COFFEE & LONGEVITY

Posted: 11.28.2017
Coffee contains antioxidants, nutrients and minerals. Drinking coffee has been linked to lower risk of Parkinson's disease, type 2 diabetes and dementia. However, a new study found an association between coffee consumption and lower risk of death. Participants in the study were from the Mediterranean region, were average age 37 and were followed for 10 years. Investigators found that those who drank about 4 cups of coffee a day had a 64% lower risk of death than those who drank little or no coffee at all. This study is observational and doesn't prove a cause-and-effect relationship, only an association.
