Higher Coffee Consumption Is Linked with Lower Risk of Death for Many

Higher Coffee Consumption Is Linked with Lower Risk of Death for Many

A new study released by the European Society of Cardiology Congress found that higher coffee consumption is linked with a lower risk of death. That does not mean just one cup of coffee a day. Up to 4 cups of coffee a day can reduce your chances of an early death. Previous studies have shown that high coffee consumption may be linked with a higher risk of mortality, however this research has never been conducted in a Mediterranean country. Researchers thought that the risks or benefits of coffee consumption may be different  for those who consume a Mediterranean diet and lifestyle.

 

The study followed 20,000 patients whose average age was 37.7 years old. The participants were researched and studied for over the course of ten years. The results of the study found that participants who drank four or more cups of coffee a day had a 64% lower risk of death than those who never or almost never drank coffee. For participants over the age of 45, drinking two additional cups of coffee a day reduced their risk of death by 30%. Another study found that drinking coffee contributed to a lower risk of death due to heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.

 

In conclusion, drinking 4 cups of coffee today as a part of a healthy diet can contribute to that healthy diet. Therefore, if you are following a healthy diet and lifestyle, don’t worry about cutting down on the coffee, consider drinking more instead. However, this study did not show that drinking coffee can benefit people with unhealthy diets.
