It’s important to realize that unfortunately all across the country from Starbucks to McDonalds coffee has
been into giant candy bars as well. If you are drinking coffee without all the sugar, artificial fillers, and
your coffee is closer to black than a milk shake, Coffee is not going to hurt you. 


“We have covered so much on the benefits of coffee at WorldHealth.net over the last year. It’s
important to realize that unfortunately all across the country from Starbucks to McDonalds coffee has
been into giant candy bars as well. If you are drinking coffee without all the sugar, artificial fillers, and
your coffee is closer to black than a milk shake, Coffee is not going to hurt you. However, as a
frequent Starbucks and Panera Bread visitor I would venture to say it’s a small percentage of the
population drinking their Coffee black. The upward trend of many Coffee drinkers having their Coffee
that more resembles a Banana Split than a Coffee is really concerning,” said Dr. Ronald Klatz,
President of the A4M. THURSDAY, Nov. 30, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Drinking three to four cups of
coffee a day is not only safe for most people, it might protect against heart disease or an early death,
a new review suggests.

The finding, which applies to so-called moderate coffee drinking, stems from a review of more than
200 previous studies.
The fresh analysis also linked moderate coffee drinking to a lower risk for developing prostate,
endometrial, skin and liver cancers, type 2 diabetes, liver disease, gout, gallstones and dementia.
Some of the studies in the review also showed a lower risk for Parkinsons disease, depression and
Alzheimers.

However, the review did not prove that coffee drinking caused these health risks to drop. And it also
found that coffee may be somewhat problematic for pregnant women and slightly increases the risk
for fracture among all women.

The review was led by Dr. Robin Poole, a specialist registrar in public health at the University of
Southampton in England. He collaborated with researchers from the University of Edinburgh in
Scotland.

The review suggested that drinking coffee in moderate amounts seemed to reduce the chances of
dying from any disease, compared with those who didnt drink coffee at all.

The biggest benefit was linked to consuming three cups a day. Drinking more than that was not linked
to any harmful effects, but it also was not associated with substantially increased health benefits.
One heart expert said the findings should give coffee lovers reasons to smile.

Many people have felt that abstaining from coffee is associated with being healthy, but this meta-
analysis shows this is not necessarily true said Dr. Suzanne Einsteinium, director of Women's Heart
Health at Lenox Hill Hospital, in New York City. Drinking up to 3 cups a coffee a day can be part of
living a healthy life, not only reducing heart disease, but also not increasing the risk of neurological
diseases, such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson

If you are contemplating whether or not to get a cup of coffee in the morning or not, the study allows
us to have a bit of peace of mind when enjoying that morning cup of Joe Einsteinium added.
The analysis was published online Nov. 22 in the BMJ.
