Drink 4 cups of coffee per day and reduce the risk of death by 65%, Scientists declare

There is a big good news for the caffeine-lovers. According to a new research presented at European Society of Cardiology ESC Congress 2017, drinking coffee reduces the risk of death from all kinds of causes. The research touted the health benefits of consuming coffee at least 4 times a day.

The research which was conducted on 20,000 participants declared that consuming coffee at least 4 cups a day reduces the mortality by over 66 percent.

Out of 20,000 participants on whom the research is carried out,  those who took four cups of coffee every day were 64 percent less likely to die over the period of the study than the people those who did not drink drank coffee. Another interesting point to note is that for each additional two cups of coffee a day, the risk is further reduced by extra 22 percent.

"Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages around the world," said Dr Adela Navarro, a cardiologist at Hospital de Navarra, Pamplona, Spain, in a statement. "Previous studies have suggested that drinking coffee might be inversely associated with all-cause mortality but this has not been investigated in a Mediterranean country."

The participants of the study filled in a food frequency questionnaire so that scientists could collect data on their coffee consumption, lifestyle and sociodemographic characteristics, anthropometric measurements, and any health conditions. This was then followed up with regular check-ins for an average of 10 years.

Within this time, 337 people – who started off with an average age of 37.7 years – died.

Sex and adherence to the Mediterranian diet had very limited impact on the result, but it turns out that age does make a difference. Those who are over 45 years of age drank an extra two cups of coffee per day and had a 30 percent lower risk of mortality. But this didn't have much of an impression on the younger members.
