Drinking coffee could reduce your chance of death 'by years', scientists say

Researchers believe that rather than being an effect of caffeine consumption, these benefits are linked to the antioxidants found in coffee.

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

Gunter is lead author of one of the studies, which involved data from over half a million people across ten European countries and 16 years of follow-up research.

More specifically, the study found that the coffee drinkers had a lowered risk of dying of digestive diseases and circulatory disease.

"That said, our results suggest that moderate coffee drinking is not detrimental to your health, and that incorporating coffee into your diet could have health benefits", he says.

Leader of the USA study, Dr Veronica Setiawan also told the Daily Mail UK that it is the antioxidants and phenolic compounds that play an important role in cancer prevention. "This included checking 1 of 9 boxes, ranging from "never or hardly ever" to 4 or more cups daily", and reporting whether they drank caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee.

In all four groups, coffee showed a health benefit.

However, the researchers have warned that the studies, which required participants to self-report, could neglect other health behaviors shared by coffee fans, such as exercise and balanced eating.

Setiawan and her researchers don't know the exact reason why coffee appears to reduce disease risk, but drew their conclusion based on the lower number of deaths among coffee drinkers in their 16-year study, to be published today by Annals of Internal Medicine.

In the study, data of 185,855 African-Americans (17 %), Native Hawaiians (7 %), Japanese-Americans (29 %), Latinos (22 %) and whites (25 %) who were 45 to 75 years old at the time of recruitment were examined.

The studies reinforce previous findings that drinking an 8-ounce cup of joe (or three) won't hurt you, but the authors of the new works and other experts say caveats abound.

Two new studies - one in the United States, one in the UK - have found that drinking three cups of coffee a day can lengthen your life.

That runs counter to the common belief that coffee drinking is a bad habit - a belief the evidence does not bear out, according to Setiawan. Coffee won't magically fix all your health issues and help you to live forever, but there's a chance it may help your body to keep ticking on.

"We're not at the point where we can say with full confidence that it's protective", said Dr. Eliseo Guallar, professor at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Health, who co-authored an accompanying editorial. Compared to people who didn't drink coffee, the ones who drank the most had lower mortality levels overall, as well as lower mortality from specific illnesses, including circulatory diseases and digestive diseases, particularly liver diseases. But that finding was primarily driven by a statistically significant association between drinking coffee and risk of death from ovarian cancer.

As one of the world's most popular beverages, it is clear that us humans do love a good cup of coffee. "If you're not a coffee drinker, then you need to consider if you should start", said Dr Veronica Setiawan, associate professor of preventative medicine at USC.
