High Daily Coffee Consumption May Lower Risk of MS

Although it has not been definitively proven that coffee could ward of MS, these findings add to the numerous studies that demonstrate evidence that coffee may be good for out health. “The intriguing findings indicate that the role of coffee in the development of MS clearly warrants further investigation, as do the mechanisms that underlie the relationship.
