Three to four coffees a day likely to do more good than harm

According to a recent review in the British Medical Journal, consuming three to four cups of coffee a day is likely to do more good than harm.

The review, based on 201 previous studies on coffee, revealed drinking coffee was consistently linked with a lower risk of death from all causes and from heart disease. The largest reduction in risk of premature death was seen in people who consumed three cups of coffee a day, compared with non-coffee drinkers.

The research showed coffee was also associated with a lower risk of several cancers, type-2 diabetes, gallstones and gout. The greatest benefit was seen for liver conditions such as cirrhosis of the liver.

The research concluded that coffee consumption “seems generally safe within usual levels of intake, with summary estimates indicating largest risk reduction for various health outcomes at three to four cups a day, and more likely to benefit health than harm”.
