I Guessous et al, 2014. Associations of Ambulatory Blood Pressure with Urinary Caffeine and Caffeine Metabolite Excretions, Hypertension, published online ahead of print.

ABSTRACT Intake of caffeinated beverages might be associated with reduced cardiovascular mortality possibly via the lowering of blood pressure. We estimated the association of ambulatory blood pressure with urinary caffeine and caffeine metabolites in a population-based sample. Families were randomly selected from the general population of Swiss cities. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring was conducted using […]

S Zelber-Sagi et al, 2014. Coffee consumption and nonalcoholic fatty liver onset: a prospective study in the general population. Translational Research, published online ahead of print.

ABSTRACT Retrospective studies suggest that coffee consumption may exert beneficial effects in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver; however, prospective data supporting a protective role on liver steatosis development are lacking. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the association between coffee consumption and fatty liver onset in the general population. The analysis was performed both […]

Z Shen et al, 2014. Coffee consumption and risk of gastric cancer: an updated meta-analysis, Clinics and Research in Hepatology and Gastroenterology, published online ahead of print.

ABSTRACT OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to perform an updated review to evaluate the effect of coffee consumption on the risk of gastric cancer. METHODS: We searched the PubMed and Embase database up to October 14th, 2013. Risk ratio (RR) and corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for the risk of gastric cancer were […]

B Nowotny et al, 2014, Low-energy diets differing in fibre, red meat and coffee intake equally improve insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetes: a randomised feasability trial, Diabetologia, published online ahead of print.

ABSTRACT: AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Epidemiological studies have found that a diet high in fibre and coffee, but low in red meat, reduces the risk for type 2 diabetes. We tested the hypothesis that these nutritional modifications differentially improve whole-body insulin sensitivity (primary outcome) and secretion. METHODS: Inclusion criteria were: age 18-69 years, BMI ≥30 kg/m2, type 2 diabetes […]

M M Werler et al, 2014. Maternal cigarette, alcohol, and coffee consumption in relation to club foot. Paediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology, published online ahead of print.

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Clubfoot is associated with maternal cigarette smoking in several studies, but it is not clear if this association is confined to women who smoke throughout the at-risk period. Maternal alcohol and coffee drinking have not been well studied in relation to clubfoot. METHODS: The present study used data from a population-based case-control study […]
