Reveals The Relationship Between Drinking Coffee And COVID
Food - Drink
In the two years since the first coronavirus cases were reported, doctors and researchers have learned a lot more about how the virus ticks and what people can do to better fight it. One surprising thing that gives our immune system a boost is coffee.
According to a Northwestern University study, at least one cup of coffee a day can cut your risk of developing COVID by 10%. Marilyn Cornelis, who was part of the research team, thinks that a relatively unique component of coffee, a polyphenol called chlorogenic acid, might be the source of these benefits.
Nonetheless, the best way to protect yourself isn't knocking back extra cups of coffee. With more and more states looking to ease or drop their COVID-19 restrictions, the CDC continues to recommend masking up indoors, particularly in areas where the potential for "high and substantial transmission is present," and getting vaccinated.
