According to a study by researchers at Northwestern University, drinking a cup of coffee a day may reduce the chances of contracting COVID-19. It says that one or more cups of coffee a day can reduce the risk of catching COVID-19 by up to 10%.
Compared to people who don’t drink coffee, people who take a daily dose of the caffeine drink are less likely to get a serious infection with COVID-19. He says: “Coffee consumption correlates favorably with inflammatory biomarkers such as CRP, interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor I (TNF-I), which are also associated to the severity and mortality of Covid-19. “
The Northwestern University study adds: “Coffee consumption has also been associated with a lower risk of pneumonia in the elderly. Overall, an immunoprotective effect of coffee against Covid-19 is plausible and merits investigation. further.”
The study evaluated data from 40,000 adults from UK Biobank. The study analyzed the correlation between eating routine and COVID-19 infection.
The study also suggests that eating more vegetables and less processed meat also works favorably in reducing the risk of contracting COVID-19.
The research said: “Our results support the hypothesis that nutritional factors may influence distinct aspects of the immune system, hence susceptibility to COVID-19. Encourage adherence to certain nutritional behaviors (eg, increasing consumption vegetables and reduce the consumption of processed meat) may be an additional tool to existing COVID-19 protection guidelines to limit the spread of this virus. ”
Although the results require independent confirmation, the study authors pitched the idea of specific eating behavior as an additional factor that needs to be added to current tools to counter COVID-19.
