This may be good news for coffee lovers. It is known that the intake of coffee with caffeine content is often associated with negative effects on health. Such as coronary heart disease or the trigger of high cholesterol. Some people are even very willing to overcome coffee addiction.
However, new research suggests that drinking coffee can make life long. This was reported in the Huffington Post.
A study conducted by the National Cancer Institute, analyzed the relationship between coffee consumption and mortality, it showed that men who drank at least 6 glasses of coffee per day can reduce the risk of death by 12 percent.
For women who love Latte (which has lower coffee content) have risk of death 15 percent lower than women who do not like to drink coffee. In fact, one cup a day effect on these differences.
Research shows that coffee drinking is associated with a decreased risk of death from heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke, diabetes, infections, and injuries and accidents.
However, the researchers also emphasize the contribution of coffee consumption to improve health remains unclear. These findings do not establish causality.
Freedman, researcher from the National Cancer Institute, reveals, most coffee drinkers tend to smoke more, so it is a major cause of death. “We found that coffee drinkers tend to face a higher risk of death. But, when they are not connected with cigarettes, we found an inverse relationship,” he said.
Dr Eun Paul of British Coffee Association said, the consumption of 4-5 cups of coffee a day are still in the category of safe and has positive impact on health. There are actually many health benefits of drinking coffee. Previously it was even known that coffee consumption can reduce dry eye syndrome.
