    Coffee -It's Good For You

    Slightly over a year ago the World Health Organization officially decided that coffee was no longer bad for you. Recently, the British Medical Journal reviewed the evidence across meta-analyses of observational and interventional studies of coffee consumption and any health outcome.

    • The umbrella review identified 201 meta-analyses of observational research with 67 unique health outcomes and 17 meta-analyses of interventional research with nine unique outcomes.
    • Coffee consumption was more often associated with benefit than harm for a range of health outcomes.
    • There was evidence of a non-linear association between consumption and some outcomes, with summary estimates indicating largest relative risk reduction at intakes of three to four cups a day versus none, including:
    • all cause mortality (relative risk 0.83, 95% confidence interval 0.83 to 0.88),
    • cardiovascular mortality (0.81, 0.72 to 0.90),
    • and cardiovascular disease (0.85, 0.80 to 0.90).
    • High versus low consumption was associated with an 18% lower risk of incident cancer (0.82, 0.74 to 0.89). Consumption was also associated with a lower risk of several specific cancers and neurological, metabolic, and liver conditions.
    • Harmful associations were largely nullified by adequate adjustment for smoking, except in pregnancy. There was also an association between coffee drinking and risk of fracture in women but not in men.

    Love me some coffee. The money shot:



    "Coffee consumption seems generally safe within usual levels of intake, with summary estimates indicating largest risk reduction for various health outcomes at three to four cups a day, and more likely to benefit health than harm."

    Those who want to take their coffee to the next level of win, my Bomb Proof recipe is, well, the bomb.

    Thanks CW! Its nice when we find out good things about habits we already have, not that I would stop drinking it if the results were the opposite

    I had also read recently (can't remember where) that coffee is the largest source of antioxidants for most North Americans.

    I love coconut oil/butter combo in my coffee and this has piqued my interest. Is there a recipe on that page that I'm not seeing?

    Don't mistake what I posted for bullet proof coffee, which is nonsense.

    OK, I edited my response pointing out where that was.

    Ask 23andMe, CYP1A2 SNP makes people a “fast coffee metabolizer”, so I some don't have any problem with up to about8 cups per day. There are other SNPs that maycome into play as well. Here’s a 2015 paper:

    Genome-wide meta-analysis identifiessix novel loci associated with habitual coffee consumption

    The latest coffee babble in the medical press:MPT: Coffee: No Harm, No Foul If Only 4 Cups Daily
    — However, link seen between coffee drinking and fracture risk in women

    Analysis of more than 200 studies found that drinking three to four cups of coffee a day (400 mg/day) was associated with a reduced risk of all cause mortality…

    A research limitation was that much of the evidence was low quality and came from observational studies which may include residual confounding.
    The full meta-meta is in the BMJ (open access full-text):
    Coffee consumption and health: umbrella review of meta-analyses of multiple health outcomes
    Expect it to be included in even lower quality future meta-meta-metas.

    When I drink a lot of coffee to keep me awake, because of driving a long distance at night. Before bed I use a De-Caffeinate Sleep aid for caffeine removal, it does work you me. You can buy them through Amazon.
