Take coffee as an example, did you know that-

 

Coffee lowers mortality by about 10-15%. The effect on mortality is mainly through lowering cardiovascular event rate (heart attacks and strokes).

It has been shown that only coffee made with filters leads to a lower mortality.

There is also a reduction in some cancers-particularly liver cancer.

Coffee protects the brain against some diseases. A 30% reduction in Alzheimers disease has been reported in people drinking coffee. There is also a reduction in Parkinson’s disease.

The ideal amount for an average person is 4 cups per day.

Women who drink coffee have a body fat percentage 4% less than those that do not-a substantial decrease.

There is a lower risk of diabetes in coffee drinkers.

However too much coffee tends to increase obesity and arthritis.

Decaffeinated coffee does contain some caffeine-5-10% of the ammount in caffeinated coffee.

Apart from caffeine coffee contains other compounds which are probably responisble for most of its beneficial effects.

So most people should drink coffee every day.

I decided to start this clinic as I have now retired after 35 years in the NHS in high intensity cardiac posts. I wanted to pass on some of my experience and to keep helping people. Also, I know from talking to patients that almost all of them benefit from and are keen to have more information about many everyday aspects of lifestyle.
