每天兩杯咖啡可以“使您的壽命延長兩年”

一項新的研究表明,每天喝兩杯咖啡可能是延長壽命的關鍵。 根據發表在 歐洲流行病學雜誌,發現每天喝兩杯咖啡可以使您的預期壽命延長兩年。 在該研究中,研究了40例病例,其中包括300萬名受試者和450,256個死亡原因。 研究人員發現,喝咖啡與全因死亡率成反比關係-“與年齡,超重狀況,飲酒,吸煙狀況和咖啡因含量無關”。 研究人員稱,適度的咖啡消費,例如每天兩到四杯,“與不喝咖啡相比,減少了全因和特定原因的死亡率”。 但是,預期壽命並不是降低咖啡風險的唯一方法,因為咖啡似乎降低了罹患癌症,心血管疾病,糖尿病或呼吸系統疾病和死亡的風險。 這項研究的目的是通過年齡,肥胖和其他影響死亡率的生活方式因素,研究對象“各亞群中咖啡”與死亡率之間的關係。 在這項研究中,它表明咖啡與死亡率之間的聯繫比美國的逆向聯繫要強。 與咖啡和健康相關問題的鏈接不是新話題。 過去,這歸因於前列腺癌的緩慢生長,發育遲緩,整體心臟健康改善以及患阿爾茨海默氏症或帕金森氏病的風險降低。 在調查結果中,法國國家衛生與醫學研究所的研究主任Astrid Nehlig告訴《星期日泰晤士報》:“很難計算,但我的感覺是,喝咖啡可能會使您的生活再延長幾年” –並且關注度和警覺性提高可能是部分原因。

什麼是咖啡?

通過緊閉、細碎的濃縮咖啡,將約 1.5 盎司的熱水強制製成濃縮咖啡。如果一切順利,結果就是一種深棕色、略厚的液體,上面有少量的火泡(泡沫,有點像啤酒的頭)。 在製作一杯濃縮咖啡的過程中,有許多變數。水的溫度,水的壓力,研磨咖啡的細度和咖啡的包裝有多緊只是幾個。熟練的濃縮咖啡壺,或咖啡師,控制所有這些變數,以產生一個高品質的濃縮咖啡。讓我們從最重要的變數之一開始:咖啡。 咖啡 咖啡咖啡是來自不同國家幾種不同類型的咖啡豆的混合體。豆子被烤,直到它們黑暗和油味。 咖啡豆的研磨非常精細,比滴咖啡壺要細得多。稠度幾乎像糖粉。咖啡的研磨越細,濃縮咖啡的出出速度就越慢。一般來說,對於最好的濃縮咖啡,它應該需要大約25秒的水通過咖啡。有時,研磨被調整,以控制釀造時間。 例如,要蒸一些牛奶,比如一家咖啡館拿鐵,你把一個裝有一些冷牛奶的容器放在蒸汽棒下面,這樣魔杖就被淹沒了。然後,將閥門轉向蒸汽位置。這啟動了電阻加熱器,該加熱器快速將加熱容器中的水煮沸並打開閥門,從而啟動蒸汽流出噴嘴。泵間歇性運行,以保持加熱容器供水。蒸汽會迅速加熱牛奶,如果把蒸汽噴嘴靠近牛奶表面,可以用來製造泡沫。 有幾十種不同的濃縮咖啡飲料,你可以用濃縮咖啡來製作。在咖啡機的説明下,您可以探索自己的咖啡。這也是一種尋找與家人和朋友一起尋找美好時光的方式,比如製作拿鐵藝術或製作最好的濃縮咖啡。
