Coffee: Emerging Health Effects and Disease Prevention
An IFT Press Book
This book features extensive and balanced coverage of the overall topic with a focus on coffee constituents and their bioavailability, pro-oxidant and antioxidant properties, health benefits and disease prevention effects of coffee, and potential negative health impacts. Many studies conducted on the possible beneficial health effects of coffee have found that coffee offers protection against prostate, bladder, pancreatic, breast, ovarian, and colon and colorectal cancers, type 2 diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. Research has even shown that coffee may have positive effects on mood and cognitive performance. Despite the evidence of coffee’s beneficial health effects, there are some negative ones that the book also covers. These include the negative health impacts of coffee on pregnancy, insulin sensitivity, dehydration, gastric irritation, anxiety, and withdrawal syndrome issues.
