Fresh grounds for coffee: Study shows it may boost longevity
06 July 2018, 09:41 | Rodolfo Wallace
A newstudy shows that people who drink coffee, even those who drink eight or more cups a day, are less likely to die early than non-coffee drinkers.
The study was published on Monday in the journal Jama Internal Medicine.
No matter the cause of death, drinking coffee was associated with longer life expectancy for all participants, aged between 38-73 years.
Over the 10 years of follow up (median, 7 years) the study found that participants with lower CMSG scores had similar associations between coffee drinking levels and mortality as participants with higher scores, "indicating no modification of the association between coffee drinking and all-cause mortality by these common polymorphisms related to caffeine metabolism". Though there were slight differences among the types of coffee people drank, the results generally held true for instant, ground and decaf coffee.
Your cognitive health will also get a boost from coffee: studies link drinking 3-4 cups a day in midlife with a significant reduction in the risk of dementia and Alzheimer's disease, again most likely because it is blocking inflammation in the brain that can spark a decline.
Most were coffee drinkers, nearly one-third or 154,000 people drank two to three cups daily and 10,000 drank at least eight cups daily.
Because some people's genetics make them slower to metabolize caffeine, the researchers wanted to see if that made coffee consumption riskier for these individuals.
The study looked at almost 500,000 adults in the United Kingdom over the course of 10 years.

Having a cup of coffee could boost your chances of living a longer life, according to new research from the United Kingdom.
As all this data shows, coffee is likely beneficial for most of us, and at the very least not harmful.
"A lot of people start drinking tea because they know all the negative stuff associated with coffee and they come in and they're like, 'Oh, I've drunk too much coffee already today, ' and you can now say to them that actually it's beneficial to health", he said. Drinking filter coffee instead of espresso increasespolyphenols and removes substances that contribute to "bad" low-density lipoprotein cholesterol.

From that huge sample size, the study found that coffee drinking had a pronounced inverse association with mortality, meaning fewer participants who regularly consumed coffee died during the study period.
He added: "Healthier coffee, free from sugar or syrup, should also be encouraged to optimize any health benefit".
