Coffee consumption could help protect against MS

Coffee consumption could help protect against MSMarch 6 2015. A presentation scheduled for the American Academy of Neurology’s 67th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, April 18 to 25, 2015 will reveal a protective effect for coffee drinking against the risk of developing multiple sclerosis (MS), a progressive disease of the nervous system.

Ellen Mowry, MD, MCR, and colleagues evaluated data from two case-control studies, conducted in Sweden and the United States. The Swedish study compared 1,629 individuals with MS to 2,807 subjects without the disease, and the American study included 584 MS patients and 581 controls. The amount of coffee consumed one, five or ten years before diagnosis was ascertained among those with the disease, and was compared to the intake of those without MS during a similar time period.

The researchers observed a 33% lower risk of MS among subjects who consumed at least six cups coffee per day the year before diagnosis in comparison with those who did not consume coffee at the same point in time. In the U.S. study, drinking four cups or more per day was associated with a similar benefit. High intake of coffee five or ten years prior to diagnosis was also associated with significant protection.
