Fantastic news for those of you who love your coffee

Coffee lovers rejoice! Your favourite hot cuppa can increase your longevity

Coffee drinkers had a lower risk of death because of heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and respiratory and kidney disease.

The other study, performed in Europe by Imperial College London, involved more than 500,000 people from 10 European Union countries.

Irrespective of ethnicity, people who drank two to three cups of coffee daily had an 18 per cent reduced risk of death.

"Importantly, these results were similar across all of the 10 European countries, with variable coffee drinking habits and customs", Murphy added.

The European study presented an inverse relation between coffee and circulatory diseases, digestive diseases, cancer in women, suicide in men, and liver disease.

"Our results suggest that moderate coffee drinking (up to ~three cups/day) is not detrimental to your health, and that incorporating coffee into your diet could actually have health benefits", says study author Marc Gunter.

"Coffee contains a lot of antioxidants and phenolic compounds that play an important role in cancer prevention", lead author Veronica Setiawan said in a statement.

90 percent of us all drink coffee every day and approximately 2.25 billion cups of coffee are drunk every day worldwide.

Coffee may have reported health benefits, but it's not necessarily safe for everyone.




Further research is needed but for now researchers are focused on what compounds are to credit for the health benefits of coffee.

International Agency for Research on Cancer and Imperial College London researchers said that they found out that drinking coffee is connected to lowering risk of death- most especially for diseases of the gut and heart diseases. It did its research on 185,000 whites, Latinos, Japanese-Americans, Hawaiians, Native Americans, and African-Americans. But the results from the two studies should alleviate any fears that there's something risky about drinking up to five cups of coffee each day, the authors added.

In addition, lower mortality was present regardless of whether people drank regular or decaffeinated coffee, suggesting the association is not tied to caffeine.

If you are one of those people who just has to have their cup of coffee in the morning in order to function, you just might think that coffee is a gift that came from heaven to keep you awake and going.

"But if you've always been a coffee drinker", she said, "there's no reason to stop". They saw a reduced risk of early death by diseases related to the digestive and circulatory systems.

Prof Peter Hayes, part of the University of Edinburgh team, said: "We have shown coffee reduces cirrhosis and also liver cancer in a dose-dependent manner".

"Recommending coffee intake to reduce mortality or prevent chronic disease would be premature", an accompanying editorial of the journal wrote.

Wendy Setiawan, an epidemiologist and cancer researcher, said, "Until now, there's no data in non-whites showing protective associations between coffee and death rates and I think it's really important to show in nonwhite populations, who we know have different lifestyles, different disease risks, if we can see similar associations".
