Drinking More Coffee May Help People Live Longer

Coffee is one of the most commonly consumed beverages around the world. A recent study suggests that drinking higher amounts of coffee may be associated with a lower risk of death.


Participants in the study included 19,896 people who lived in the Mediterranean region. The average age of enrollment was 37.7 years and there was a 10-year follow-up period for all participants. The researchers used semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaires in order to determine coffee consumption, lifestyle, sociodemographic characteristics, body measurements, and any pre-existing health conditions. During the study period, 335 participants died.


After examining the data, the researchers determined that people who drank at least four cups of coffee per day had a 65% lower risk of all-cause mortality than those who never or almost never drank coffee. They also found that for participants who were 45 years old or older, drinking two more cups of coffee per day was associated with a 30% lower risk of all-cause death during the follow-up period.


Researchers from the Hospital de Navarra in Spain led the study. It was published on August 29, 2017 in European Heart Journal.


The health benefits associated with coffee are generally attributed to its polyphenol content. Previous studies have linked polyphenol intake with a variety of health benefits, including helping with weight management, and reducing inflammation.
