3 Cups Of Coffee A Day ‘Could Help You Live Longer’
The health benefits of coffee are often in the news, lauded for being able to boost energy levels, helping you burn fat, containing lots of vitamins like B2, B5 and B3, and so on… and now new research has revealed that people who drink about three cups a day might actually live longer than people who don’t drink it at all.
Conducted by Imperial College London and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the study found that higher levels of coffee consumption are in fact linked to a reduced risk of death from all causes – but especially digestive tract and circulatory conditions.
Interestingly, it was also found that decaffeinated coffee had similar effects – although this could also be down to the fact that those who like their decaf may also have been drinking caffeinated coffee as well throughout their lives.
“We found that drinking more coffee was associated with a more favourable liver function profile and immune response. This, along with the consistency of the results with other studies in the US and Japan gives us greater confidence that coffee may have beneficial health effects,” the IARC’s Dr Mark Gunter – lead author of the report – said.
Similar research was published in 2015 by Harvard T H Chan School of Public Health researchers, revealing that those who drink between three and five cups of coffee a day are less likely to die prematurely from illnesses like diabetes, Parkinson’s and cardiovascular disease – as well as suicide. Consumption wasn’t associated with cancer-related deaths, however.
