Drink Coffee for a Longer Life?
Coffee drinkers have modestly lower mortality rates than people who don’t drink coffee, two recent studies in the Annals of Internal Medicine have found.
One study followed more than 450,000 adults from 10 European countries for an average of 16 years and found that coffee was associated with a 12 percent reduction in all-cause mortality rates in men and a 7 percent reduction in women, with higher intakes linked to greater benefits.
The second study followed 185,000 U.S. adults, also for 16 years, and linked one daily cup of coffee to a 12 percent reduction in mortality rates—and two or more cups to an 18 percent reduction—across multiple ethnic groups (except native Hawaiians, possibly because of their small number).
