Caffeine May Slow the Progression of MS! Woohoo!

Ah crappity, I think the video was taken down, because I can’t even find it anymore on Vimeo. Anyway, here’s a link to a WebMD article about caffeine and MS. Funny thing, when I googled, the first link that came up was this article, and the next was one claiming caffeine makes MS worse. How about that?

Here’s the WebMD Article

And here’s an article saying caffeine is evil and makes MS worse!

Okay, I’ll admit it, I love coffee. I’m actually trying to cut down on the amount I drink, because I don’t want to rely only on caffeine to get me through the day. This video article was posted three years ago, and unfortunately I don’t know what happened with further studies on caffeine in MS, but I love the thought of not completely giving up coffee!

Haha so upon further research: the study was only done on mice not people, on a condition “similar to MS”, and the equivalent amounts of caffeine given to these poor mice was more than anyone should be drinking in a day. So experts “wouldn’t advise people to change their caffeine intake.” Nuts! Further proof to not believe everything you find on the internet, even if it looks all shiny and official!
