Drinking Coffee Tied to Lower Risk of Death
A new study conducted by The Oxford Journal revealed coffee drinkers are less likely to die of heart disease and other ailments, as compared to non-coffee drinkers. Dr. Erikka Loftfield of the National Cancer Institute in Rockville, Maryland conducted the study over a10-year period and founded these results.
With no change for decaf drinkers, the study found the more coffee drinkers consume the less of a chance they had to develop potentially fatal causes like heart disease and diabetes.
“Coffee contains numerous biologically active compounds, including phenolic acids, potassium, and caffeine,” Dr. Loftfield told Reuters Health.
Loftfield also explained this particular study is backed by others that have found frequent coffee drinking can lead to less of a risk of heart-related deaths. Researchers found coffee drinkers to be less susceptible to heart disease, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes, pneumonia and influenza and suicide. However, drinking coffee has no effect on dying of cancer.
Furthermore, drinking 400 milligrams of caffeinated coffee a day (up to 5 cups) is not associated with any long-term health risks. Moderate coffee drinking – or 200 milligrams a day – is even safe for pregnant women. So why aren’t you drinking coffee from US Coffee right now?
