Coffee Drinking Linked To Longer Life

Posted July 12, 2017

While the studies can't confirm that coffee lowers the risk of dying, for the most part they found no indication that drinking coffee might hasten death.

For the larger of the two new studies, researchers analyzed data from a nutrition study that tracked more than 520,000 people from 10 European countries for an average of 16.4 years. And the more java, the better: People who had up to three cups a day were 18 percent less likely to perish from those conditions, according to the study.

In addition, people consuming two to three cups a day reduce their chances of death by 18 percent.

The European study, on the other hand, showed an inverse association between drinking coffee and liver disease, suicide in men, cancer in women, digestive diseases and circulatory diseases.

Contrary to people who believe coffee can cause health problems, coffee drinkers may actually live longer according to a recent study.

Leader of the USA study, Dr Veronica Setiawan also told the Daily Mail UK that it is the antioxidants and phenolic compounds that play an important role in cancer prevention. For the sake of this study, "moderate" consumption is presumed to be approximately 3 cups of coffee per day.

Despite coffee's health benefits, the researchers warned that drinking hot coffee or beverages can still cause cancer in the esophagus.

The first study, conducted in 10 European countries and the largest ever of its kind, found that compared to non-coffee drinkers, those who consume the most coffee have a significantly lower risk for death.

The scientists conducted a study with the participation of about 190,000 volunteers - whites, blacks, Americans of Japanese origin, and the Hispanics.

He said that drinking more than 400 milligrams of caffeine a day - equivalent to four to five cups of coffee - can cause symptoms such as dizziness and a spike in heart rate.

Drinking three cups of coffee a day could help you live longer, two major scientific studies have shown.

"Recommending coffee intake to reduce mortality or prevent chronic disease would be premature", an accompanying editorial of the journal wrote. She's an associate professor of preventive medicine at the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine. Death eventually gets coffee drinkers too, but there appears to be an association between regular cups of joe and delaying that meeting with the creepy dude holding a scythe. It found advantages to longevity if the coffee was caffeinated or decaffeinated.

Their diets were assessed using questionnaires and interviews, with the highest level of coffee consumption (by volume) reported in Denmark (900 mL per day) and lowest in Italy (approximately 92 mL per day). The researchers noticed the same effects for all methods of preparation, so you should opt for whichever method is going to increase your likelihood of drinking coffee, whether you can only stand cappuccinos or only afford drip coffee. "So perhaps we should relax and enjoy it".

A team of researchers from the National Cancer Institute, USC and the University of Hawaii teamed up to research the habits of people who drink coffee.
