THREE coffees a day? You're just being healthy, researchers say

Drink up: Three cups of coffee a day 'may have health benefits' Three Coffees a Day Brings More Health than Harm

A review of more than 200 studies found coffee consumption was "more often associated with benefit than harm", adding even people who drank as many as seven cups of coffee were likely to be safe.

The findings also showed that coffee consumption was linked to lower risks of diabetes, liver disease and dementia.

Coffee drinkers were also found to experience lower risks of premature death and heart disease.

The research team, which also included experts from the University of Edinburgh, reviewed all the available evidence on coffee consumption, combining the findings of 201 published studies.

If you are drinking three to four cups of coffee a day, you are likely to get some health benefits than those who do not drink the brew at all.

Pregnant women, for example, are at greater risk of losing their baby if they drink too much coffee, and the caffeine also slightly raises the risk of bone fractures among women.

But Prof Paul Roderick, co-author of the study, from the faculty of medicine at University of Southampton, said the review could not say if coffee intake had made the difference. What we can say is that people who already enjoy moderate amounts of coffee as part of their diet are most probably getting health benefits from it, rather than harm. In other words, if you already drink coffee, enjoy it, but try to make it as healthy as possible.

What's more, they are calling for thorough clinical trials on coffee admission to discover more about the potential advantages to wellbeing.

"Mothers-to-be need not panic but might want to limit their coffee consumption to two cups per day in line with the recent European guidelines on caffeine". The best outcome was witnessed for liver conditions like cirrhosis of the liver.

"The evidence is so robust and consistent across studies and health outcomes, however, that we can be reassured that drinking coffee is generally safe", he continues.

As this study shows, 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.

But, this news might not be strong enough to start a coffee habit.
