Coffee Tied To Lower Risk of Dying Prematurely
Written by: Janet Early
Brew. Java. Joe.
We have many names for our coffee.
You’ve probably heard just as many health claims about the American staple, suggesting that it’s healthy, deadly, okay in moderate amounts or will keep you up all night. The mixed findings are confusing, to say the least.
A new study is shedding some clarity on the matter, claiming that regular coffee intake could be tied to an increased life span.
The study is based on a sample of more than 200,000 doctors and nurses who were examined physically and behaviorally throughout a period of 30 years.
The above findings (which are based on nonsmoking individuals) are true whether the coffee is caffeinated or decaf.
According to this study, coffee drinking is associated with a lower risk of death from heart disease, stroke, diabetes, neurological diseases and suicide, although it does not affect risk of death from cancer.
While this study seems to be good news for coffee drinkers, it’s important to note that it’s not clear whether the relationship is causal or not. In other words, it’s not obvious whether the lower risk of premature death is tied specifically to coffee or is due to other unknown factors.
No matter the case, hopefully this finding gives you even more of a friendly energy boost than your daily cup of joe can!
