KEY POINTS

  • In a study of around half-a-million British adults, coffee drinkers were found to have a slightly lower risk of death over a 10-year follow-up period than non-coffee drinkers.
  • The apparent longevity boost comes as yet another piece of good news for coffee lovers, with health benefits recorded in drinkers of instant, ground and decaffeinated coffee.
  • Late last year, researchers at the University of Southampton in the U.K. found people who drink three or four cups of coffee every day could significantly reduce their chances of early death.

“Drinking coffee could boost your chances of a longer life, research shows, even for those who consume as many as eight cups a day.

In a study of around half-a-million British adults, coffee drinkers were found to have a slightly lower risk of death over a 10-year follow-up period than non-coffee drinkers.

. . . Overall, coffee drinkers were found to be about 10 percent to 15 percent less likely to die than non-coffee drinkers during a decade of follow-up checks. The differences recorded regarding the amount of coffee consumed and genetic variations were minimal.

Other studies have claimed substances in coffee might reduce inflammation and improve how the body uses insulin, which could decrease the likelihood of developing diabetes. . . “

  1. No Coffee for me except when I go to my usual cafe here in Bowral. Coffee gives me intestinal thunder and unless i am within a few meters of a toilet, it could have calamitous consequences.
    I prefer tea.

  2. That seems like A LOT of coffee to drink in a day! 😮
    I love the look and smell of coffee…but don’t drink it these days. I prefer water or decaf teas. 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

    1. I find myself drinking quite a lot of coffee these days, but also tea. Sometimes I do drink quite a lot of water too! 🙂 HUGS, Uta 🙂
