STUDY: Coffee Drinkers Live Longer

Coffee drinkers live longer than non-coffee drinkers.

Scientists are constantly studying coffee. After a report suggesting that black coffee means you have psychopathic tendencies, scientists are looking at coffee again to see how it impacts your life and apparently it does the body good. Apparently, the more coffee you drink, the longer you will live. The study, published in the journal Circulation, suggests those who drink up to five cups of coffee a day may be less likely to die too early. According to LiveScience, those people were found to have a lesser chance of dying over a 30-year period from heart disease, type 2 diabetes, neurological diseases and suicide.
The research showed that people in the study who drank coffee moderately lived slightly longer, and had a reduced risk of death from some chronic diseases, compared with the people who didn’t drink coffee, said Dr. Frank B. Hu, a professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and a co-author of the study. Other research has established links between coffee drinking and a reduced risk of early mortality, but this new study was one of the largest to show these associations, he said.
In addition, the key to living longer is not caffeine. Both regular and decaf coffee drinkers will experience the same benefits from drinking coffee, which may be due to antioxidants, magnesium and other nutrients that are known to help regulate blood sugar, reduce inflammation, and even symptoms resulting from Parkinson's disease. While coffee is not a miracle drug that will instantly make everything better. For example, the study found that smoking ruined the benefits of drinking coffee. A similar study was done in 2012 and found the same correlation. So have another cup of Starbucks Mocha Pumpkin Spice latte, your body may just need it!
