Drinking Coffee May Help You Live Longer; Try These Foods Too!

How Much Coffee Is Good for You? Scientists Believe Drink Could Cut Risk of Death Even in Large Amounts Large study shows drinking coffee could extend your life

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.

Generally speaking, people who drank two to three cups of coffee every day had a lower risk of death than those who didn't.

A population-based study that included people ages 38 to 73 drew an association between coffee and health, meaning that coffee might not be the cause of longevity, just a coincidental factor. They concluded: "Coffee drinking was inversely associated with mortality, including among those drinking 8 or more cups per day and those with genetic polymorphisms indicating slower or faster caffeine metabolism".

For the current study, the researchers analysed information provided by about 5,00,000 people, who answered questions about their coffee consumption, smoking and drinking habits, health history and more.

"During the next decade, 14,225 participants died, mostly of cancer or heart disease", the AP reported.

"It's not clear exactly how drinking coffee might affect longevity". To reap the benefit, it doesn't matter if your coffee is decaf or instant or caffeinated, the researchers said.

The inverse association with mortality continued right up to eight cups of coffee a day, suggesting we shouldn't worry too much about overdoing our coffee consumption.

Christopher Gardner from the Stanford Prevention Research Center explains to NPR that coffee has some polyphenol-like, antioxidant-rich compounds.

Trump's Tweet on Deal With Saudi King Makes Oil Prices Plummet
Trump said the agreement was reached after a phone call with the Saudi King about oil production but mentioned no specifics. Most likely, the Saudis will opt for allowing prices to go higher rather than using up most of their spare capacity.

Feel free to pour yourself a cup of coffee before reading this - even if you've already had some today. While the study represents an median view of coffee drinking habits, it is encouraging reading for lovers of the toasted bean.

The results remained the same whether the coffee was ground, instant or decaffeinated.

People should also be aware that some people have a physical sensitivity to coffee. New research shows it may boost chances for a longer life, even for those who down at least eight cups daily. The study looked at some common gene variations that help determine whether someone metabolizes caffeine quickly or slowly, but didn't find any difference in health risk. But non-coffee drinkers were more likely to have died than coffee-drinkers.

So, get that extra cup of coffee.

Previous research has shown similar results.

Other studies have suggested that substances in coffee may reduce inflammation and improve how the body uses insulin, which can reduce the chance of developing diabetes.

Alice Lichenstein, a Tufts University nutrition researcher not linked to the study agrees, saying coffee has had negative health connotations which partially come from early literature suggesting coffee is not healthy for people.
