There is some evidence that coffee may induce a Th1 response.[1]

Arabinogalactan, a coffee bean polysaccharide, increased the production of macrophages as well as of Th1 cytokines IL-12p40 and IFN-gamma.[2] It also ameliorated allergic response in a mouse model of dermatitis.[3]

Coffee reduces the risk of liver, kidney, premenopausal breast cancer and colorectal cancer.[4]
