The Neurology Times published a story on March 17, 2015 stating a Swedish study found that non-coffee drinkers had an elevated risk of developing multiple sclerosis by one and a half times above coffee drinks consuming at least four cups of coffee per day the year before the first signs of MS. A similar study done in the United States found comparable results with the difference being coffee drinkers drank at least six cups per day. “Caffeine intake has been associated with a reduced risk of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, and our study shows that coffee intake may also protect against MS,” states Ellen Mowry from John Hopkins University School of Medicine.
