For most Canadians,
coffee is part of the fabric of everyday life. It can be a
morning ritual, a mid-morning pick me up, or an after dinner
treat. Ever versatile, coffee can be savoured alone or with
friends and conversation.
What coffee doesn't have to be is a guilty
pleasure. The truth is that coffee is a safe and natural beverage
choice. In fact, an emerging body of credible scientific research
suggests that coffee may have a preventative role in various
diseases, including various cancers, diabetes and Parkinson's'
disease to name a few.
Offered as an educational resource
for both consumers and healthcare professionals, coffeeandhealth.ca
highlights and summarizes current research on relevant topics.
The Coffee Association of Canada invites you to explore the
world of coffee and health and suggests you discuss any personal
health issues with an appropriate professional who is familiar
with your specific medical conditions.
