Another Cup? More Coffee Could Be Linked to Longer Life Span

That doesn't mean people should dramatically up their coffee intake, though: There isn't enough data to change the guidelines to include more cups of coffee, Loftfield said. Don't panic. The results of a new decade-long study involving nearly 500,000 people suggest that drinking the beverage - in any quantity - leads to a longer life than not having any of it at all.

People who drank coffee, no matter how much or what kind they drank, were less likely to die over that 10-year period than non-coffee drinkers, they reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association's JAMA Internal Medicine.

Evidence published today adds to the mounting pile of recent research over the past five years suggesting that coffee may actually make you live longer. Using non-coffee drinkers as the reference group, the scientists were able to surmise that drinking instant, ground, and decaffeinated coffee was "inversely associated with mortality".

The second main way in which the study builds upon past research is that it took into account mortality incidence with respect to genetic differences in participants' metabolizing of caffeine.

That's because a massive new British study, examining the coffee habits and longevity of almost 500,000 adults, says there's an unmistakable across-the-board increase in longevity among people who drink lots of coffee. But overall, "coffee drinkers were about 10 percent to 15 percent less likely to die than abstainers during a decade of follow-up", according to an Associated Press report on the study.

So the study seems to suggest you can get much the same health benefits from cheap supermarket coffee as from a fancy cup of artisanal terroir coffee. "Or at least not be bad", Lichtenstein said.

Results aside, however, it is still not clear exactly how drinking coffee might affect longevity.

While the exact reason why coffee may boost your life longevity remains unclear, researchers say the results reinforce previous studies.

The study from the U.S. National Cancer Institute used information from more than half a million British volunteers who provided blood samples and answered detailed health and lifestyle questions.

Ms Loftfield said efforts to explain the potential longevity benefit are continuing. The low participation rate means those involved may have been healthier than the general United Kingdom population, the researchers said.

Participants filled out questionnaires about daily coffee consumption, exercise and other habits, and received physical exams including blood tests. That number rises to 16 percent for those who drank six to seven cups, before jumping down to 14 percent for those consuming eight or more.

During the period of the study, over 14,000 participants died.

Caffeine can cause short-term increases in blood pressure, and some smaller studies have suggested that it might be linked with high blood pressure, especially in people with a genetic variation that causes them to metabolise caffeine slowly.

The lower risk of death held true with both caffeinated and decaf coffee, leading researchers to believe the value of coffee lies in the beans.
