Coffee drinking connected to lower risk of death, study finds

The protective effects applied to all types of coffee including ground instant and decaffeinated
Conducted over a decade, the study found that coffee drinkers lived longer on average than those who abstained - whether they drank instant, ground, or decaf.
From that huge sample size, the study found that coffee drinking had a pronounced inverse association with mortality, meaning fewer participants who regularly consumed coffee died during the study period. For the current study, the researchers analyzed information provided by about 500,000 people, who answered questions about their coffee consumption, smoking and drinking habits, health history and more. Those who drank around 6 to 7 cups of coffee per day had around a 16 percent lower risk of death, the study found.
Drinking coffee could cut the risk of death even in those who struggle to metabolize caffeine, scientists believe.
"Coffee makes you happy, it gives you something to look forward to in the morning, " said Taylor, a sound engineer from Las Vegas.
But coffee drinkers in the study didn't have higher risks than non-drinkers of dying from heart disease and other blood pressure-related causes.
Will Theresa May’s ‘third way’ customs plan work?
It therefore seems likely that any third way will look more like the customs partnership than the max-fac model. PA Wire/PA Images Prime Minister Theresa May listens to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the House of Commons.
Another large study of 500,000 people in Europe showed similar results to the recent United Kingdom research: men who drank three cups of coffee per day were 12% less likely to die over a 16-year period than coffee abstainers, and women who drank that much coffee were 7% less likely to die.
Your habit of guzzling coffee throughout the day could be the secret to a longer life.
"Although these findings may reassure coffee drinkers, these results are from an observational study and should be interpreted cautiously", said lead study author Erikka Loftfield, a research fellow at the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
Moreover, to get the benefit, it didn't matter whether someone metabolized caffeine slowly or quickly.
The research didn't include whether participants drank coffee black or with cream and sugar.
"Further research is needed to better understand the potential biological mechanisms underlying the observed associations of coffee with various health outcomes", Dr. Loftfield acknowledged.
A new study provides more good news for coffee lovers.
Walter Willett from the Harvard School of Public Health reveals in 2015 that the coffee bean is actually packed with nutrients and phyto-chemicals such as lignans, quinides, and magnesium.
Due in part to these compounds, people who follow a more plant-based approach to eating have lower rates of chronic diseases, such as certain cancers, obesity, diabetes, dementia, heart disease and depression, she added. 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".
And the "coffee gene" you may have heard of didn't affect things either.
