Three Coffees a Day Linked to Good Health

Man drinking coffee

Coffee drinking is also linked to a lower risk of Parkinson's disease, depression, and Alzheimer's disease, the study found.

Drinking more than three cups a day was not associated with any risk of harm - however the benefits were found to be less pronounced.

The study found that: "high versus low coffee consumption was associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer, endometrial cancer, melanoma, oral cancer, leukaemia, non-melanoma skin cancer, and liver cancer". So even if scientists found out that drinking it was bad for your health, most coffee-drinkers wouldn't pay any attention. As such, we can't yet definitively say that drinking coffee is an effective means of prevention for, say, cirrhosis or cardiovascular disease.

The research team said that most of the evidence backing the research has come from observational studies, which can only find probable associations but can't prove cause and effect. Women who drink more than four cups daily also are at greater risk for bone fractures, but not men. "Factors such as age, whether people smoked or not and how much exercise they took could all have had an effect", he says.

Coffee drinkers also appeared to have lower risks for heart disease.

Coffee is the most loved and desired drink consumed throughout the world.

Across nearly all health outcomes reviewed, coffee consumption was found to either not increase risk or actually decrease risk to negative health outcomes.

Despite those findings, researchers couldn't actually prove whether coffee was the cause and warned that too much of it could be harmful for pregnant women.

While overall it may be beneficial, some people may be at higher risk of adverse effects, he said, and there is "substantial uncertainty" about the effects of higher levels of intake.

The researchers carried out an umbrella review, which combined previous meta-analyses and gave a high-level summary of research findings, to get important information about coffee drinking and health and to know if it had any recognized harm.

This is not the first discovery of coffee's positive benefits.
