People who regularly drink coffee don't have an increased risk of diseases like heart disease and cancer, a new study has said. These people also have a lower risk of Type 2 diabetes compared to sporadic drinkers or non-drinkers, Huffington Post reported.

"Our results suggest that coffee consumption is not harmful for healthy adults in respect of risk of major chronic disease," said study researcher Anna Floegel, an epidemiologist at the German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbruecke.

The study included 42,659 people who participated in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)-Germany study.

The researchers had the study participants record how frequently they ate the different foods in their diets (including coffee), and they also collected information on whether the study participants had any chronic diseases.

After almost nine years, the researchers found that the people who drank four or more cups of coffee a day were at no higher risk for chronic disease, compared with those who drank less than a cup of coffee a day, according to the study.

The study appeared in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
