Drinking Coffee Linked to Lower Stroke Risk in Women

by | March 12th, 2011

Drinking 1 to 5 cups of coffee a day was associated with a 22% to 25% lower risk for stroke in a large group of Swedish women followed up for an average of about 10 years, according to research released today.

“There was no dose-response relationship between coffee consumption and risk for total stroke, rather the risk appeared to be increased among women with low or no coffee consumption,” the study team notes in the March 10 online issue of Stroke.

Because coffee is one of most widely enjoyed beverages in the world, “even small health effects of substances in coffee may have large public health consequences,” Susanna Larsson, PhD, lead author of the study and a researcher in the Division of Nutritional Epidemiology, National Institute of Environmental Medicine, Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, noted in a statement.
