Abstract

Abstract Over the last decade much controversy has been evoked by various epidemiological studies which associated coffee drinking with birth defects and cancer. Since both cancer induction and birth defects are related, at least in part, to DNA changes, mutagenicity tests have been increasingly used in the past few years to screen for environmental compounds including coffee which might damage the DNA. In this article. H. U. Aeschbacher describes the testing of coffee - which contains over 1000 different chemicals - and concludes that the coffee habit appears to be safe.
