Aug. 28, 2017

The more coffee you drink, the lower your risk of death, according to research presented at the ESC Congress, reports Comunicaffe. The observational study included over 19,000 participants with an average age of 37.7 years. Over the 10 year study, 337 participants died. Using this and other data, researchers found that those who drank at least four cups of coffee a day had a 64 percent lower risk of all-cause mortality than those who never or almost never drank coffee. For each two additional cups of coffee per day, the risk lowered 22 percent.
