Not only is coffee not bad for you, you should consider drinking more coffee!
The panel says that three to five cups of coffee per day is perfectly fine - It also said that 400 mg of caffeine, from 5 cups of coffee is tied to several health benefits, including a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
"We saw that coffee has a lot of health benefits, specifically when you're drinking more than a couple cups per day."
That's great news for coffee drinkers around Australia, where the average consumption is only one or two cups per day among coffee lovers. The Netherlands is the closest country to come to the magical 5 cups of coffee per day at 4 1/2 cups.
