A New Study says people who coffee live longer….But, it may be because coffee drinkers have healthier lifestyles.
People who drink coffee have a lower risk of dying from a host of causes, including heart disease, stroke and liver disease, research suggests – but experts say it’s unclear whether the health boost is down to the brew itself…The results revealed that drinking one cup of coffee a day was linked to a 12% lower risk of death at any age, from any cause while those drinking two or three cups a day had an 18% lower risk, with the association not linked to ethnicity.
The study featured people who drank at least one cup per day, but on average the folks in the study drank 2.25 cups per day. But there was a caution:
“It is not necessarily the coffee drinking per se, it is that fact that there are other things about your lifestyle or the lack of ill-health that might be causing the association,” said Naveed Sattar, professor of metabolic medicine at the University of Glasgow, pointing out that while coffee might have beneficial effects, it would take randomised trials to be sure.”
And to the best of our knowledge, the study was not paid for by STARBUCKS! Hahaha, So Drink Up!
