Does coffee have health benefits?

Answer by Donald Hensrud, M.D.

While earlier studies suggested that coffee might have negative effects, newer research indicates that it could actually offer health benefits.

Why the change?

It is challenging to isolate a single dietary factor and link it to a specific health condition because many other variables can play a role. For example, early research on coffee often did not account for the fact that heavy coffee drinkers also tended to smoke and lead a sedentary lifestyle.
When newer studies adjusted for these factors, they found a possible association between coffee consumption and reduced mortality.

Coffee might offer some protection against:

  • Parkinson's disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Liver diseases, including liver cancer
  • Heart attack and stroke

Coffee still has potential risks, mainly due to its high caffeine content. For example, it can temporarily raise blood pressure. Women who are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or breastfeeding need to be cautious about caffeine. High intake of boiled, unfiltered coffee has been associated with a slight increase in cholesterol levels.

The bottom line?

Your coffee habit is probably safe and might even have some benefits. However, if you experience side effects such as heartburn, nervousness, or insomnia, consider cutting back.
