Study: Regular and decaf coffee appears to lower "death risk"
CINCINNATI (WKRC) – A new study that was just released says that you may want to pour another cup, or two, of coffee.
If you woke up needing a few extra cups today, then you are going to like this research.
It has just been released by the Annals of Internal Medicine.
It actually comes from two new studies on coffee which both found drinking coffee lowers your risk for death.
The first study of those who drink coffee was conducted in ten European countries.
It was the largest study of its kind.
It ranked people who never drank coffee to those who drank one, two, three or more than three cups a day.
The most benefit, in terms of lowering death rates, seemed to come from those who did three or more a day.
The second study was in America and researchers in this study wanted to find out the impact of drinking coffee on multiple races.
This is the first study to compare the effect of coffee on white and non-white populations.
It found that higher coffee consumption was associated with a lower death risk in those who are white, or not white, including African Americans, Latinos, and Japanese Americans.
In these populations, one cup of coffee per day had a 12 percent reduction for death, and two to three cups had an 18 percent reduced risk.
The really interesting part in all this is that they found the same benefit for those who had coffee, with or without caffeine.
