem to tolerate hydroxyurea fairly well. My Dr. juggles my dosage from 1 7 days a week to 1 6 days a week depending on my results. Currently, I’m trying alllicin twice a day but that doesn’t seem to help. I want to try 1 glass of red wine at bedtime. Looking for any homeopathic ideas too , I’m going to try the morninga tea.
