Coffee has more health benefits than risks
To coffee lovers’ delight, researchers have found that drinking coffee has more health benefits than risks in adults. Drinking coffee in moderation regularly, 3-4 cups per day, has a neutral effect on health serving as a potential benefit.
 
According to health experts, two-three cups of black, caffeinated coffee without sugar and a little bit or no milk can reduce the risk of liver disease – including liver cancer. Black coffee is also known to prevent diabetes. 
 
Serving another latent benefit, coffee plays an important role in lowering the risk of depression acting as a mild antidepressant agent to stimulate the production of neurotransmitters.
 
The myth that coffee is harmful for your health has long overshadowed its benefits. Coffee gives a magical boost to your stamina, keeps your heart healthy, improves your physical performance and refreshes your mind thus outweighing the risks it has to your health. 
 
The findings were published in the journal Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety.
