There have been enough studies performed that we can say that drinking 24 ounces of coffee a day decreases your risk of Parkinson’s disease by 40% and your risk of Alzheimer’s disease by about 20%. Why? Were not quiet sure, except to say that it appears that caffeine has beneficial impact on neurotransimtters.
At least six studies indicate that people who drink coffee on a regular basis are up to 80% less likely to develop Parkinson’s, with three showing the more they drink, the lower the risk. Other research shows that compared to not drinking coffee, at least two cups daily can translate to a 25% reduced risk of colon cancer, an 80% drop in liver cirrhosis risk, and nearly half the risk of gallstones.
There’s also some evidence that coffee may help manage asthma and even control attacks when medication is unavailable, stop a headache, boost mood, and even prevent cavities.
