Impact of coffee on human health

Ewa Szuster, Anna Pawlikowska, Amanda Mandera, Paulina Kostrzewska



Coffee is considered as one of the most popular beverages in the world. There are many different methods of preparation which can change the taste but also it could limit the level of dipertenes which raise blood cholesterol. For many years it was thought that the impact of coffee on human health is not very positive. Surprisingly coffee consumption is associated with lower risk of the type 2 diabetes mellitus and lower cancer risk. It also decreases mortality from cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease, and stroke. Summarizing, the results of the analyzed studies show positive impact of coffee on human health. To maintain the advantages of this beverage, amount of caffeine, intake of sugar or cream should be limited.
