Study say that drinking coffee three times a day can have health benefits

Coffee health benefits: Drinking THIS much could protect you from killer illnesses

The research, which collated evidence from more than 200 previous studies, also found coffee consumption was linked to lower risks of diabetes, liver disease, dementia and some cancers.

"The link between coffee drinking and reduced risk of development of heart failure and stroke was consistently noted in all three studies", said lead author of the project Dr. Laura Stevens.

Researchers warned that drinking coffee could be bad for pregnant women and added that it was also linked to a very small increased risk of fracture in women.

However, Eliseo Guallar of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health said, "Doctors should not recommend drinking coffee to prevent disease - and people should not start drinking coffee for health reasons as there is substantial uncertainty about the effects of higher levels of intake".

Coffee is one of the world's most commonly consumed drinks with an estimated 2.25billion cups drank around the world each day.

The researchers concluded that coffee drinking "seems safe within usual patterns of consumption, except during pregnancy and in women at increased risk of fracture".

The protection was greatest for liver and bowel tumours.

Dr Poole and researchers from the University of Edinburgh reviewed 201 studies that had aggregated data from observational research and 17 studies that collected statistics from clinical trials.

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.

There also appeared to be beneficial associations between consumption and Parkinson's disease, depression and Alzheimer's.

"Factors such as age, whether people smoked or not and how much exercise they took could all have had an effect", he said.

The BMJ said that to three to four cups of coffee a day is categorised as a moderate intake - 400mg or less per day.

The research also contains some detail on the difference in coffee preparation.

"The findings show drinking coffee is more likely to benefit health rather than cause harm. That may be a simple question, but as with most things dietary related, there isn't a simple answer", said Dr Amelia Lake of Teesside University.

"But something to bear in mind is that your coffee often comes with high fat, high sugar products such as flavoured syrups and we are clear that these are not good for health".
