ABSTRACT
The article presents a prospective study which evaluates the relation between intakes of coffee, decaffeinated coffee, tea, and total caffeine and the incidence of gout in a cohort of 89,433 women with no history of gout in the Nurses' Health Study in the U.S. The study was conducted over a 26-year period, using validated questionnaires. The results show an inverse association between higher coffee intake and the risk of gout in women.
