Adults who drink 2.5-4.5 cups of coffee daily are less likely to die in the next seven years than those who don’t. Coffee drinkers have a 29% lower risk of death. It doesn’t matter if they add sugar.
The Guardian writes about this, citing a study by the Southern Medical University in Guangzhou.
The results are based on the analysis of data from 171 thousand people from the British Biobank database. Chinese scientists have been tracking the fate of volunteers for seven years since 2009.
“Due to the observational nature of this study, its conclusions cannot be considered conclusive. The results may be due to coffee drinkers being generally wealthier and healthier than non-drinkers,” metabolic medicine professor Naveed Sattar warned.
