If you can't think about going through your day without your morning coffee, you might be on to something that'll keep you alive and caffeinated for years to come. The news is great for Americans who average just under three cups of coffee a day, according to a 2015 survey. Previously, studies have had linked regular coffee consumption (over 4 cups a day) with a reduced risk of ailments like liver cancer and prostate cancer. The study tracked 19,986 people over an average period of 10 years. "There is not enough evidence that you should drink more coffee for the sake of longer life expectancy", Dr. Ming Ding, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health was quoted on Harvard's online publication. Sounds like a good deal.
The European Society of Cardiology in Barcelona has found the risk of early death was cut by almost two-thirds among those who drank four cups of coffee every day.
Researchers in Spain have concluded that higher coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of death, suggesting that four cups of coffee per day can be part of a healthy diet, especially among people age 45 and above.
Coffee contains a number of compounds including caffeine, diterpenes and antioxidants, and scientists believe some of these have a protective impact on the body.
A new large-scale study has found for the first time that Mediterranean coffee drinkers benefit from a lower risk of death.
Every extra two cups, were associated with a 22% drop in mortality - rising to 30% among older patients in the study. The reason behind this questionnaire is to gain the information about the drinking of coffee, routine, and socio demographic characteristics, previous health conditions, and anthropometric measurements.
The researchers examined whether sex, age or adherence to the Mediterranean diet had any influence on the association between baseline coffee consumption and mortality, finding a "significant interaction" between coffee consumption and age.
Avkiran added that the best way to minimise the risk of cardiovascular disease and premature death is to focus on an "overall healthy lifestyle", which includes eating well, staying active and avoiding harmful habits like smoking.
