Attention Coffee Drinkers

Coffee A recently published study states that contrary to popular belief, the constant drinking of coffee does not increase your risk of death, but instead lowers your death risk. If you are someone who drinks more than 6 cups of coffee per day you could be benefiting from this decreased death risk. The leader of this study states that although their research has found evidence that regular coffee consumption can help decrease
your risk of death, there is still a great deal of research yet to be done. There is a possibility as well of a slight benefit related to the decreased risk of chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer and other common causes of death that coffee may be able to promote.

Within this study, 84,214 women were studied and followed through the period between 1980 and 2004. Within this follow-up period, the research showed that women who drank anywhere from 2-3 cups of coffee per day decreased their risk of death by heart disease by 25%. Additionally, an 18% decrease in risk of death of anything other than cancer or heart disease was found within these participants in comparison to those who do not drink coffee.

For men on the other hand, 41,736 participated in this study from the years 1986 to 2004. The research associated with men who drink 2-3 cups of coffee per day found that they received neither a higher or lower risk of death; providing evidence that women are the most vulnerable to the health benefits of coffee. It is important to note here that the participants within the study were free of heart disease and cancer during the entire research project.

The participants within the study also completed a generic questionnaire every 2 years, which included lifestyle questions such as if they smoke, diet habits, current health conditions, how frequently they drink coffee, etc. The researchers then took these questions and applied them to the study so their findings would be nothing less than accurate. Taking all these factors into consideration, the above statistics were found. In the women’s participant group, 2,368 deaths occurred due to heart disease, 5,011 were due to cancer and 3,716 were associated with other causes. Within the male group, 2,049 deaths were caused by heart disease, 2,491 were due to cancer and 2,348 were associated with other chronic conditions.

It has not yet been determined as to what it is about coffee that prolongs the lives of the people within this study, however further testing is required. If you are currently a coffee drinker, this study is not stating that it is healthy to drink 12-20 cups of coffee per day. This study simply states that there are health benefits to be taken advantage of from coffee from moderate, consistent drinking habits. Caffeine can be one of the leading causes of weight gain and other health problems as well so make sure to keep your consumption moderate to receive the best of both worlds.
