Drinking Up to Eight Cups of Coffee a Day Could Help You Live Longer

Good news for coffee fiends: That extra cup of joe in the afternoon could help you live longer, according to a new UK-based study spotted by Newsweek. Researchers determined that people who drink between one and eight cups of coffee per day may have a lower chance of death, regardless of whether their bodies are able to metabolize caffeine well.

To reach these conclusions, the team of researchers analyzed data from the UK Biobank pertaining to the lifestyle choices, demographics, and genetic information of 500,000 people, 87 percent of whom were coffee drinkers. More than 14,000 participants died during the course of the study from 2006 to 2010, and an inverse relationship between coffee drinking and the risk of death was recorded.

These findings were published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, but scientists say more research is needed to determine the link between coffee and other health outcomes. A similar study last year by the European Society of Cardiology suggested that people who drink up to four cups of coffee a day are 64 percent less likely to die early than those who hardly drank coffee. Every two additional cups of coffee improved one’s odds of an extended life span by 22 percent, researchers determined.

However reassuring these results may be to latte lovers, public health specialist Robin Poole of the University of Southampton told Newsweek that this doesn’t necessarily mean non-coffee drinkers should suddenly start caffeinating. (Poole was not involved in the study.)

"We know that some people metabolize caffeine quite slowly and are less tolerant of the apparent physical affects of caffeine, which of course comes from many sources other than coffee,” Poole said. “Such people would be better to avoid too much coffee, or move toward decaffeinated choices, [which] this study has shown still have beneficial associations.”

Just because the article says coffee is good for you does not mean you should switch.  Further research suggests tea is even better but the article neglects to mention tea at all, except for the "tea" in team.  

Coffee or Tea? An RD Weighs in on Which Is Healthier

Tea boasts a long list of health benefits. The rich antioxidants in tea fight inflammation, and have been shown to help prevent blood vessels from hardening. Tea drinkers have a significantly lower risk of stroke and heart disease, and tea is known to boost brain health. One study, for example, found that compared with older adults who drank less than three cups a week, those who drank more than two cups of green tea a day had a significantly lower risk of age-related declines in memory.

Regular tea drinkers also have higher bone density levels and slower rates of bone loss.

Overall it's associated with anti-aging: research shows that the cells of regular tea drinkers have a younger biological age than non-drinkers. Pretty potent stuff!

I get up 3am, load my 100 cup Dowell coffee urn with water, straight from the sink. Then add 8 heaping tablespoons of Tim Hortons fresh ground coffee. 30 mins later I have my 1st delicious cup of coffee (but I use a 12oz mug).

FIL up at 4am and he starts drinking. By 8am the pot is almost gone after wife, MIL, BIL & SIL have had their cups. I pour the remaining coffee into a Maxwell House thermos carafe and FIL drinks that all day long.

Looks like we gonna live forever.

Of course the research was sponsored by the International Coffee Growers Association, and El Exigente himself.

Oh great! So, because I don't drink coffee, I'm doomed? Geez...  :shocked:

Well, I do drink tea, so maybe there's still hope. :cool:

I had heard that up to 5 cups a day has increasingly beneficial effects for liver health.

I used to drink that much coffee, but really starting playing havoc with my stomach.

Tea only now with maybe 1 coffee every few weeks.
