According to this new study coffee is associated with a lower risk of death in the next 10 years.
“Our findings suggest that drinking four cups of coffee each day can be part of a healthy diet in healthy people,” said researcher Dr. Adela Navarro, a cardiologist at Hospital de Navarra in Pamplona, Spain.
“Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages around the world,” Navarro said in a society news release. “Previous studies have suggested that drinking coffee might be inversely associated with all-cause mortality but this has not been investigated in a Mediterranean country.”
Drinking more cups of coffee everyday might become the link to a more longer life.
“We found an inverse association between drinking coffee and the risk of all-cause mortality, particularly in people aged 45 years and above. This may be due to a stronger protective association among older participants,” Navarro said.
The findings were presented Sunday at the European Society of Cardiology Congress, in Barcelona.
