Drinking Coffee Cuts Your Risk of Dying by 16 Percent, Study Says

Erikka Loftfield, a research fellow at the National Cancer Institute and author of the study said that the main finding of the study was that people who drink two to three cups of coffee per day lowered their risk of death by around 12 percent when compared to people who did not drink coffee.

The researchers identified the half a million participants through the United Kingdom biobank, an initiative to enroll approximately 9.2 million people, with long-term follow-up, and create a large database of individual, genetic sequencing to further understand the role of DNA on disease and treatment.

That's because a massive new British study, examining the coffee habits and longevity of almost 500,000 adults, says there's an unmistakable across-the-board increase in longevity among people who drink lots of coffee.

In one study of nearly half a million people spread out across 10 European nations, researchers found that drinking three cups of coffee a day may help you live longer.

Years ago, health concerns about coffee included fears that it might raise risk of pancreatic cancer and other diseases. There is, it seems, nothing called too much coffee. nearly.

Coffee contains more than 1,000 biological compounds, including potassium and folic acid, known to have an effect on the body, Loftfield explained.

For many of us, a day hasn't properly started until we've had our first cup of coffee. New research, published in the JAMA Internal Medicine journal, adds to the growing list of studies that highlight the benefits of drinking coffee. A 2014 study found that there was zero evidence of dehydration with moderate daily coffee intake.

People should also be aware that some people have a physical sensitivity to coffee.

Enigma Cafe staff member Clarke Gardiner said coffee for him was "the essence of energy to wake up in the morning", drinking multiple coffees every day at work - including at night time.

"These investigators looked at a very large sample size and what they concluded was actually the coffee was associated with better health outcomes", she said. Over the course of the 10-year study, a little more than 14,000 people died. Differences by amount of coffee consumed and genetic variations were minimal.

Previous studies have found coffee drinkers have a 15 percent lower risk of death and are less likely to die from respiratory disease, stroke, injuries and accidents, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. These polymorphisms were responsible for persons being slow metabolizers of caffeine. Additionally, it took into account a wide range of drinking habits, from no caffeine up to eight cups of coffee per day, while also exploring associations with decaf and instant coffee.

Adding toppings to coffee like cream, sugar and whipped cream can also vastly increase calories, and possibly negate it's positive effects.
