Over the past few years, a series of studies have come out showing that drinking coffee--in fact, drinking a lot of coffee--has significant health benefits. In fact, some suggested there could be big benefits in drinking copious amounts. Worldwide, experts estimate that people consume around 2.25 billion cups of coffee per day. Researchers have looked at the benefits of drinking coffee for conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and liver disease. There is evidence to support some, but not all, of these claims. Coffee contains a number of useful nutrients, including riboflavin (vitamin B-2), niacin (vitamin B-3), magnesium, potassium, and various phenolic compounds, or antioxidants. Some experts suggest that these and other ingredients in coffee can benefit the human body in various ways. Recent studies have revealed how the amount of coffee we drink each day impacts our risk of heart attack, stroke, and death from all causes.
Here’s what they found.
(a) Italian researchers found that coffee consumption lowers the risk of liver cancer by around 40%. Some of the results suggest that people who drink three cups per day might have a 50% lower risk. Also, a 2019 literature concluded that “coffee intake probably reduce the risk of liver cancer.”
(b) A research which included 468,629 participants, who were divided into 3 groups based on their coffee consumption: none (do not drink coffee regularly), light to moderate (0.5 to 3 cups), and high (more than 3 cups per day). They found that the light to moderate coffee drinkers of 0.5 to 3 cups per day had a lowered risk of all-cause mortality of 12% compared to non-coffee drinkers. They also found a 17% lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease and a 21% lower risk of stroke.
(c) In 2014, researchers who gathered data on over 48,000 people found that those who increased their coffee consumption by at least one cup per day over 4 years had an 11% lower risk of type 2 diabetes than those who did not increase their intake. A meta-analysis from 2017 concluded that people who drank four to six cups of either caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee each day appeared to have a lower risk of metabolic syndrome, including type 2 diabetes.
