Drink more coffee they say and you could live longer. But who is “they” and is this true?
The National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, and the Feinberg School of medicine at Northwestern University recently reviewed coffee-drinking data and from the UK Biobank, a long-term study of half a million people in the U.K. aged 38 to 74.
The results, published in JAMA Internal Medicine and summarized in Popular Science magazine, were amazing. “Not only do coffee drinkers live longer on average than non-coffee drinkers (that was already a well-known phenomenon) but people who drink a lot of java tend to live longer than people who drink moderately or sparsely.”
It’s important to note that what the research shows
is a correlation, not a causal connection. “It’s possible that people drink more coffee because their lifestyle is generally more healthy, hence they live longer. Possible but not likely, though, considering the wealth of other evidence confirming that drinking a cup of joe results in:
A 20% reduced risk of cancer.
A 20% reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes.
A 30% reduced risk of Parkinson’s disease.
A 5% reduced risk of heart disease.
The likelihood that “the more you drink the healthier you get” is obviously great news for those of us who might otherwise be afraid that we’re drinking too much of the “get me going” beverage. So how much “magic” are we talking about here? Apparently the health-giving effects of coffee pile up even when you drink as many as eight or more cups a day.”
