STUDY: Regular or Decaf, Coffee Tied to Lower Mortality Risk

If you like to drink coffee, drink up! If you’re not a coffee drinker, then you need to consider if you should start. That’s the advice of a researcher at the University of Southern California, following a pair of new studies.

The overall conclusion: coffee prolongs life.

The first study of 186,000 people found those who drank a cup of coffee a day were 12% less likely to die from heart disease, cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease, stroke, diabetes, and, kidney disease than those who avoided java.  Those who drank two to three cups a day were 18% less likely to die of those causes.

A second study of 521,000 people from 10 European countries also found the top 25% of coffee drinkers had a reduced mortality risk of 12% for men and 7% for women. This suggests the manner in which coffee is prepared is not key to its benefits.

Nor is caffeine believed to be a factor: The lower mortality risk was seen in both studies regardless of whether people drank regular or decaf coffee.

So start (or continue) to grab that morning cup of goodness!
