Coffee Consumption and Health Outcomes: An Umbrella Review of the Evidence

It turns out the ideal quantity of coffee a person can drink per day is between three and four cups.

Drinking coffee was consistently linked with a lower risk of death from all causes and from heart disease.

The authors found that harmful associations linked to the caffeinated drink were "largely nullified" when other factors were taken into account such as smoking. The same benefits don't apply to pregnant women who, by drinking coffee, risk giving birth prematurely or even pregnancy loss.

Plenty of research brings evidence of the great health benefits of coffee, and a new study has just been added on the list. We found that there was a lower risk of both conditions in people who drank more coffee.

"As such, even small individual health effects could be important on a population scale".

He argued that the latest study showed that "coffee consumption seems generally safe", but added: "Coffee is often consumed with products rich in refined sugars and unhealthy fats, and these may independently contribute to adverse health outcomes".

In a related editorial, Eliseo Guallar, MD, MPH, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, warned that doctors should not begin to recommend coffee to help prevent or treat health complications.

Drinking coffee beyond these amounts was not associated with harm, but the benefits were less pronounced.

"Coffee is known to cause headaches in some people and it also increases the urge to go to the toilet - some people chose not to drink coffee for these reasons". Caffeine also acutely increases blood pressure, albeit transiently.

Numerous included studies may have adjusted for factors that may be associated with both the health outcome and with coffee drinking, such as smoking.
