Four Cups Coffee a Day Could Lower Death Risk

Drinking four coffees a day cuts the risk of early death by two-thirds, research suggests

Coffee contains a number of compounds which interact with the body including caffeine diterpenes and antioxidants and scientists believe some of these have a protective impact 

Researchers in Spain followed a cohort of almost 20,000 for a decade; according to their findings, participants who consumed two cups of coffee per day were 22 percent less likely to die than people who never drank coffee. It was found that those who drank coffee regularly had mortality rates nearly two-thirds lower than non-drinkers. 'I think it's the polyphenols (in coffee), they have an anti-inflammatory effect.' The study was merely statistical - so could not prove that coffee was the cause of the improved mortality - but it echoes findings from previous research.

So drink up my friends!

Lead author Dr Adela Navarro said: "I would advise drink plenty of coffee, it could be good for your heart".

In the past, one study surveyed more than 520,000 people in 10 European countries, making it the largest study to date on coffee and mortality.

Participants completed a food frequency questionnaire to collect information on coffee consumption, lifestyle and socio demographic characteristics, anthropometric measurements, and previous health conditions.

The research was conducted within the framework of the Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra (SUN) Project, a long-term prospective cohort study in more than 22,500 Spanish university graduates which started in 1999.

Some studies have found similar benefits among those drinking decaffeinated versions - leading scientists to conclude that the antioxidant plant compounds in coffee may provide the most benefit.

The average age of participants was 37.7 years old. "This may be due to a stronger protective association among older participants", Navarro said. A new study says having an extra cup isn't just a good idea, but may be healthy for you too.

Drinking coffee can also be a costly daily indulgence, so perhaps if you're drinking more coffee you could be more affluent which links back to better health.

The research study, authored by Dr. Adela Navarro, a cardiologist at Hospital de Navarra in Spain, was presented at the ESC's conference on August 27.

Researchers intend to continue tracking them, to see what impact coffee habits have later in life.

"Coffee drinkers should not rest on their laurels".
