Coffee Is Officially Good For You (Again)

Study finds drinking coffee can cut risk of early death

They also found that drinking coffee lowered the risk of some cancers (including prostate, endometrial, skin and liver cancer), type 2 diabetes, gallstones, gout, liver disease and dementia.

Though researchers aren't suggesting people start chugging cups of joe, their review of more than 200 studies reveals that three to four cups of coffee might have some health benefits.

However, high levels of coffee consumption in pregnant women are linked to lower birth rates, preterm birth and pregnancy loss. Should people start drinking coffee for health reasons?

But Paul Roderick, co-author of the study, from the faculty of medicine at the University of Southampton, said the review could not say if coffee intake had made the difference.

The study conducted by researchers from the Universities of Edinburgh and Southampton and published on November 22 in The BMJ found that three to four cups of coffee every day is the optimum number, which was linked to a 17 percent decreased chance of death in comparison to non-coffee drinkers.

Scientists say because the study was based on mainly observational data, no firm conclusions could be drawn about cause and effect.


The authors conclude that coffee drinking "seems safe within usual patterns of consumption, except during pregnancy and in women at increased risk of fracture". "Does coffee prevent chronic disease and reduce mortality?"

But before we can start giving coffee to patients, we needed to know whether coffee drinking had any recognised harms, so we chose to conduct an umbrella review to capture as much important information about coffee drinking and health as we could. One eight-ounce cup of coffee typically has between 95 and 165mg of caffeine in it, according to the Mayo Clinic, but tea, energy drinks, soda, and foods like chocolate also contain caffeine - so make sure you're being mindful of your total intake.

Ultimately, the research lines up with recent reviews and studies that say drinking coffee doesn't seem to be hazardous. Without that sweet caffeinated high in the morning, many coffee-drinkers would turn into fire-breathing kraken monsters.

"There is an adjust of dangers in life, and the advantages of moderate utilization of coffee appear to exceed the dangers", he said. They found it had a major impact on heart problems, cutting the risk of developing cardiovascular disease by 15 percent and slashing the chance of a cardiovascular death by 19 percent.

However, it's worth noting that drinking a lot of coffee can also be detrimental to your health.
