Researchers have found that coffee can be good for you. People who drink coffie regularly, moderate amounts of coffee are less likely to die from a range of diseases, from diabetes to heart disease.
But heavy coffee drinking doesn’t appear to offset the damage caused by smoking.
Frank Hu, a professor of nutrition and epidemiology who helped lead the study told that “The main message is that regular consumption, meaning three to five cups of coffee a day, is associated with lower risk in total mortality and mortality from several causes like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and suicide,”
Coffee drinkers are less likely to die over the decades than non-drinkers. The effects are even stronger and clearer when the team discounted smokers. Non-smokers who drank coffee were between 8 and 15 percent less likely to die, depending on how much they drank in the research.
Hu said: “This is good news for people who drink coffee because the evidence is strong. Drinking coffee may be good for health outcome,”
And the People who drink more coffee also are more likely to smoke, drink, and to eat red meat. Other lifestyle habits may also go along with heavy coffee drinking. The researchers didn’t report on whether people drank their coffee black, with cream, with sugar, or as giant frothy drinks from coffee store chains.
Hu said:”We are not advocating coffee as a strategy for prevention of the chronic diseases because coffee drinking is individual behavior and there are other factors in the diet that have a bigger effect. People should also be aware of the amount of added sugar to coffee drinks which can become a problem,”.
