Experts: Coffee is good for older people to prevent cancer, dementia and Parkinson's disease

According to the chief geriatrician of the Moscow Department of Health, Nadezhda Runikhina, it is beneficial for older people to drink coffee. Including coffee in your diet helps prevent cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.

Coffee improves cognitive function. The caffeine it contains prevents the development of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Also, some studies show that this drink reduces the risk of a number of malignant tumors— the specialist noted.

Sometimes after drinking coffee a person may experience tachycardia, anxiety, tremor and dizziness. This indicates too much caffeine. You also need to remember that coffee increases blood pressure.

Coffee has several beneficial qualities for the body:

  • Invigorating effect. The drink contains caffeine, which stimulates the central nervous system. It helps you stay awake more efficiently, improves concentration and improves your mood.
  • Improves physical endurance.
  • Coffee contains many antioxidants that help protect cells from free radical damage and has anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Some studies have linked moderate coffee consumption to a reduced risk of developing diseases such as type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, some cancers and liver disease.
  • Coffee may stimulate digestion and help relieve constipation.< /li>

A study by Japanese experts reveals how drinking coffee can affect the prevention of certain types of cancer. According to them, coffee contains many bioactive substances such as antioxidants and phytochemicals. They are the ones that have anti-cancer properties.

Coffee contains antioxidants such as polyphenols, which help protect cells from free radical damage. Free radicals can cause damage to DNA and other cellular components, which can contribute to the development of cancer.

Coffee also has anti-inflammatory properties. Chronic inflammation is often associated with an increased risk of cancer.

Experts note that the mechanisms by which coffee may have anti-cancer effects are still being studied, and study results may be conflicting. It is important to remember that drinking coffee is not a guarantee of protection against cancer.
