Can drinking coffee extend your life?

Can drinking coffee extend your life?

Research recently published by the American College of Physicians reports that if you are drinking regular coffee, expresso, latte or decaffeinated coffee you are reducing your chances of stroke, heart disease and liver disease. And the research indicates that three cups reduces your risk even more than one cup.

 

This was a 16 year study of 450,000 participants in 10 European countries. The results claim that 3 cups a day of coffee will lower you risk of these disease by 18% in men and 8% in women. Researchers also discovered that coffee drinking study participants had healthier levels of liver enzymes and glucose levels.

 

In separate studies the group reported that drinking one cup of coffee per day lowered the risk of death by 12% and that if you increases your consumption to 2 or 3 cups that risk was lowered by 18%.

 

The second study showed reduced occurrence of stroke, heart disease, cancer, respiratory disease, diabetes, and kidney disease. The study did not report of factors that could be particular to coffee drinkers such as exercise and fat and sugar consumption. The study also did not report on the negative effects of adding sugar, cream or milk substitutes to the coffee.

 

The largest downside to drinking coffee appears to be the negative effect from caffeine.
