Studies Say Coffee Makes You Live Longer

That delicious cup of dark brew may actually add years to your life!  That's right.  Two to three cups a day appears to be the magic number to prolong your life.

Two recent studies have both concluded that coffee drinkers live longer lives than those who did not drink coffee.  One study from the Imperial College mined data from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study on 521,330 people from ten different countries over a period of 16 years.  A second study by the National Cancer Institute, USC and the University of Hawaii tracked 185,855 Americans since 1993 (24 years). In both studies, people who drank two to three cups a day had risk of death reduced by 18%.  In fact, when factoring in other health related causes of death, those that drank coffee were less likely to die from heart disease, cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease, stroke, diabetes or kidney disease. 

2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed each day.

Have you had your cups of coffee toady?
