Drink up: Research shows coffee is good for you

Most were coffee drinkers, nearly one-third or 154,000 people drank two to three cups daily and 10,000 drank at least eight cups daily.

The researchers used data from the UK Biobank study, through which a large group of UK adults completed health questionnaires, underwent physical examinations and provided biological samples.

Overall, coffee drinkers were about 10 percent to 15 percent less likely to die than abstainers during a decade of follow-up.

But coffee drinkers in the United Kingdom study did not have higher risks than non-drinkers of dying from heart disease and other blood-pressure-related causes.

"There has been concern about the health effects of heavy coffee drinking, particularly in participants with common genetic polymorphisms (differences) that affect caffeine metabolism", the researchers wrote. The findings were true among all coffee drinkers, even those who might be more sensitive to the effects of caffeine.

Amla is loaded with vitamin C that is known to build your body's defence mechanisms against diseases and infections.

While there are caveats to that claim, the new study found that a longer life was linked to any kind of coffee: instant, decaf, whatever.

That means it's possible the Galaxy Tab S4 could introduce an under-screen fingerprint scanner , like that on the Vivo X21 . Running on Octa-core processors, these smartphones come in 2-4GB RAM with 32GB storage internal memory.

"This study provides further evidence that coffee drinking can be part of a healthy diet and offers reassurance to coffee drinkers", wrote the National Cancer Institute (NCI) researchers, who analyzed data from almost 500,000 people through the U.K. Biobank, a large-scale genomic and health database. As so many studies have revealed, it offers a host of benefits for happy drinkers.

Coffee lovers may not have to feel that familiar pang of guilt when pouring themselves yet another cup of joe for the day.

They found non-coffee drinkers were more likely to have died than those that drunk coffee.

The study was published Monday in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine. "The tastes may vary depending on how you drink the coffee; the chemical compounds that may be beneficial probably don't change as much, so regardless of how you drink coffee, you're probably going to get most of the benefits". And when all causes of death were combined, even slow caffeine metabolisers had a longevity boost.

There is some evidence that coffee can help people recover from colon cancer, lower diabetes risk and reduce the inflammation associated with diabetes and heart disease.

So is all of the glowing research around coffee consumption scientifically sound, or yet another case of over-hyped public health reporting lacking nuance? So the next time someone says they're trying to limit their coffee consumption, you can tell them not to worry about it. Coffee drinking was inversely associated with all-cause mortality, that is more coffee a person drank less were the risks of that person dying.
