Roundtable Report Finds Coffee May Contribute to Longevity

Coffee may do more than just wake you up in the morning. A recent report suggests that drinking coffee may lower the risk of death by as much as 17%.


For their roundtable report, researchers referenced a meta-analysis that found a link between coffee consumption and a 17% reduction in risk of all-cause mortality. They also referenced a study by Imperial College London and the International Agency for Research on Cancer that found that people who consumed the most coffee had a lower risk of all-cause death.


They also included a US study that compared drinking one cup of coffee per day to not drinking coffee at all. In that study, the coffee drinkers were 12% less likely to die than those who didn’t drink coffee.


While the roundtable was unable to draw a firm conclusion on the exact mechanisms of coffee, they did agree that there are good indicators that coffee contributes in some way to longevity.


The roundtable report was compiled by the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee. The experts included professors, researchers, and doctors from around the world.
