The old question "is bad coffee for you?" Researchers are in greater agreement than ever that the answer is a resounding "no." A new study published in the journal Nature Medicine published, found that older people with low levels of inflammation - which leads to many, if not most, major diseases - surprisingly had in common: they were all caffeine drinkers.
"The more caffeine people consumed, the more protected the chronic state of inflammation was," says study author David Furman, a consultant at the Institute of Immunization, Transplantation and Infection Stanford University. "It was not the limit, apparently."
In the study, Furman and his colleagues analyzed blood samples from 100 young and old. Older people tend to in which the inflammation associated with the younger group's comparison gene have more Several context of activity - not surprising, as people age, tends to increase inflammation throughout the body. Chronic diseases of aging, such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, joint diseases and Alzheimer's are believed to all inflammation together. "Most diseases of aging are not really diseases of aging alone, but inflammatory diseases," Furman says. The more active these genes were, the more likely the person was to have high blood pressure and atherosclerosis.
In addition to the SAME, EVEN Among the Elderly OS, as PEOPLE WITH LOWER LEVELS OF THOSE FACTORS WERE PROTECTED CORN AGAINST AN INFLAMMATION - AND HAD ANOTHER THING IN COMMON ALSO. All regularly drink caffeine. Person Drinking More than five cups of coffee per day showed extremely low levels of non-inflammatory activity via gene. Caffeine inhibits this circuit and converts an inflammatory pathway to forums, researchers say.
The goal is not to make all the vestiges since inflammation disappears, scientists stress. In Truth, Inflammation And An Important Function Of The Immune System, That One Uses To Fight Infections And Elimination Of Potentially Toxic Compounds. But, with Aging, the process is NOT regulated and in a younger body. "It is evident that the E somewhat broken aging, and become less effective in managing this inflammation," says Mark Davis, Director of the Stanford Institute. "But now in this Document, we have identified a particular pathway NOT associated with Inflammation before. We are able to point out, with a much higher Image Resolution, Aging and how Things That DO NOT Be Poisoned by Inflammation."
A key to discover in October, when the inflammatory RESPONSE starts a spiral out of Control. In for Further Study, and Other Furman SOON IS GOING TO STUDY THE IMMUNE SYSTEM 1,000 PEOPLE; She hopes to use the information to develop reference values ??for the components of the immune system to tell people if their levels are normal, or if they are at a higher risk for developing chronic diseases that are driven by inflammation.
While THAT, following the example of adults who drink caffeine with lower levels of inflammation - by having a cup of coffee OR two - that could be a good idea.
