Up to seven coffees a day can stop an early death

Posted November 25, 2017

Moderate coffee drinking is safe, and three to four cups a day may have some health benefits, according to a large review of previous studies, in the BMJ.

The research showed that those who consumed java regularly had lower risks of premature death, cardiovascular disease, Parkinson's disease, depression, dementia, some cancers, type two diabetes and liver disease.

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

Researchers collected evidence from over 200 studies on coffee consumption and health and published the findings in the Journal.

The study was led Robin Poole, a public health specialist at the University of Southampton. Scientists say because the study was based on mainly observational data, no firm conclusions could be drawn about cause and effect.

And this study is significant because while lower risks of liver disease, cancer, and stroke had been posited in the past, researchers had not been able to pinpoint coffee as the cause.

And coffee drinkers may have healthier livers and better glucose control than non-coffee drinkers.

Coffee is one of the world's most commonly consumed drinks, with an estimated 2.25billion cups drank around the world each day.

For other adults, moderate caffeine intake equates to 400mg or less per day - or three to four cups - but coffee isn't the only drink (or food) to bear in mind.
