TEHRAN (Tasnim) – According to a major study, drinking one cup of coffee every day reduces the risk of contracting COVID-19 by around a tenth.
Scientists, who analysed the records of 40,000 British adults, think the drink protects against the virus.
They believe it contains health-boosting plant chemicals that may turbocharge the immune system, the Daily Mail reporetd.
A daily portion of vegetables has a similar effect, the study added.
But tea and fruit does not seem to help, while a diet heavy in processed meats – such as sausages and bacon – increases the chances of becoming severely ill.
The results were published in the journal Nutrients.
