Coffee consumption and fluid balance

Coffee and Health houses current scientific information on a wide range of coffee-related topics. This blog post focuses on the topic of coffee consumption and fluid balance. Below is an overview of this topic which includes information on the effect of coffee on endurance exercise and exercise performance.

The study of the effect of coffee on fluid balance is split into two areas. These are caffeine intake during exercise and caffeine intake at rest in the general population.

According to the latest research, in normal life activities, caffeine consumption does not lead to dehydration. Studies also conclude that during exercise, moderate caffeine consumption is beneficial for endurance performance and does not contribute to dehydration.

Coffee consumption and cancer – Part two

Following on from the last post, here is some further information on the research on the topic of coffee consumption and cancer. This focuses on coffee consumption and breast, ovarian and endometrial cancers, coffee consumption and cancers at other sites and mode of coffee preparation.

Coffee consumption and breast, ovarian and endometrial cancers
Research has shown that coffee consumption is not linked to an increased risk of breast cancer, and no association between coffee consumption and the incidence of breast cancer has been found in post-menopausal women. However, in pre-menopausal women, the consumption of around 4 cups of coffee a day has been associated with a 38% lower risk of breast cancer. This effect seems to be even greater in pre-menopausal women at high risk, as a reduction in risk of 25-70% with daily consumption of 4-6 cups of coffee has been reported.

Coffee consumption and cancer – Part one

Coffee and health includes current scientific information on a wide range of coffee-related topics, including coffee consumption and cancer. The following post provides an overview of this topic – there is such a wealth of information on this topic that we have divided it into two parts.

This focuses on cancer in general, coffee consumption and cancers of the digestive tract and coffee consumption and bladder, kidney and prostate cancers.

Current scientific evidence suggests that moderate coffee drinking is not associated with an increased risk of cancer at the majority of body sites. In fact, research results suggest that coffee consumption may be linked to a reduced risk of developing cancer at a number of body sites, including the oral cavity/pharynx, liver, endometrium, brain, colon and rectum.
