Another Cup? More Coffee Could Be Linked to Longer Life Span

About one-third of those surveyed said they drank between two and three cups of coffee each day, and 10,000 of them drank eight or more cups each day.

The researchers used data from the UK Biobank study, through which a large group of UK adults completed health questionnaires, underwent physical examinations and provided biological samples.

"Our study provides further evidence that coffee drinking can be part of a healthy diet and offers reassurance to coffee drinkers", Loftfield said.

"Teas also have health benefits, so if you do not drink coffee, tea is a great alternative", Heller said.

Dr Loftfield, of the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, said: "Coffee drinking was inversely associated with mortality, including among those drinking eight or more cups per day and those with genetic mutations indicating slower or faster caffeine metabolism".

A population-based study that included people ages 38 to 73 drew an association between coffee and health, meaning that coffee might not be the cause of longevity, just a coincidental factor.

In a research study of almost 500,000 adults in Britain, those who consumed instant, ground and decaf coffee - even as much as 8 cups daily - had a slightly lower risk of death over 10 years than those who did not.

Coffee lovers may not have to feel that familiar pang of guilt when pouring themselves yet another cup of joe for the day.

Also backing up this study's claims are previous studies - like the 2017 research covering more than 700,000 people that also found a link between coffee and a longer life.

Because these health benefits were found both in people who metabolize coffee differently and those who drank decaf brew, researchers think something other than caffeine may be at play.

Moreover, to get the benefit, it didn't matter whether someone metabolized caffeine slowly or quickly. It includes data from over half a million people in the United Kingdom. In other words, a higher percentage of the non-coffee drinkers died.

We're not saying you should drink a giant cup of scalding coffee after a workout instead of water or gatorade, but you can't put all the dehydration blame on your morning grande latte.

"It would be good to tell them there's something in the beans that are beneficial for their health", he said.

But, "drinking coffee is not a miracle in a cup, and is unlikely to prevent the consequences of an unhealthy lifestyle, such as the typical Western diet or smoking tobacco", Heller noted.

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.
