Drinking more coffee leads to a longer life

Drinking more coffee leads to a longer life, according to the latest research from University of Southern California. The coffee benefits just keep coming!

Coffee has shown much health benefits lately and is a huge part of the American lifestyle. According to Harvard research, 54 percent of Americans over the age of 18 drink coffee every day.

The beverage used to be very controversial, as some believed that it caused cancer. In June of last year, the World Health Organization (WHO) finally cleared it up once and for all that coffee does not cause cancer.

According to the new study, drinking coffee was associated with lower risk of death from heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and respiratory and kidney diseases.

People who drank a cup of coffee per day were 12 percent less likely to die when compared to those who didn’t drink coffee. For those who drank two to three cups per day, the risk was even lower.

Some interesting news is that the benefits applied to those who drank regular coffee and decaf, suggesting that the benefits were not limited to caffeine.

We cannot say drinking coffee will prolong your life, but we see an association,” Setiawan said. “If you like to drink coffee, drink up! If you’re not a coffee drinker, then you need to consider if you should start.”

Until now, few data have been available on the association between coffee consumption and mortality in nonwhites in the United States and elsewhere,” the study stated. “Such investigations are important because lifestyle patterns and disease risks can vary substantially across racial and ethnic backgrounds, and findings in one group may not necessarily apply to others.”

Since the association was seen in four different ethnicities, Setiawan said it is safe to say the results apply to other groups.

This study is the largest of its kind and includes minorities who have very different lifestyles,” Setiawan said. “Seeing a similar pattern across different populations gives stronger biological backing to the argument that coffee is good for you whether you are white, African-American, Latino or Asian.”

The study showing that drinking more coffee leads to a longer life was published in the Annals Of Internal Medicine.
