Latest Study: Drinking Coffee Make People Live Longer
A recent study done by American Heart Association said that people who drink one to five cups of coffee a day can lower their risk of death, compared to those who do not drink coffee. However, there's a limit, it should only be five cups or you won’t get the health benefits if you go over it.
“In our study, we found people who drank 3 to 5 cups of coffee per day had about a 15% lower risk of premature mortality compared to people who didn’t drink coffee,” nutrition researcher Walter Willett of the Harvard School of Public Health said.
The study included those drinking decaffeinated coffee. Both the decaf and the original coffee give
similar benefits which only suggests that caffeine is not a factor for the benefits.
“We’re not sure exactly how coffee is linked to all these benefits. The coffee bean itself is loaded with many different nutrients and phytochemicals. And my guess is that they’re working together to have some of these benefits,” Willett said.
Certainly a good news for a coffee addict like me!
