Like coffee? Well, thanks to the University of Southampton and the University of Edinburgh! These countries have published a new study on daily coffee drinking. Studies have shown that drinking a cup of coffee a day can reduce the risk of several diseases. that’s right! Coffee can even prevent a person from dying from chronic liver disease. The study looked at lovers and haters in the UK. Of these, 78% (384,818) drank ground or instant caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee, while 22% (109,767) did not drink any type of coffee. Among those who did not drink joe, 3,600 had chronic liver disease. Further research proved that coffee lovers had a 21% lower risk of chronic liver disease, a 20% lower risk of chronic or fatty liver disease, and a 49% lower risk of death.

Sadly, there is a problem. The study recommends drinking three to four cups of coffee a day. You read that right. Meanwhile, those who drank ground beans had more health benefits than others. Grinding the beans retains more cafestol and cafestol nutrients, which can help prevent liver disease. But that’s not all! “There is consistent evidence from epidemiological studies that higher caffeine intake is associated with a lower risk of Parkinson’s disease (24% per 300 mg of caffeine),” Harvard wrote in a report. It has also been shown to reduce depression, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, Alzheimer’s and gallstones.

Since coffee beans contain more than 1,000 different chemicals, it can be difficult to pinpoint which chemicals are beneficial to human health. It’s not all good news…

Unfortunately, coffee does pose some problems. In 1991, coffee was finally added to the World Health Organization’s list of probable carcinogens because of its potential to cause cancer. However, the World Health Organization did remove it from the list five years ago. Still, some coffee makers continue to put cancer warnings on their packaging. Also, as you can imagine, drinking multiple cups of coffee throughout the day can seriously affect your sleep patterns.

Dr. Walter C. Willett, professor of nutrition and epidemiology at Harvard’s TH Chan School of Public Health, said he’s drinking less coffee because of poor sleep habits. “A lot of people with sleep problems don’t realize the connection to coffee,” he said. “You don’t have to hit zero consumption to minimize the impact on sleep.” People who drink coffee every day develop a caffeine tolerance. Some aficionados stop feeling rushed even after drinking it. You should also pay attention to how you prepare your coffee. “Everything people put into coffee results in as much as 500 to 600 calories of junk food,” adds Willett.

When in doubt, choose the decaffeinated type. In the absence of sleep interruptions, it still has great benefits.
