It is healthy do drink a cup of coffee daily

Coffee CupIf you invite to abandon coffee and tea to go, so do not rush to give up your favorite morning habit. A series of scientific observations argued that most people one cup of coffee a day is actually really useful.
1. Coffee may reduce risk of heart attack
Actually, it reduces the risk of all cardiovascular diseases. Suffering from high blood usually give up coffee for fear that it will further aggravate their condition. Indeed, most recent studies that there is absolutely no connection between coffee and increased risk of heart attack – even contrary. U.S. researchers observed more than 27 thousand people over 15 years, consider that even 3 cups of coffee a day reduce the risk of heart problems. Another study showed that if one can speak of injury, it should refer to other beverages containing caffeine. According to most scientific opinions protective effect of coffee is probably due to the antioxidants and other components in coffee beans.
2. Coffee reduces risk of certain cancers
In another research over 80 years of the last century has raised a lot noise about studies showing the results of coffee may increase the risk of cancer of the pancreas. Point of this dispute was set in 2007 when the scientific community finally recognized (based on results from 66 studies) that the coffee itself is not a carcinogen. Rather, these are cigarettes – orbiting a normal cup of coffee. Currently, even some scientists now think the contrary – that coffee has a protective effect against certain cancers. Japanese scientists for example, aggregated data on more than 90 thousand people argue that people who regularly drink coffee to 2-3 cups a day, suffer less from cancer of the liver.

Cholesterol foodsThe Cholesterol level increases and decreases in winter in summer, suggesting the possibility of modifying any necessary treatment, say experts from the Cleveland Clinic following a study which recruited 517 men and women aged 20 to 70 years of age. Doctors say that women and patients with cholesterol levels above normal are more subject to seasonal changes. These data provide an explanation of all is to reduce cholesterol levels through diet and exercise, why cholesterol does not diminish in winter. Entirely possible reason, according to U.S. researchers for reducing cholesterol levels in the summer is to increase the volume of circulating blood, which occurred in the warm weather. Physical activity and reducing the mass of the body are capable of reducing cholesterol levels, namely in winter most people tend to increase weight, which is associated with a sedentary lifestyle. Studies show an average winter increase the level of cholesterol by 4 mg for men and with 5,4 mg for women. Seasonal fluctuations in the level of 11 mg for men and 18 mg for women have been found in patients with initially high levels of cholesterol – more than 240 mg.
