Drinking at least three cups of coffee daily is associated with a 50 percent reduction in the risk of death among people coinfected with HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV). This finding derives from a five-year study that is the first to examine the relationship between coffee consumption and death from any cause in HIV/HCV-coinfected individuals and suggests that coffee likely benefits the health of those with HIV and HCV to a much greater degree than the general population.

Numerous previous studies in people with hep C have laid the groundwork for this finding. Research has also identified coffee’s potential benefits related to several other health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes. In the general population, three or more cups per day is associated with a 14 percent reduction in the risk of death, likely because of chemicals called polyphenols that reduce harmful inflammation and protect the liver.
