Food Therapy: Coffee< or = 3 Cups/day in Reduced Risk of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Incidence

Kyle J. Norton, Master of Nutrients

Total coffee intake daily is associated to non risk factor but attenuated risk of incidence of rheumatoid arthritis, the  joint study by the Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston and a Asian study, suggested, respectively.

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

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic disorder as a result of inflammation, affecting mostly the flexible (synovial) joints and tissues and organs in the body.

The disease affects more women than men and generally occurs after the ages of 40, causing diminished quality of life of many elders.

In the follow up study of 83,124 women, completed the FFQ at baseline, the diagnosis of incident RA(between 1980 and 2000) with a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) completed every 4 years, from baseline in 1980 through 1998, researchers found that
1. Decaffeinated coffee consumption of >/=4 cups/day (compared with no decaffeinated coffee consumption) showed no subsequent risk of incident RA
2. There was no relationship of incidence of RA or reduced incidence RA in caffeinated coffee consumption, regardless to numbers of cup intake daily.
3.Total coffee and total caffeine consumption were also not associated with the risk of RA.

On the other hand, according to the Korea University College of Medicine, the numbers of coffee intake daily in reduced RA incidence were substantially different in number studies.The highest category of coffee intake in Heliovaara et al. cohort study from Finland was up to 13 cups per day, while US studies was  > 4 cups coffee intake per day.

The study also emphasized that caffeine showed no significant association of RA incidence in compared to caffeinated coffee consumption in ameliorated risk RA incidence.

Furthermore, the study in valuated coffee, tea, and caffeine consumption and risk factors for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) onset among older women, indicated that  risk of RA reduced substantially with drinking > 3 cups/day of decaffeinated coffee in compared to non drinkers.

Interestingly, women who have never drunk coffee before showed an increased risk RA if daily intake of decaffeinated coffee is over 4 cups.

Dr. Mikuls TR, the lead author said, "Decaffeinated coffee intake is independently and positively associated with RA onset" and "Further investigations of decaffeinated coffee and tea intake as arthritis risk factors are needed to verify these findings and explore their biologic basis".

Collectively, the finding evidences suggested that coffee intake is not an independent risk factor but a reduced risk parameters for onset of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) incidence, depending to numbers of cup consumption per day.
