The research concludes that three to four cups of coffee per day offered the optimum health benefits, lowering the risk of developing heart problems, diabetes, liver disease, depression, dementia and some cancers, and overall would reduce the chances of an early death by 17 per cent.

At the same time, high consumption is associated with an increased risk of bone fractures in women, and can also lead to a higher risk of rheumatoid arthritis.

"I think now we can be reasonably reassured that overall, coffee drinking is a safe habit", Dr Eliseo Guallar, Professor of Epidemiology and Medicine at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, mentioned in his editorial which accompanied the study.

Coffee is the most loved and desired drink consumed throughout the world. As such, they say, excluding pregnancy and women at risk of fracture, "coffee drinking appears safe within usual patterns of consumption" and they suggest that coffee could be safely tested in randomised trials.

"A new study has demonstrated that moderate coffee drinking is more likely to be beneficial than harmful to health."

To better understand the effects of coffee consumption on health, a team led by Robin Poole, from the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom, carried out an umbrella review of 201 studies. The best outcome was witnessed for liver conditions like cirrhosis of the liver.

New analysis shows the popular beverage is associated with a lower risk of death with the largest reduction in risk coming from three cups a day. "There is a balance of risks in life, and the benefits of moderate consumption of coffee seem to outweigh the risks".

The research also contains some detail on the difference in coffee preparation.

"Factors such as age, whether people smoked or not and how much exercise they took could all have had an effect", he said.

Coffee is one of the most commonly consumed drinks worldwide. "That may be a simple question, but as with most things dietary related, there isn't a simple answer", said Dr Amelia Lake of Teesside University. Increasing consumption to above three cups a day was not associated with harm, but the beneficial effect was less pronounced.
