Can Coffee Extend Your Life?

In the study, published today (July 2) in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, Loftfield and her team at the NCI analyzed data from almost 500,000 people who took part in the U.K. Biobank study.

Even people who said they drank more than eight cups a day were less likely to die, on average, than non-drinkers, the team, led by NCI's Erikka Lotfield, reported.

For the current study, the researchers analysed information provided by about 5,00,000 people, who answered questions about their coffee consumption, smoking and drinking habits, health history and more.

"Coffee makes you happy, it gives you something to look forward to in the morning, " said Taylor, a sound engineer from Las Vegas.

Years ago, health concerns about coffee included fears that it might raise risk of pancreatic cancer and other diseases.

Generally speaking, people who drank two to three cups of coffee every day had a lower risk of death than those who didn't.

In a 10-year follow-up period, around 14,000 people in the study died (the leading causes of death were cancer, cardiovascular disease and respiratory diseases).

A White House spokesperson confirmed that Trump asked his team to work up ideas to "remedy" what he sees as unfair trade laws. Trump would not be able to withdraw the United States from the WTO without the approval of Congress.

That finding, combined with the apparent longevity-boosting effect of decaf coffee, suggests that caffeine isn't the life-lengthening mechanism at work in java, Loftfield said.

Researchers accessed genetic data for 403,816 of the 498,134 study participants to create 2 genetic "caffeine metabolism" scores (CMSG) by "adding the number of alleles of single base changes, or single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), previously associated with blood caffeine metabolite levels, and the map near genes with plausible roles in caffeine metabolism".

Actually caffeine can keep you more hydrated than other liquids because you are drinking it with a volume of fluid like iced coffee or tea. However the association with a lower risk of death was observed both for slow and fast metabolisers of caffeine.

"But", she added, "I would also suggest if someone doesn't enjoy coffee, the data are not strong enough that they should start drinking coffee". That study is particularly important, as it shows these benefits apply to African Americans, Native Hawaiians, Japanese Americans, Latinos, and white people.

It's another piece of good news for coffee lovers, and it gets even better. Instead, it could be one or a combination of several of the hundreds of chemicals that make up coffee.

Wellington barista Clarke Gardiner is welcoming evidence from a major United Kingdom study linking coffee consumption with a lower risk of premature death.

It was also the first large study to suggest a benefit even in people with genetic glitches affecting how their bodies use caffeine. So the next time someone says they're trying to limit their coffee consumption, you can tell them not to worry about it.
