For coffee aficionados, the cup that cheers runneth over. The latest round of good news comes from researchers at the Institute for Immunity, Transplantation and Infection at Stanford University in California who claim drinking coffee can reduce the effects of ageing by lowering the level of inflammation in the body. Inflammation is an important process used by the immune system to fight infections and remove toxins from the body. However, as one gets older, the body fails to adequately regulate inflammation, increasing the likelihood of contracting diseases like diabetes, hypertension, cancer, heart problems, joint disorders and Alzheimer’s. Researchers found that people who drink more caffeine show significantly low levels of activity in the inflammation gene pathway.
