Health issues and studies[edit]

The paragraph "Studies have shown..." cannot clearly be related with the subject of this article. There may be a relationship, but it's not stated clearly. The paragraph refers to cofee consumption and some health effects, but never mentions the role of cafestol in such effects, nor the reasons why cafestol is relevant to those studies. I didn't find any tag which seemed right for this, so I open the question here. Any advise? --Paiconos 17:08, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Boiled coffee?[edit]

The problem here is relevance: a coffee should never be brought to a boil, otherwise it's spoilt. (As in the French proverb "café bouillu, café foutu", which roughly translates as "Boiled coffee, spoiled coffee")

What is the role of cafestol in regular coffee, which people don't boil? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.58.47.150 (talk) 20:28, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Cafestol in espresso?[edit]

To what degree is it present in espresso? Anyone have any information on this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Meltyman (talkcontribs) 13:09, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Biochemistry and Metabolism[edit]

Wow, there's a lot of missing information here. I'll try to help where I can. CYP3A4 lists cafestol as an inducer, but the references are scant. Anyone have any references or other information on cafestol metabolism or pharmacokinetics? --Jmcclare (talk) 01:28, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Cafestol. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Health risks of "cafestol"[edit]

I think it is very important to warn readers of this page about the health risks associated with cafestol. It leads to a higher risk for heart and vessel illnesses for example and this is one of the main reasons why the WHO has set the maximum amount of cups of coffee to 4 cups a day. The message of the article is now that there are positive effects associated with the cafestol in caffeine, but this message is not realistic and I would suggest as such to edit the article to acquire a more balanced and honest message. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tiker95 (talkcontribs) 11:50, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

These assertions are highly disputable on multiple grounds. If you have a point to make, please cite studies or reviews. --Hyperforin (talk) 03:55, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
