Moderate amount of coffee drinking is safe and about three or four cups a day may have some health benefits, the latest research claims
Scientists said Wednesday people who drink moderate coffee each day are more likely experience lower risks of premature death and heart disease than those who refuse.
This is important to know coffee may not only take care of your morning refreshment but it also provides health benefits. Every day more than two billion cups of coffee are drunk.
A research by British scientists of more than 200 studies on coffee consumption and health shows the result and it was published in BMJ, a British medical journal, Wednesday. Researchers say drinking coffee in usual patterns of consumption is safe.
Previous researchers have shown beneficial association links between coffee drinking and liver disease. The team conducted two analyses, one looked for links between coffee drinking and cirrhosis and another at coffee drinking and liver cancer. The result found that there was a lower risk of both cases in people who drank more amount of coffee.
Prof Paul Roderick, co-author of the study said, “There is a balance of risks in life, and the benefits of moderate consumption of coffee seem to outweigh the risks.”
Researchers also said moderate consumption of coffee also lowers the risk of cancer including endometrial, prostate, skin and liver cancer, gallstones and gout, as well as type 2 diabetes. Liver conditions get the highest benefit from three or four cups a day.
