Coffee drinking may lead to a longer life, study finds

However, the researchers stressed that the study only found an association with coffee and longevity and didn't prove that coffee leads to a longer life. The average age of participants was 57 years old, and 87 percent drank coffee.

But in the new study, the researchers found no link between having these variations and a person's risk of death over the study period.

Drawing information from the UK's Biobank data resource, which holds information on around nine million people, researchers were also able to profile British java drinkers.

Of course with so many coffee drinkers across the world, such research tends to make headlines in popular media, which has been aswirl in coffee-and-health-related headlines lately for two reasons: 1) There is in reality more research coming out about the potential health benefits of coffee and its relationship to mortality; and 2) The recent California Proposition 65 ruling caused a significant backlash from the coffee industry and even the public health community, making headlines throughout the nation.

From a consumer perspective, it's a win-win for coffee drinkers, even for those who may prefer decaf for all or part of the day due to caffeine sensitivity. The study results showed coffee drinkers had a lower risk of death overall, just as many other studies have found.

Drink up, coffee fiends.

"During the next decade, 14,225 participants died, mostly of cancer or heart disease", the AP reported.

Their build-up play was sloppy, with the best effort falling to Remo Freuler with a late header that was saved by Robin Olsen . Svensson may return to the bench for the quarterfinal as Sebastian Larsson will be returning from suspension.

A 10-year study of 86,000 female nurses showed a reduced risk of suicide in coffee drinkers.

So the study seems to suggest you can get much the same health benefits from cheap supermarket coffee as from a fancy cup of artisanal terroir coffee.

"It doesn't even really explain why or how, you don't know whether it's the caffeine or things people put in the coffee". However, earlier studies focused primarily on health risks after the presence of such diseases were found.

People who drank coffee, no matter how much or what kind they drank, were less likely to die over that 10-year period than non-coffee drinkers, they reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association's JAMA Internal Medicine. The study looked at some common gene variations that help determine whether someone metabolizes caffeine quickly or slowly, but didn't find any difference in health risk.

'These findings suggest the importance of non-caffeine constituents in the coffee-mortality association and provide further reassurance that coffee drinking can be a part of a healthy diet'.

"But here's a situation where there was always some feeling of, 'Oh, can't be - I enjoy it too much, it can't be good for me.' And now we're finding out that it's good".
