Want to live longer? Maybe the secret is to have coffee
Good news for coffee lovers: A recent study released by the New York Daily News revealed that daily consumption of four cups of coffee reduces our risk of death.
The survey, which was carried out by the Navarre Hospital in Pamplona, Spain, found that this decrease in death risks reaches 64% for people who do not drink coffee or who consume it in small quantities.
To reach this conclusion, the researchers followed the health rates of 20, 000 people over 10 years. Data revealed that those over 45 had a 30% lower chance of death if they drank two more cups of coffee a day.
Adela Navarro, a cardiologist and one of the study's authors, said this research suggests that four cups of coffee a day can be part of a healthy diet.
Further research needs to be done on the topic to find out more benefits of the drink and the relationships that its consumption has with decreasing heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and even some cancers. Until then, the way is not to feel guilty when sipping your coffee every day and, of course, repeat the dose.
