Drinking Four Cups Of Coffee A Day May Have Health Benefits

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".

It contains a number of wonder compounds which possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic properties which scientists believe might explain why drinkers experience lower rates of chronic liver disease and liver cancer.

Roasting coffee beans and drinking the ground results dates back to the 15th century, a practice that has become increasingly popular in modern Ireland but that often raises concerns for potential health implications. To acquire an understanding of its effects on human health, Robin Poole, a public health specialist at the University of Southampton in Britain, led an "umbrella review" of 218 studies around the world.

A new study has claimed that drinking three to four cups of coffee a day could be good for you.

An umbrella review, for the uninitiated, aggregates and synthesizes previous research and studies to generate a clearer understanding of what they all point to.


"Coffee drinking appears safe within usual patterns of consumption", Pool's team concluded in their research, published in the BMJ British medical journal late on Wednesday.

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.

However, But Prof Paul Roderick, co-author of the study, said it was hard to ascertain whether coffee had made the difference.

Researchers said drinking coffee was consistently associated with a lower risk of death from all causes and from heart disease, with the largest reduction in relative risk of death at three cups a day, compared with non-coffee drinkers. Women seem to benefit more than men with higher levels of consumption if factors like mortality from cardiovascular and coronary heart diseases are considered.

She said: "It looks like good news for regular coffee drinkers". Increasing consumption to above three cups a day was not associated with harm, but the beneficial effect was less pronounced. As always, feel free to sound off in the comments section below!
