It seems like every week a new report or study is published boasting benefits of coffee, or claiming adverse effects. The latest report published is gaining a lot of attention due to who is making the statements and what they are saying.
According to a new report from a government advisory committee to the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services states an individual can consume up to 5 cups of coffee a day (400 milligrams of caffeine) without detrimental effects. Moderate coffee consumption was not associated with health risks according to the report. In fact it notes coffee may have some health benefits like “ reducing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.”
This report will help shape the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which will be finalized by the end of this year. ABC News reports “this is first time caffeine has been mentioned in the advisory report.” It will be interesting to see if the 2015 Dietary Guidelines will follow this panel’s recommendations.
