N Eamudomkarn et al, 2018. Effect of postoperative coffee consumption on gastrointestinal function after abdominal surgery: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials, Scientific Reports, Volume 8 (1).

ABSTRACT Coffee is believed to prevent postoperative ileus. This systematic review and meta-analysis was undertaken to determine the effectiveness of coffee consumption in stimulating gastrointestinal function after abdominal surgery. A number of databases for randomized controlled trials comparing coffee consumption following abdominal surgery versus water drinking or no intervention were searched. Cochrane’s Risk of Bias […]

A M Navarro et al, 2018. Coffee consumption and total mortality in a Mediterranean prospective cohort, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Volume 108 (5).

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: The relation of coffee consumption with total mortality is controversial, because the available evidence is still inconsistent. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to assess this association in a highly educated, middle-aged Mediterranean cohort. DESIGN: We analyzed data from 201,055 person-years of follow-up arising from 19,888 participants. Coffee consumption was obtained at baseline with the use of a previously […]

D Schipp et al, 2018. Consumption of dark roast coffee blend reduces DNA damage in humans: results from a 4-week randomised controlled study, European Journal of Nutrition, published online.

ABSTRACT PURPOSE: To determine the DNA protective effects of a standard coffee beverage in comparison to water consumption. METHODS: The single-blind, randomised controlled study with parallel design included healthy women (n = 50) and men (n = 50) recruited from the general Central European population. The subjects were randomised in a coffee and a control group, with stratification for sex and body mass […]

J S Ong et al, 2018. Understanding the Role of Bitter Taste Perception in Coffee, Tea and Alcohol Consumption through Mendelian Randomization, Scientific Reports, Volume 8.

ABSTRACT Consumption of coffee, tea and alcohol might be shaped by individual differences in bitter taste perception but inconsistent observational findings provide little insight regarding causality. We conducted Mendelian randomization analyses using genetic variants associated with the perception of bitter substances (rs1726866 for propylthiouracil [PROP], rs10772420 for quinine and rs2597979 for caffeine) to evaluate the […]

P Mirmiran et al, 2018. Long-Term Effects of Coffee and Caffeine Intake on the Risk of Pre-diabetes and Type-2 Diabetes: Findings from a Population with Low Coffee Consumption, Nutrition Metabolism Cardiovascular Disease, published online.

ABSTRACT Background and Aim Here, we examined the potential effect of coffee consumption and total caffeine intake on the occurrence of pre-diabetes and T2D, in a population with low coffee consumption. Methods and results Adults men and women, aged 20-70 years, were followed for a median of 5.8 y. Dietary intakes of coffee and caffeine were estimated using a 168-food items validate […]
