Three to four cups of coffee per day slash disease risk

Drinking up to seven cups of coffee a day has been linked to cutting the chance of early death according to new research. Scientists at the University of Southampton found a lower risk of liver disease and some cancers in coffee drinkers, as well as a lower risk of dying from stroke.
The study does not suggest increased consumption of coffee for individuals as there is a need for further research as to the causes of the correlation.
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.
They caution pregnant women and women at high risk of fractures should limit their coffee consumption.
The research team was led by Dr Robin Poole, Specialist Registrar in Public Health at the University of Southampton, with collaborators from the University of Edinburg.
Umbrella reviews look at previous meta-analyses and provide a high-level summary of the combined research.
"There is a balance of risks in life, and the benefits of moderate consumption of coffee seem to outweigh the risks", he said.
Its warning also showed links between high caffeine intake in pregnancy and having a baby that is underweight. In other words, if you already drink coffee, enjoy it, but try to make it as healthy as possible.
At present, the researchers said pinning down exactly how coffee might have a positive impact on health was "difficult". The greatest benefit was seen for liver conditions, like cirrhosis.
There also seemed to be beneficial associations between coffee consumption and Parkinson's disease, depression and Alzheimer's disease.
However, the authors caution that most existing studies on the benefits of coffee are "of lower quality", as they are merely observational and do not explain causality.
However, drinking lots of coffee has an environmental downside.
The drink is more likely to ward off disease than to cause harm, according to the most comprehensive report yet conducted.
"The evidence is so robust and consistent across studies and health outcomes, however, that we can be reassured that drinking coffee is generally safe", he continues.
Finally, Guallar cautions that drinking coffee is sometimes linked with less healthful habits, such as eating sugary cakes or other fatty products. But they insist the findings prove moderate coffee consumption is safe, and more than likely to be good for you.
