The research, which extracted evidences from over 200 past studies on the matter, also discovered that drinking coffee was linked to lower risks of diabetes, liver disease, some cancers, and even dementia.

She said: "It looks like good news for regular coffee drinkers".

"Factors such as age, whether people smoked or not and how much exercise they took could all have had an effect", he said.

Increasing consumption to above that amount was not associated with harm, but the beneficial effects were less pronounced. They also urge coffee drinkers to stick to "healthy coffees", so your Venti Iced Toffee Nut Latte with Hazelnuts and White Chocolate Mocha Sauce might be off the menu.
