Systematic review article accepted for publication

A publication titled, “Benefit-Risk of Coffee Consumption and All-Cause Mortality: A Systematic Review and Disability Adjusted Life Year Analysis,” by ToxStrategies authors Candace Doepker, Naimisha Movva, Sarah Cohen [no longer with ToxStrategies], and Daniele Wikoff, has been published by Food and Chemical Toxicology. The paper is unique, in that a quantitative analysis was used within the benefit-risk assessment for foods (BRAFO) paradigm to assess potential harm and/or benefits of drinking coffee. In the paper, the BRAFO framework is applied to guide risk managers in decision making; in that context, the authors conclude that any policy that directs consumers to avoid drinking coffee may be a detriment to the overall health of the population, given the substantial potential benefits of coffee consumption on all-cause mortality for adults.
