Coffee prevents kidney problems


Did you know your morning cup of coffee could do more than make you feel awake?

Research shows it can help significan­tly lower the risk of kidney failure.

A study by Johns Hopkins University showed those who drank any amount of coffee each day had a 15 per cent lower risk than those who didn’t. Meanwhile, those who drank two to three cups a day had a 22 per cent lower risk.

“We suspect that either biological­ly active compounds combined with caffeine or just the caffeine itself improves kidney function,” says Dr Charig Parikh, director of nephrology at the university in Maryland in the US.
