People who drink coffee live longer, say studies

Study confirms coffee drinking associated with longer life

Study confirms coffee drinking associated with longer life

The first study, led by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and Imperial College London, examined more than half a million people across 10 countries in Europe.

Similar results were reported by American scientists who conducted a separate investigation, recruiting 185,855 participants from different ethnic backgrounds.

The research found that coffee reduces the risk of developing liver disease as well as limits the chances of digestive tract and circulatory diseases.

And heavy consumers of decaf or regular coffee - those who drink two to three cups each day - had an 18% reduced death toll from those illnesses. These study's findings are compatible with previous ones that had looked into majority white populations, according to Veronica Wendy Setiawan, associate professor of preventative medicine at USC's Keck School of Medicine, who led the study on nonwhite populations. Coffee won't magically fix all your health issues and help you to live forever, but there's a chance it may help your body to keep ticking on.

Setiawan said: "coffee contains a lot of antioxidants and phenolic compounds that play an important role in cancer prevention". For one thing, the researchers couldn't explain why coffee give these perceived benefits, nor could a causal relationship be identified.

Further research is needed but for now researchers are focused on what compounds are to credit for the health benefits of coffee.

But experts warn that the two studies, both published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, do not show that drinking coffee was behind the overall lower risk, pointing out that it could be that coffee drinkers are healthier in various ways or that those who are unwell drink less coffee.

Plus, Guallar said, if people load their coffee with cream and sugar, that adds calories and unhealthy fats.

We're taking this as permission to pour a full-strength coffee nightcap.

"That's because the size of the potential protective effect of coffee, in these studies, is not very large; because we can't be sure what is causing what; and because, even if coffee drinking is somehow directly improving people's health on average, neither study throws much light on exactly how it might do that".

Coffee is one of the most widespread drinks in the world.

The studies involved more than 700,000 people and found that the more coffee individuals consumed, the less likely they were to die an early death from a number of diseases including cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

Scientists in Europe and the United States have uncovered the clearest evidence yet that drinking coffee reduces the risk of death.

All that the researchers did was look at several hundred thousand coffee drinkers, and non-coffee drinkers, over a period of 16 years, and record who died at which age from which cause.

Among these insights was evidence that coffee drinkers may have healthier livers and better glucose control, something the researchers uncovered by analyzing metabolic biomarkers in a subset of 14,000 people.

If you are one of those people who just has to have their cup of coffee in the morning in order to function, you just might think that coffee is a gift that came from heaven to keep you awake and going. 25% of them drank 2 to 3 cups daily and 7% drank four and more cups in a day.
