Can Coffee Prevent Cancer and Other Diseases?

By    |   Tuesday, 06 Aug 2013 10:57 AM

Question: How much coffee is too much? I've read articles that say coffee can help prevent cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, and the more you drink the better.
 
Dr. Hibberd's answer:
 
Coffee's health benefits are few and far between compared with green tea. The coffee intake and risk depends predominately upon the degree of caffeine intake, and health benefits reduce in proportion to the increasing caffeine intake.
 
There is limited evidence to support claims that coffee reduces incidence of cancer, diabetes, or heart disease in coffee drinkers.
