Are­cent re­view of 218 stud­ies on cof­fee and health found that peo­ple who drink three to four cups of cof­fee a day are at lower risk of a range of dis­eases and con­di­tions. They found that cof­fee drink­ing is as­so­ci­ated with lower risk of can­cer and car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­ease or death from any cause. How­ever, the lat­est study iden­ti­fied some po­ten­tial harms as­so­ci­ated with drink­ing 3 to 4 cups a day, namely in­creased risks for low birth weight, pre­ma­ture birth and mis­car­riage, as well as slightly higher risk of frac­ture in women. Re­search has shown that cof­fee con­sump­tion is more likely to ben­e­fit health than harm.
