In a new study, which was published in March 2020 in the journal ‘Clinical Nutrition’, the researchers are now further investigating whether the genetics of humans has an impact on how health-friendly coffee for each Individual.

“Worldwide, we drink every day around three billion cups of coffee”, explains the Professor a keen interest in this field of research. “Therefore, it only makes sense that Before – and to investigate the disadvantages of it on our health.”

Coffee increases the risk of disease

They found initially reassuring way, that moderate drinking of coffee is largely considered to be safe is to be classified.

“However, it also showed that habitual coffee consumption increased the risk for three diseases: osteoarthritis, arthropathy (a joint disease), and obesity,” explains Dr. Hypponen, the further study results.
