Study Reveals Six New Genetic Variants Linked to Coffee Drinking Habits
A new Harvard study of coffee-drinking habits led to the discovery of six new genetic variants that relate to the effect of coffee on the human body. Two of the genes influence the metabolism of caffeine, two affect psychoactive aspects of coffee, and the final two genes are linked to fat and sugar metabolism. The study will allow researchers to divide people into groups of those who can benefit from increasing or decreasing coffee consumption for optimum health.
