New research suggests coffee may be linked to a reduced risk of multiple sclerosis.
Studies in both Sweden and the US compared the coffee consumption of MS patients to a group of healthy adults.
The Swedish study found those who drank at least six cups of coffee a day were half as likely to develop MS than non-coffee drinkers.
In the US study, drinking four cups showed the same apparent protective effect.
Caffeine intake has already been associated with a lower risk of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.
