People who guzzle three to four cups of coffee a day benefit most from the hot drink's health benefits, according to a new study. It also decreases the risks of liver diseases, diabetes, some cancers, and dementia.
Researchers at the University of Southampton have concluded that as many four cups of coffee a day do a person more good than harm.
Earlier this year, Spanish researchers reported 20,000 people who drank at least four cups of coffee a day had a 64% lower risk of death than those who never or nearly never drank coffee.
Important to note: There isn't actually a "universally recognized standard coffee cup size", according to the study; what's more, the "bioactive components" contained within a single cup of coffee can vary depending on factors like the type of bean used and the method used to actually brew the coffee.
It's confirmed, different types of alcohol trigger different emotions in people
Rather, the researchers focused on the emotional associations with alcohol that may guide drinking preferences. Meanwhile, red wine (53 per cent) and beer (50 per cent) were found to be the most relaxing alcoholic drinks.
The study was led Robin Poole, a public health specialist at the University of Southampton.
As such, researchers said that, excluding pregnancy and women at risk of fracture, "coffee drinking appears safe within usual patterns of consumption". And, if you combined all of the research done on coffee and pooled together all of their conclusions, what would be the verdict?
It's the drink many have to start the day.
Coffee drinkers have a 36 per cent lower chance of developing Parkinson's disease and a 27 per cent lower risk of Alzheimer's, they found. But existing evidence is of lower quality from observational research and randomised controlled trials are needed to strengthen the evidence of benefits.
Facebook will soon let users know if they interacted with Russian accounts
Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, called the move a "very positive step" in a statement. The company believes some 146 million Americans were exposed to such posts.
Until recently people were warned against drinking more than a few cups of coffee a day, for fear that it might cause cancer.
There was less evidence for the effects of drinking decaffeinated coffee but it had similar benefits for a number of outcomes. The best outcome was witnessed for liver conditions like cirrhosis of the liver.
This audit recommends ladies in danger of cracks should likewise curtail coffee.
But a year ago the World Health Organisation withdrew its previous warnings on the link between coffee and bladder cancer - and instead said that the drink could, in fact, help protect against certain cancers such as womb cancer and liver cancer. "There is a balance of risks in life, and the benefits of moderate consumption of coffee seem to outweigh the risks". But they insist the findings prove moderate coffee consumption is safe, and more than likely to be good for you.
