Coffee health benefits: Drinking THIS much could protect you from killer illnesses

Coffee health benefits: Drinking THIS much could protect you from killer illnesses

Dr Oyinlola Oyebode, Associate Professor at the University of Warwick, said: "The main conclusions are moderate coffee consumption is not just safe, but more likely to be associated with benefits to health in the majority of adults".

Early risers will be happy to hear that drinking more coffee isn't necessarily a bad thing, following research which has found that three to four cups a day offers "the greatest benefit" to caffeine lovers.

However the authors of the study also point out that the potential health benefits are not universal, with coffee consumption by pregnant women linked to a higher risk of miscarriage.

However, the BMJ research, which drew on over 200 studies, found coffee to be associated with lower risk of some cancers, diabetes, liver disease and dementia.

"That said, our results suggest moderate coffee drinking - up to around three cups per day - is not detrimental to your health, and that incorporating coffee into your diet could have health benefits".

Coffee is one of the most commonly consumed beverages worldwide and could have positive health benefits.

Dr Poole and researchers from the University of Edinburgh reviewed 201 studies that had aggregated data from observational research and 17 studies that collected statistics from clinical trials. But they said their findings support other recent reviews and studies of coffee intake.

The research that was collected with the proofs from the previous two hundred or more conducted researches indicates that coffee consumption lowers premature death risks and prevents heart diseases.

She said: "It looks like good news for regular coffee drinkers". They warned people should not start drinking coffee, or increasing their intake, for health reasons.

While its consumption is still linked to harm in pregnancy, it has shown "beneficial associations" with rates of Parkinson's disease and depression. They also urge coffee drinkers to stick to "healthy coffees", so your Venti Iced Toffee Nut Latte with Hazelnuts and White Chocolate Mocha Sauce might be off the menu.

Finally, coffee is often consumed with products rich in refined sugars and unhealthy fats, "and these may independently contribute to adverse health outcomes", he added.
