Drinking coffee could lower risk of death, study finds

Drinking six cups of coffee per day could cut your risks of dying early by 16%

This correlation was found in individuals who drank one cup of coffee to as many as eight per day.

A new study adds to growing evidence that drinking coffee may help you live longer.

Overall, coffee drinkers were about 10 to 15 per cent less likely to die than abstainers during a decade of follow-up. There is, it seems, nothing called too much coffee. nearly.

In other words while coffee drinking has some benefits especially in dealing with non-communicable diseases, your genes decide how well you metabolise caffeine.

The latest study entitled "Association of Coffee Drinking With Mortality by Genetic Variation in Caffeine Metabolism", gathered the data and information on the participants from the UK Biobank.

Amla is loaded with vitamin C that is known to build your body's defence mechanisms against diseases and infections.

From that huge sample size, the study found that coffee drinking had a pronounced inverse association with mortality, meaning fewer participants who regularly consumed coffee died during the study period.

It includes about half a million Brits who contributed their data and DNA to the United Kingdom biobank, and it finds an inverse relationship between people drinking up to eight or more cups per day and all-cause mortality. Some people are more sensitive to the effects of coffee.

That finding, combined with the apparent longevity-boosting effect of decaf coffee, suggests that caffeine isn't the life-lengthening mechanism at work in java, Loftfield said. But she said the results reinforce previous research and add additional reassurance for coffee drinkers.

Go ahead and have that cup of coffee, maybe even several more.

"We found that people who drank two to three cups per day had about a 12 percent lower risk of death compared to non-coffee drinkers" during the decade-long study, said Erikka Loftfield, a research fellow at the National Cancer Institute, as USA Today cited.

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. It covered almost half a million people, for a start, which is definitely to its credit.

"Coffee makes you happy, it gives you something to look forward to in the morning, " said Taylor, a sound engineer from Las Vegas.

"It would be good to tell them there's something in the beans that are beneficial for their health", he said. The same association was noted among the poor coffee metabolizers as well.

Other research has indicated that coffee drinkers are less likely to develop various forms of cancer, Type 2 diabetes, depression, Alzheimer's, dementia, liver cirrhosis, and heart disease.

You may have heard about the plant compounds called phytochemicals in coffee; such basic elements remain whether coffee is caffeinated or not, and whether you use a $5,000 espresso machine or you pour some hot water onto some powder.
