Food Therapy: Coffee and Coffee caffeine, Risk of Endometriosis?

By Kyle J. Norton

Whole food ingredients in herbal plant have been found to process some significant effects in reduced risk and treatment of certain diseases, but single ingredient isolated from such plants may induce opposite responses.In compared to herbal medicine, food therapy even takes longer to ease symptoms, depending to stages of the treatment which directly address to the cause of disease.

Coffee is a popular and social beverage all over the world, particularly in the West, made from roasted bean from the Coffea plant, native to tropical Africa and Madagascar.

Epidemiological studies do not agreed that coffee regular intake is associated to risk of endometriosis, according to the IRCSS Fondazione Ca' Granda.

In a meta-analysis of epidemiological studies published up to January 2013 to analyze the relative risks (RR) of endometriosis for any, high and low versus no coffee/caffeine consumption, researchers filed the following reports
1. A total of six case-control and two cohort studies, including a total of 1,407 women with endometriosis were found in this review
2. The relative ratio were 1.26 and 1.13 for coffee and caffeine consumed participants respectively, in compared to non-consumption group
3. The overall relative ratio was 1.18 in coffee consumption group after taking into account of numbers of cup of coffee intake and other risk factors
4. Risk of endometrosis increased reduced to 1.09 in compared to high and low caffeine consumption as compared to no consumption, respectively.

Dr. Chiaffarino F, based on the information of this review said, "The present meta-analysis provided no evidence for an association between coffee/caffeine consumption and the risk of endometriosis. Coffee/caffeine consumption, as currently used in diet, does not carry a health risk".

Other, in the examine data from two case-control studies conducted in Northern Italy between 1984 and 1999 with 504 women aged < 65 years (median age 33 years, range 20-65) with a laparoscopically confirmed diagnosis of endometriosis, admitted to a network of obstetrics and gynaecology departments in Milan, Brescia and Pavia and 504 healthy women acted as control, researchers at the Università di Milano after adjusting to other risk factors suggested that there may be a link between diet and risk of endometriosis but coffee intake do not form significant risk of endometriosis incidence.

Contrast to the above studies, according to the cross-sectional study included 28,822 women, 1,228 women with endometriosis and the self-reported diagnosis was confirmed by medical records conducted by the joint institutes lead by the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Karolinska Institute, coffee intake was associated to risk of development of endometriosis.

The study also indicated that even coffee showed a positive association to risk of endometriosis, but future studies are needed to explore the significance of other factors such as age at menarche, level of education, body mass index (BMI), parity, oral contraceptive (OC) use, infertility, smoking, and alcohol intake in the diagnosis of endometriosis and understanding of its etiology.

Taking altogether, although there are conflict information related to coffee intake and risk of endometriosis, but women with family history of ednometriosis are recommended to reduce intake of coffee and coffee caffeine and consult with their doctors before applying high amount of coffee daily.
