Women who consume one or more cups of coffee each day have a 22% to 25% decrease in risk of stroke according to Susanna C. Larsson, PhD, of the National Institute of Environmental Medicine in Stockholm.
While some women have avoided drinking coffee because they thought it was unhealthy, Dr. Larsson and her colleagues have found evidence that moderate coffee consumption may decrease the risk of diabetes, liver cancer, and possibly stroke. The study found that women who drank one to two cups, three to four cups, or more than five cups of coffee daily had a lower risk for stroke than women who drank less than one cup a day. The investigators noted that they adjusted for such risk factors as age and smoking while conducting the study.
