  • Good news for coffee fans

People who drank between two and two and a half cups of coffee had a 4% lower risk of death from cancer.

How many afternoons have you sluggishly moseyed over to the office coffee machine and wondered, Is this really my fourth cup of the day? They noted that drinking coffee reduced all-cause mortality or risk writing that it decreased death rates, "irrespective of age, overweight status, alcohol drinking, smoking status, and caffeine content of coffee".

Most coffee lovers estimate their daily intake, but now new research from the University of South Australia (UniSA) recommends you not have more than six cups of coffee a day. Additionally, some of the previous studies the researchers analyzed didn't include information about the types of coffee people drank or substances like sugar and milk they may have added to the brew.

Previous research has found coffee is rich in antioxidants and may reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

The study was conducted to examine the association between coffee and mortality "in various subpopulations by characteristics of subjects", such as ageing, obesity and other lifestyle factors that impact mortality.

Authors write that coffee has been connected to a reduced risk of prostate cancer, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.

Because a "struggle ensued", the officer was forced to Tase the woman with his department-issued Taser, the release states. The officer then drew his duty weapon and fired multiple rounds at the woman, striking her at least once.


In the latest meta-analysis that was published in The European Journal of Epidemiology, similar findings emerged. Another team of researchers focused on finding out how much coffee will be consumed for the health conditions to outweigh the benefits.

These conclusions have led the researchers to believe that consuming a large quantity of coffee is linked to heart issues because of high blood pressure, which is a side effect of overdosing on caffeine.

A 2017 meta-analysis, published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), found that drinking three to four cups of coffee a day was associated with a lower risk of death and developing heart disease compared to drinking no coffee at all.

On this study Prof Hyppönen said, "In order to maintain a healthy heart and a healthy blood pressure, people must limit their coffees to fewer than six cups a day - based on our data six was the tipping point where caffeine started to negatively affect cardiovascular risk".

The research team used UK Biobank data of 346,077 individuals aged 37 to 73 years. Knowing the limits of what's good for you and what's not is imperative.

As caffeine is known to have various effects on the human body, both positive and negative, it has been the subject of discussion for many years as scientists study what caffeine can actually do to the body, Malay Mail reported.
