Coffee May Boost Chances For A Longer Life, Study Shows

Drinking coffee is associated with a lower risk of early death - virtually regardless of how much you drink and whether or not it's caffeinated, concludes a paper published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine.

In one study of nearly half a million people spread out across 10 European nations, researchers found that drinking three cups of coffee a day may help you live longer.

A new study links drinking coffee to living a longer life, according to new research.

"There has been concern about the health effects of heavy coffee drinking, particularly in participants with common genetic polymorphisms (differences) that affect caffeine metabolism", the researchers wrote.

Eisenberg, a cardiologist, says there isn't enough clinical information in the study to change your coffee drinking habits just yet.

As with all studies like this in which researchers observe a group of people over time, this study can't prove that coffee is the cause of the reduced risk of death.

"This study provides further evidence that coffee drinking can be part of a healthy diet and offers reassurance to coffee drinkers", wrote the National Cancer Institute (NCI) researchers, who analyzed data from almost 500,000 people through the U.K. Biobank, a large-scale genomic and health database.

Over 10 years of follow-up, more than 14,000 people died.

"Although these findings may reassure coffee drinkers, these results are from an observational study and should be interpreted cautiously", said lead study author Erikka Loftfield, a research fellow at the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Overall, those who drank one cup a day had an 8 percent lower risk of premature death.

This adds to a significant body of research indicating that coffee is connected to a long list of health benefits.

Moreover, to get the benefit, it didn't matter whether someone metabolized caffeine slowly or quickly. The findings were true among all coffee drinkers, even those who might be more sensitive to the effects of caffeine.

"But", she added, "I would also suggest if someone doesn't enjoy coffee, the data are not strong enough that they should start drinking coffee". It includes data from over half a million people in the United Kingdom.
