Up to seven coffees a day can stop an early death

More good news for coffee drinkers: a review of existing studies has found that overall, moderate coffee consumption is tied to a much lower risk of chronic disease. It also decreases the risks of liver diseases, diabetes, some cancers, and dementia.

Those who drink three or four cups of coffee every day could significantly reduce the chances of early death, a study suggests.

The NHS recommends pregnant women have no more than 200mg of caffeine a day - two mugs of instant coffee - because too much can increase the risk of miscarriage.

But Prof Paul Roderick, co-author of the study, from the faculty of medicine at University of Southampton, said the review could not say if coffee intake had made the difference.

The included studies used mainly observational data, providing lower quality evidence, so no firm conclusions can be drawn about cause and effect, but their findings back up other recent reviews and studies of coffee intake. As such, we had previously conducted two meta-analyses, one looking for links between coffee drinking and cirrhosis and another at coffee drinking and cancer of the liver.

Coffee is one of the most commonly consumed beverages worldwide and could have positive health benefits. And - get this - the optimum amount is three or four cups a day.

The Braves were forced to give up 12 prospects they had signed for an excess of $20 million due to their rule violations. He reported that the Braves had broken several rules, with the most severe being the packaging of signing bonuses.

The greatest risk reduction was noticed for liver cirrhosis: "any versus no coffee consumption" was linked to a 39 percent lower risk of developing this condition.

So, the authors urge that "robust randomized controlled trials are needed to understand whether the observed associations are causal".

Until recently people were warned against drinking more than a few cups of coffee a day, for fear that it might cause cancer.

However, it's worth noting that drinking a lot of coffee can also be detrimental to your health.

But a year ago the World Health Organisation withdrew its previous warnings on the link between coffee and bladder cancer - and instead said that the drink could, in fact, help protect against certain cancers such as womb cancer and liver cancer.

But he added: "Moderate coffee consumption seems remarkably safe, and it can be incorporated as part of a healthy diet by most of the adult population".
