A Cup of Coffee A Day Keeps the Doctor Away

Coffee lovers rejoice! Your favourite hot cuppa can increase your longevity

Compared with non-coffee drinkers, men who drank three or more cups had an 18 per cent reduced risk of death.

These findings do not mean that people should rush to drink litres of coffee everyday.

"Due to the limitations of observational research, we are not at the stage of recommending people to drink more or less coffee". Intake that exceeds 400 mg puts you at a higher risk for panic attacks, heart problems, and insomnia. Decaffeinated coffee had a beneficial effect, but it was less marked.

Both studies are published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Until more is known, he, too, said the findings at least suggest coffee isn't detrimental to people's health. "Many of these have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties". Researches have been conducted by various organizations to justify their theories.

Can't make it through the day without that caffeine fix first thing?

"We can not say drinking coffee will prolong your life, but we see an association", Veronica W. Setiawan, lead author of the one of the studies and an associate professor of preventive medicine at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, said in a statement. "We can't tell from this particular study". After studying over 185,000 African-Americans, Native Americans, Hawaiians, Japanese-Americans, Latinos, and whites, the research found that coffee increases longevity across various races.

The studies also show antioxidants found in coffee have a protective effect on the body. "They have very different dietary habits and different susceptibilities - and we still find similar patterns", Setiawan said. "There's something going on in coffee". The study started with 520,000 people from ten European countries and followed up over the course of 16 years.

Research teams from the National Cancer Institute, University of Southern California, and University of Hawaii studied the coffee drinking habits of more than 180,000 Americans as part of the Multiethnic Cohort Study, which has been observing numerous study's participants since 1993. This was particularly true for diseases of the digestive tract, but also for circulatory diseases.

After lifestyle factors were accounted for the researchers found that those that consumed the most coffee had a lower risk for all causes of death. The researchers also discovered a link between higher coffee consumption and lower risk of early death by lung cancer in men. Drinking two to three cups of coffee reduced the chances of death by 18 per cent.

But coffee may carry risks for some people, and pregnant woman and children are urged to avoid caffeine, which can be fatal in high doses. However, Gunter added that it would be a surprise for him if coffee was not the reason for lowered risk of death.

So for now, some experts say, instead of putting all your bets on coffee being good for you, you could instead do something that has been proven to extend life - take a brisk, 20-minute walk to the nearest coffee shop - whether you order a cup or not.

Coffee is one of the most widespread drinks in the world. The remaining 21% of the participants had an irregular habit of coffee consumption.

Two new studies reveal that drinking coffee can have long term health benefits, and the more cups the better. For her, two cups daily is enough. 25% of them drank 2 to 3 cups daily and 7% drank four and more cups in a day.
