Coffee May Be Kind to Your Kidneys
FRIDAY, Nov. 3, 2017
That's the suggestion of a new study that found that among more than 2,300 Americans with chronic kidney disease, those who drank the most caffeinated drinks reduced their risk of premature death by 24 percent.
"Our study showed a dose-dependent protective effect of caffeine consumption on all-cause mortality among patients with chronic kidney disease," said lead researcher Dr. Miguel Bigotte Vieira, from the Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Norte, in Lisbon, Portugal.
"However, our observational study cannot prove that caffeine reduces the risk of death, but only suggests the possibility of such a protective effect," he said.
