Coffee Drinkers Have A Lower Risk Of Dying
Good News Coffee Lovers: Coffee may have health benefits
Coffee lovers, here’s another reason to rejoice: Who knew that a cup of coffee could actually extend your life expectancy? More than half of the American adult population drink coffee each day, and they are often criticized and told of the negative risks that sipping java can cause, linking the brew to cancer and heart disease. However, according to a research team led by Dr. Neal Freedman of NIH’s National Cancer Institute (NCI), adults who drink coffee—either caffeinated or decaffeinated—may in fact have a lower risk of death than the non-coffee drinkers. Shocking!
“We found coffee consumption to be associated with lower risk of death overall, and of death from a number of different causes,” said Freedman who also added that, “although we cannot infer a causal relationship between coffee drinking and lower risk of death, we believe these results do provide some reassurance that coffee drinking does not adversely affect health.” Additionally, several studies have also concluded that coffee reduces the risk of medical conditions, including stroke, depression, dementia and other cancers. This news certainly doesn’t mean that consuming 4 and 5 cups a day is healthy, like everything, there should be a good balance. Brew responsibly!
