A new study finds caffeine may protect the lungs from damage caused by prolonged oxygen therapy, such as oxygen supplementation given to premature babies.
The article is the first of its kind to study the positive effects of caffeine on the lungs’ minute tissue structures.
It is published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology-Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology.

“The Power of the Placebo” es un documental que habla justamente de eso: Placebos; Cómo funcionan y cómo pueden aprovechar su poder curativo. El hecho es que las “pastillas ficticias” en efecto si funcionan, y a veces mucho mejor de lo que nadie podría haber imaginado.
Many of us rely on a cup of coffee or tea to wake up in the morning. Sip after sip, we begin to feel more alert, focused, happy, and energetic, despite a poor night’s sleep. Caffeine’s effects on the brain are due to the stimulant’s ability to block molecules that induce sleep.

- Deep down, we always knew it, but science is proving that cocoa and caffeine are indeed the best marriage ever. Researchers examined the acute effects of brewed cocoa consumption on attention, motivation to perform cognitive work and feelings of anxiety, energy and fatigue.
Um estudo publicado na revista Scientific Reports (do grupo Nature), descreve o mecanismo pelo qual a cafeína neutraliza deficiências cognitivas relacionadas à idade em animais.
A chronic inflammatory process that occurs in some, but not all, older people may trigger cardiovascular problems, a new Stanford study shows. Part of the solution might be found in a cup of coffee.
Stanford University School of Medicine scientists have unearthed a connection between advancing age, systemic inflammation, cardiovascular disease and caffeine consumption.
Extensive analysis of blood samples, survey data and medical and family histories obtained from more than 100 human participants in a multiyear study has revealed a fundamental inflammatory mechanism associated with human aging and the chronic diseases that come with it.
The study, published online Jan. 16 in Nature Medicine, implicates this inflammatory process as a driver of cardiovascular disease and increased rates of mortality overall. Metabolites, or breakdown products, of nucleic acids — the molecules that serve as building blocks for our genes — circulating in the blood can trigger this inflammatory process, the study found.
The study also provides evidence that caffeine and its own metabolites may counter the action of these circulating nucleic-acid metabolites, possibly explaining why coffee drinkers tend to live longer than abstainers.
