Drinking Coffee May Help You Live Longer, Study Says

Drinking Coffee May Help You Live Longer, Study Says

Nearly one-third of those in the study drank two or three cups of coffee daily, and 10,000 hardcore types guzzled at least eight cups daily.

The team at the National Cancer Institute used data from people taking part in a large genetic study in Britain called the U.K. Biobank.

As in previous studies, coffee drinkers were more likely than abstainers to drink alcohol and smoke, but the researchers took those factors into account, and coffee drinking seemed to cancel them out. There is, it seems, nothing called too much coffee. nearly.

Because some people's genetics make them slower to metabolize caffeine, the researchers wanted to see if that made coffee consumption riskier for these individuals.

Of course with so many coffee drinkers across the world, such research tends to make headlines in popular media, which has been aswirl in coffee-and-health-related headlines lately for two reasons: 1) There is in reality more research coming out about the potential health benefits of coffee and its relationship to mortality; and 2) The recent California Proposition 65 ruling caused a significant backlash from the coffee industry and even the public health community, making headlines throughout the nation.

Amla is loaded with vitamin C that is known to build your body's defence mechanisms against diseases and infections. The average age of participants was 57 years old, and 87 percent drank coffee. But non-coffee drinkers were more likely to have died than coffee-drinkers. New research shows it may boost chances for a longer life, even for those who down at least eight cups daily. And the risk of death during the follow-up period was only slightly higher for people drinking around 4 cups of coffee a day compared with those who drank more than 8, he told Live Science. Drinking coffee is associated with a lower risk of early death - virtually regardless of how much you drink and whether or not it's caffeinated, concludes a paper published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine. Researchers noticed an inverse association between drinking coffee and the risk of death, regardless of whether individuals metabolized it quickly or slowly. While the study represents an median view of coffee drinking habits, it is encouraging reading for lovers of the toasted bean.

We're not saying you should drink a giant cup of scalding coffee after a workout instead of water or gatorade, but you can't put all the dehydration blame on your morning grande latte. But those studies only looked at coffee drinking after disease occurrence and did not examine overall mortality risk, as the current paper did, Loftfield said. It includes data from over half a million people in the United Kingdom.

Is coffee good or bad?

Whatever it is, there have been multiple studies that point to coffee's health benefits.

People should also be aware that some people have a physical sensitivity to coffee.
