Coffee drives Parkinson's away

The hypothesis of a link between coffee consumption and lower risk of developing certain neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's, finds further strength in the review study "Nutritional Risk Factors, Microbiota and Parkinson's Disease: What Is the Current Evidence?" published in the "Nutrients" journal, in which the most relevant research from 2000 to today has been reviewed, with the aim of investigating the genetic and environmental factors involved in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's.

As already highlighted by numerous studies, even in this case it would be confirmed that the consumption of coffee, in moderate doses and within a healthy and active lifestyle, favors a reduction or a delay in the onset of Parkinson's. the decisive factor, but the mechanism of action still remains to be clearly identified. Also in light of these results, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), in its opinion on the safety of caffeine, indicated that moderate coffee intake, typically 3-5 cups a day, is safe in the adult population and can be part of a healthy and balanced diet, and of an active lifestyle.
