Drinking Coffee May Cut Risk Of Covid-19 Infection: Study

A cup of coffee a day can do more than just keeping you alert while working from home during the pandemic. It may help reduce your risk of Co vid-19 infection. According to a new study, drinking one or more cups of coffee per day was associated with about a 10 per cent decrease in risk of Covid-19, compared to less than one cup daily.

Led by researchers from the Northwestern University in the US, the study also suggested that eating more vegetables, and less processed meats, could reduce the risk of Covid-19 infection. The study results were published in the journal Nutrients.

Coffee has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and the new study suggested that coffee consumption has positive effects on inflammatory biomarkers such as CRP, interleukin-6 (IL-6), and tumour necrosis factor I (TNF-I), which are also linked to Covid-19 severity and mortality. Further, drinking coffee has been associated with lower risk of pneumonia in elderly. "Taken together, an immunoprotective effect of coffee against Covid-19 is plausible and merits further investigation," the authors noted.
