The new study found that heaviest drinkers of coffee have a longer life to live that means they have the low chances to die as compared to those people who don’t drink coffee.
It is a good news for coffee drinkers. The researchers found that results show that those people who drink a cup of coffee per day give many benefits to their health such as longevity boost.
The study reported Monday in the Journal of the American Medical Association’s JAMA Internal Medicine and it involves around half-million people in England, Scotland and Wales. The people who were participated aged from 38 to 73. The researchers looked, participants, who drank coffee or not, how much and what type of coffee they consume.
The researcher found that coffee drinkers were at lower risk to die over a 10-year period than non-coffee drinkers.
Erikka Loftfield, a research fellow at the National Cancer Institute, says during the decade-long study, “We found that people who drank two to three cups per day had about a 12 per cent lower risk of death compared to non-coffee drinkers.”
Lotfield’s team wrote, “Coffee drinkers, compared with non–coffee drinkers, were more likely to be male, white, former smokers, and drink alcohol.” The team added, “Participants drinking four or more cups per day, compared with those drinking less coffee and nondrinkers, were more likely to drink instant coffee and be current smokers, whereas participants drinking one to three cups per day were older, more likely to have a university degree, and more likely to report ‘excellent’ health.”
Around 14,000 people died over 10 years in which non-coffee drinkers were more chances to die than those people who drink coffee daily.
The researchers wrote, “There has been concern about the health effects of heavy coffee drinking, particularly in participants with common genetic polymorphisms that affect caffeine metabolism.”
