Could Coffee Be The New Elixir For Eternal Life?


*WARNING* consume the following info with a ‘grain of salt’, or in a caffeine junkie’s case a ‘cube of sugar’ for the java…

A new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine by researchers from the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer, and from the Imperial College of London

‘tracked 521,000 adults from 10 European countries who self-reported their coffee consumption over an average of 16 years. They looked for associations between the amount of coffee consumed and various health indications, but it’s not a cause-and-effect relationship. In investigating more than 40,000 deaths from this group, the team found that participants who fell into the highest 25 percent of coffee consumers had a lower risk of death due to any cause compared to non-coffee drinkers. They saw a reduced risk of early death by diseases related to the digestive and circulatory systems. The researchers also discovered a link between higher coffee consumption and lower risk of early death by lung cancer in men…they also looked at suicide — completed suicides were lower for coffee drinkers, but only in men.’


In a second study published by the University of Southern California, 180,000 people were tracked and investigations concluded ‘drinking one to six cups of coffee per week led to a decreased risk of early death.’

Assistant professor and senior study author V. Wendy Setiawan, at Keck School of Medicine, remains cautious about the hype stating, ‘we cannot say coffee will prolong your life [but] we can say moderate coffee consumption can be incorporated into diet for a healthy lifestyle.’

So DRINK UP our fellow caffeineaholics! We ride & die TOGETHER!
