Buzzkill research finds possible link between coffee and vision loss10/8/2012
Like a freshly brewed pot of coffee, it was too good to last. Following the good news about coffee helping you live longer, lowering your cancer risk and delaying the onset of Alzheimer's disease, new research has flagged a downside to that delicious cup of joe. After studying 120,000 people for more than two decades, researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston found that people who drank three or more cups a day increased their risk of developing exfoliation glaucoma. This eye disease can increase the risk of impaired vision and blindness, and the causes of exfoliation glaucoma are unknown. The study found the risk was increased with coffee consumption, not other products containing caffeine. [Source]
