Among people who had never smoked, those who drank one cup of coffee per day were 6% less likely to die over the next 14-30 years compared to non-drinkers according to a new study from researchers at Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
Coffee Associated with Fewer Deaths
Fewer deaths from cardiovascular disease, neurological diseases, and suicide
“Significant inverse associations were observed between coffee consumption and deaths due to cardiovascular disease, neurological diseases, and suicide,” the paper notes.
“No significant association between coffee consumption and total cancer mortality was found.”
“Higher consumption of total coffee, caffeinated coffee, and decaffeinated coffee was associated with lower risk of total mortality.”
