Japanese who drank less than one cup of coffee per day were 9% less likely to die over the next 18.7 years compared to those who never drank coffee according to a recent study.
“We showed an inverse association between coffee intake and total mortality in both men and women,” the authors of the study concluded.
Conclusion: Habitual coffee intake is associated with a lower risk of death
“Coffee was inversely associated with mortality from heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, and respiratory disease,” they noted.
“With this prospective study, we suggest that the habitual intake of coffee is associated with lower risk of total mortality and 3 leading causes of death in Japan.”
Subjects: 90,914 Japanese persons ages 40- to 69-years-old
“We studied 90,914 Japanese persons aged between 40 and 69 [years-old] without a history of cancer, cerebrovascular disease, or ischemic heart disease at the time of the baseline study,” the paper notes.
Subjects were followed for an average of 18.7 years.
