  • United Kingdom study once again suggests coffee is quite good for you

A new study which looked at almost 220 studies on this brew found that moderate coffee drinkers are likely to have reduced risk of diseases like cancer, cirrhosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Drinking multiple cups of coffee offers the most health benefits, except for pregnant women and people who are prone to bone fractures, the study says.

The daily consumption of three to four coffee units increases life expectancy according to a review of 201 studies published by the British Medical Journal (BMJ).

They wrote: 'Coffee is highly consumed worldwide and could have positive health benefits, especially in chronic liver disease.

Although the review found that there was more benefit than harm from drinking coffee, the studies were not adjusted for important confounders, such as body mass index, smoking, age, alcohol use, income and education level. We found that there was a lower risk of both conditions in people who drank more coffee.

However, doctors warn that these findings aren't enough to advise those who aren't drinking coffee already to pick up the habit.




Late last century, several major scientific studies turned coffee into a bad guy, linking the popular beverage to heart problems and high blood pressure.

The article summarises the benefits of coffee "The conclusion of benefit associated with coffee consumption was supported by significant associations with lower risk for the generic outcomes of all-cause mortality, cardiovascular mortality, and total cancer".

Overall, our umbrella analysis showed that drinking coffee is more often linked with benefits than harms. We also found that it was associated with a lower risk of getting some types of cancer, Parkinson's disease, depression and Alzheimer's disease.

The European Food Safety Agency advises that people drink no more than four cups a day.

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