- Coffee as possible protection against tinnitus: According to new research recently published in the American Journal of Medicine, consuming four to five cups of coffee a day may protect against the debilitating ear buzzing also known as tinnitus. The study examined more than 65,000 women and found that those who had the most coffee intake had dramatically reduced their risk of developing the constant ringing in the ears. As professor Gary Curhan, of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, stated: “We observed a significant inverse association between caffeine intake and the incidence of tinnitus among these women. The reason behind this observed association is unclear. We know caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, and previous research has demonstrated caffeine has a direct effect on the inner ear in both bench science and animal studies.” Researchers added that further evidence is needed to make any recommendations about whether the addition of caffeine would improve tinnitus symptoms. Tinnitus affects about five million Britons and in some cases leads its sufferers to suicide.

These nut butters were sold under the brand names Arrowhead Mills peanut butters and MaraNatha almond butters and peanut butters. Among other recalled products were some private label almond butters from grocers Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Kroger and Safeway. A total of fort fine production lots were affected. These products were sold in the United States, Canada, the Dominican Republic, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates.
