Study shows 4 cups of coffee might have major health benefits

ATLANTA — If you’re a hardcore coffee lover, you no longer have to call your love of caffeine a vice.

Experts say you don’t have to give up your cup of joe habit to be healthy.

A study found there are health benefits in drinking three or even four cups a day.

The survey examined more than 200 previous studies on coffee drinkers and found coffee lovers had lower risks of heart disease, liver disease, Parkinson’s disease, several forms of cancer, Type 2 diabetes and more.

Doctors warn the research doesn’t mean you should pick up the habit but if you’re already drinking a lot of coffee, you don’t necessarily need to stop.
