After all the negative Nellies clamoring about the ill-effects of coffee, a hearty news comes our way: Coffee can help you live longer! No, this is not a claim by coffee addicts in fact these are conclusions by two separate studies! Thus, the magic of Science has proven that a greater consumption of coffee could result in the drinker living a longer life.
One of the two is a study published in Annals of Internal Medicine. The study explores the relation between coffee consumption and mortality. The study was conducted in 521,330 people scattered around 10 European countries. The scientists observed the liver function and metabolic health in relation to coffee consumption. After a period of time, it was noticed that subjects that had been consuming coffee had a lower mortality rate. Finally, the study mentions that drinking coffee is directly related to reduced risk of dying from various causes and the relationship of coffee and mortality did not vary by the country.
The second study, again published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, tried a more inclusive approach and studied non-white sections of the population. This study included 185,855 people with diverse background and ethnicities like Native Hawaiians, African Americans, Latinos, and Japanese Americans. This study declared that the result is the same as the first study irrespective of the race of the person participating in the study. Thus, coffee increases longevity in general despite varied race, lifestyle, and dietary preferences. Interestingly, the study claimed that those who drank 2-4 cups of coffee in a day had 18% lower risk of dying than those who did not consume the beverage.
