M Lahiri et al, 2011. Modifiable risk factors for RA: prevention better than cure? Rheumatology, published online ahead of print.

Objective. To perform a meta-synthesis of the evidence for modifiable lifestyle risk factors for inflammatory polyarthritis (IP) and RA. Methods. We performed a MEDLINE literature search. Case-control and cohort studies and systematic reviews published from 1948 through February 2011 and studying modifiable risk factors for RA were retrieved. The main outcome measure was diagnosis of […]

Y Je et al, 2011. A Prospective Study of Coffee Consumption and Risk of Endometrial Cancer over a 26-year Follow-up, Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention, Online First

Background: Coffee has been reported to lower levels of estrogen and insulin, two hormones implicated in endometrial carcinogenesis, but prospective data on the relation between coffee consumption and risk of endometrial cancer are limited. Methods: We prospectively assessed coffee consumption in relation to endometrial cancer risk in the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS) with 67,470 female […]

A L Klatsky et al, 2011. Coffee, caffeine, and risk of hospitalization for arrhythmias. The Permanente Journal, Volume 15

Context: Population study data about relations of coffee drinking to arrhythmia are sparse. Objective: To study relations of coffee drinking to risk of cardiac arrhythmia in 130,054 persons with previous data about coffee habits. Design and Outcome Measure: We used Cox proportional hazards models with 8 covariates to study coffee-related risk in 3137 persons hospitalized […]

A Birerdinc et al, 2011. Caffeine is protective in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Aliment Pharmacol Ther.

Background: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), the hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome, is the most common cause of primary liver disease. Although recent studies have found that coffee drinking is protective against end stage chronic liver disease, there are scarce caffeine intake data in NAFLD specifically. Aim: To investigate the effects of dietary behaviour in […]

Y Zhao et al, 2011. Antihypertensive effects and mechanisms of chlorogenic acids, Hypertension Research, published online ahead of print.

Chlorogenic acids (CGAs) are potent antioxidants found in certain foods and drinks, most notably in coffee. In recent years, basic and clinical investigations have implied that the consumption of chlorogenic acid can have an anti-hypertension effect. Mechanistically, the metabolites of CGAs attenuate oxidative stress (reactive oxygen species), which leads to the benefit of blood-pressure reduction […]
