F Rodriguez Artalejo and E Lopez Garcia, 2017. Coffee Consumption and Cardiovascular Disease: A condensed review of epidemiological evidence and mechanisms, Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, published online.

ABSTRACT Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages, and some studies have suggested it may be related to cardiovascular disease (CVD), the leading cause of poor health in the world. This manuscript reviews the evidence on the effect of habitual coffee consumption on CVD incidence and mortality. The review is based mostly on observational […]

J Lyngso et al, 2017. Association between coffee or caffeine consumption and fecundity and fertility: a systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis. Clinical Epidemiology, Volume 9.

ABSTRACT Objective: The aim was to investigate whether coffee or caffeine consumption is associated with reproductive endpoints among women with natural fertility (ie, time to pregnancy [TTP] and spontaneous abortion [SAB]) and among women in fertility treatment (ie, clinical pregnancy rate or live birth rate). Design: This study was a systematic review and dose–response meta-analysis including data […]

S Greulich et al, 2017. Effects of caffeine on the detection of ischemia in patients undergoing adenosine stress cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging, Journal of Cardiovascular Magentic Resonance, Volume 19 (1).

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Adenosine stress cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) can detect significant coronary artery stenoses with high diagnostic accuracy. Caffeine is a nonselective competitive inhibitor of adenosine2A-receptors, which might hamper the vasodilator effect of adenosine stress, potentially yielding false-negative results. Much controversy exists about the influence of caffeine on adenosine myocardial perfusion imaging. Our study sought to investigate the effects […]

J-Y Nie et al, 2017. Beverage consumption and risk of ulcerative colitis: A systematic review and meta-analysis of epidemiological studies, Medicine (Baltimore) Volume 96 (49).

ABSTRACT Epidemiological studies have provided controversial evidence between beverage consumption and the risk of ulcerative colitis (UC). This study aimed to determine the role of beverage consumption in the development of UC. A systematic search was conducted in public databases to identify all relevant studies, and study-specific relative risks (RRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) […]
