  • Drink up Three cups of coffee a day 'may have health benefits'

Dr Robin Poole of the University of Southampton, who led the research, said coffee was "more likely to benefit health than harm".

Coffee was also associated with a lower risk of several cancers, including prostate, endometrial, skin and liver cancer, as well as type 2 diabetes, gallstones and gout.

The BMJ said that to three to four cups of coffee a day is categorised as a moderate intake - 400mg or less per day. Additionally, there was a correlation between high coffee consumption and increased risk of bone fractures in women, although not in men. Drinking that amount lets you reap the health benefits of coffee without risk of harm. A high coffee intake was linked with an 18 percent decrease in cancer risk, compared with a low intake. One eight-ounce cup of coffee typically has between 95 and 165mg of caffeine in it, according to the Mayo Clinic, but tea, energy drinks, soda, and foods like chocolate also contain caffeine - so make sure you're being mindful of your total intake.

It's the drink many have to start the day.

Contrasted and non-coffee consumers, the individuals who drank around some coffee daily seemed to diminish their danger of getting heart issues or passing on from them.

They wrote: 'Coffee is highly consumed worldwide and could have positive health benefits, especially in chronic liver disease. But existing evidence is of lower quality from observational research and randomised controlled trials are needed to strengthen the evidence of benefits.

Roasting coffee beans and drinking the ground results dates back to the 15th century, a practice that has become increasingly popular in modern Ireland but that often raises concerns for potential health implications.

The drink is more likely to ward off disease than to cause harm, according to the most comprehensive report yet conducted.

"Factors, for example, age, regardless of whether individuals smoked or not and how much exercise they took could all have had an impact", he said.

As the paper points to health benefits "associated" with coffee consumption, but not proved to be causal, researchers believe further studies would be beneficial.

"Even with these caveats, moderate coffee consumption seems remarkably safe, and it can be incorporated as part of a healthy diet by most of the adult population."
