Are you unsure if coffee is good for your health?

Although some early research suggested that coffee could cause health problems, more recent research shows that coffee has many health benefits.

Frank Hu, Chair of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health in an April 5, 2021 article in Discover, stated that “the overall evidence has been pretty convincing” that coffee is more beneficial than harmful for health. Moderate coffee consumption is possible for most people to incorporate into a healthy lifestyle.

Hu stated that moderate coffee consumption (about 2-5 cups per day) is linked to lower chances of type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Even people who consume coffee may be less likely to die young.

Early research found that coffee was linked to asthma and heart disease. Hu pointed out that many of those who participated in the studies smoked, which could have led to researchers assuming that coffee is responsible for the negative effects now associated with cigarettes. Hu said that any substance consumed regularly is subject to scrutiny. He said that in the past many people believed that coffee was bad. “So, I believe the good news is that coffee confers some health advantages for most people.”

According to the article, coffee should not be consumed by certain groups. There is not much information available about the effects of caffeine on children. Pregnancies could also be affected by coffee. People with anxiety disorders or panic disorder can experience anxiety from too much caffeine.

Experts recommend that coffee be brewed with a paper filter. Unfiltered coffee can cause early death and increase levels of LDL (or “bad”) cholesterol. Experts also recommend not adding too much cream or sugar.
