Longevity link: Coffee drinking and reduced mortality risk

From the September 2012 issue.

Scientists find increased coffee consumption associated to reduced risk of death.

Scientists have given long-term coffee drinkers a reason to smile, reporting that increased coffee consumption is associated to reduced risk of death.

“Coffee is a widely consumed beverage worldwide, but the relationship of coffee drinking with health has been unclear,” says Dr Neal Freedman from the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in America. “Our intended aim was to investigate whether coffee drinking was associated with total risk of death over the course of our study and to look at various different causes of death.”

Freedman and his colleagues conducted an observational study on more than 400,000 people over 14 years. The study consisted of about 229,000 men and 173,000 women between 50 to 71 years old.
