Drink coffee? It may reduce your risk of an early death

"We felt this analysis would capture some of [the] variation in coffee preparation methods and drinking habits", said Gunter.

Researchers from Imperial College London and the University of Southern California (USC) who conducted the studies said the positive effects of coffee are credible because of the antioxidants in the drink.

People who drink around three cups of coffee a day may live longer than non-coffee drinkers, a landmark study suggests.

They found coffee tied to a reduced risk of death from digestive diseases among both men and women, along with a decreased risk of death from circulatory and cerebrovascular diseases among women.

The studies involved more than 700,000 participants from across a number of races, ethnicities, and cultural backgrounds.

It found that men who drank three cups of joe per day were 18% less likely to die during the study period than people who drank no coffee.

Two major studies, one led by British researchers and one in the U.S., have independently found consuming up to three cups a day reduces the risk of an early death.

"This study is the largest of its kind and includes minorities who have very different lifestyles", Veronica Setiawan, the study's lead author and an associate professor of preventive medicine at the Keck School of Medicine, said.

Anxious you're drinking too much coffee? Even better, for those of who don't like the jitters, the coffee could be caffeinated or decaf.

According to the group, more research is needed to find out which of the compounds in coffee may be giving a protective effect or potentially benefiting health.

These lower risk values were after the researchers had adjusted for other factors, like smoking, drinking alcohol and eating more red meats, all of which the biggest coffee drinkers were more likely to do.

"We can not say coffee will prolong your life", Setiawan said. "If people enjoy their coffee they can relax and enjoy their coffee", he said, adding that people should not imagine that drinking extra coffee would militate against "other bad health behaviours".

By now, it's clear: There's a strong case for the health benefits of coffee.

However, he also raised doubts about drawing conclusions on cause and effect from the data presented in the research, because people who are sick may drink less coffee.

Coffee is one of the world's most commonly consumed beverages, with an estimated 2.25 billion cups drank around the world each day.

Not the least, it found signs of an association between women who consumed large amounts of coffee and a higher risk of cancer death, but under played this finding, saying it "may be spurious".

Some good news for everyone already fantasising about their morning latte: New research has discovered drinking multiple cups of coffee could reduce the risk of an early death.

Drinking coffee could cut the risk of dying early, with each cup increasing lifespan by up to nine minutes a day, research suggests.

The highest level of coffee consumption by volume was seen in Denmark at 900ml a day and the lowest in Italy at 92ml a day.

While you may just love coffee for the flavor and buzz, according to both studies, coffee drinkers actually face a lowered risk of death compared to non-coffee drinkers.
