A study published in The American Journal of Medicine revealed that women who drink more coffee have a lower risk of having tinnitus.
Tinnitus is the so-called ringing in the ears that affect one in five people. The shrill ringing sound often occurs out of the blue and is not a condition itself. Rather, tinnitus is a symptom of an ear problem such as an injury inside the ear, age-related hearing loss or a problem in the circulatory system.
Endometrial cancer affects a female’s reproductive organs and this is a common condition among women in the U.S. An estimated one in 37 women are likely to have this in their lifetime. However, a new study has noted that coffee consumption up to three or four cups per day can lower the risk of endometrial cancer by a fifth.
The arteries also benefit from coffee as suggested by a new research. The study found that consuming three to five cups of coffee daily can prevent arteries from getting clogged and thereby, prevent heart attacks as well.

A study published in the journal PLOS ONE has shown that the problem of erectile dysfunction can now be prevented through regular coffee consumption. The benefit can be enjoyed through daily drinking of coffee from two to three cups.
Amid these latest developments, researchers stress the need to drink coffee in moderation. They warned that too much of this drink can increase a person’s risk of depression and even insomnia as it can disrupt sleeping hours particular during nighttime. Finally, women who plan to get pregnant should avoid coffee temporarily as caffeine can affect their chances of conceiving.
