Three to Four Cups of Coffee a Day Can Keep the Doctor Away

Written by 

That line you see at the Starbucks drive-thru every morning is no surprise, considering the average person in the U.S. drinks 3.1 cups of coffee each day. A new study may have those lines stretching well into the afternoon hours, though, since researchers have found that three to four cups of coffee can reduce your risk of health issues.

Researchers at the University of Southampton and the University of Edinburgh combined information from hundreds of studies on coffee use and health and noted that when compared to no coffee at all, those who drink three to four cups a day were less likely to develop cardiovascular problems.

Additionally, the study showed that those who drink three or four cups of coffee were 18 percent less likely to develop cancer. The study also found correlations between coffee consumption and the risk of conditions like diabetes, gallstones, and gout.

As long as consumption levels remain within three to four cups a day, the team concluded that coffee is a safe beverage, even bringing health benefits. Pregnant women and those with certain health conditions are the main exceptions to this. The results of the study were published in The British Medical Journal.
