How much coffee do you drink a day?

How much coffee do you drink a day?

A new study has good news for Kenyan farmers after revealing that people who drink coffee regularly do live longer.

One study reported by Medical News Today, for example, suggested that drinking coffee daily may halve the risk of liver cancer, while an earlier study linked the beverage to reduced dementia risk.

The first study, led by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and Imperial College London, examined more than half a million people across 10 countries in Europe.

Researchers think this study is the biggest analysis highlighting the effect of coffee in the European communities. Stay tuned on IBT AU for more updates on drinking coffee and the health benefits associated with it.

Another study conducted in the United States involving over 180,000 people from different ethnicities concluded that coffee plays an important role in lengthening the lifespan even if it is decaffeinated.

The study also found that compared to people who drank no coffee, those who drank one cup per day had a 12 percent less risk to die during follow up. A piping cup of cappuccino, hot espresso, or iced latte, name your fuel and rejoice because believe it or not, drinking coffee reduces your risk of death.

"I was surprised by how consistently our findings fit in, relative to what has been previously published", said Veronica Setiawan, the lead author of the USA study and an epidemiologist at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California.

So drink up, you're increasing your time on Earth! And why not, a beverage of which 2.25 billion cups are consumed everyday deserves to be studied well. As most studies on coffee have focused primarily on Europeans, the second study was noteworthy. "Now we can tell people to drink their coffee and be happy".

Experts who were not involved in the latest studies urged caution in interpreting the results. There were 185,855 subjects who were tracked on average for 16.2 years.

Finally, it found signs of a link between women who drank large amounts of coffee and a higher risk of cancer death, but downplayed this finding, saying it "may be spurious".

Co-author of the research and U.S. based Associate Professor Veronica Setiawan from the University of Southern California said: "We found that coffee drinkers had a reduced risk of death from heart disease, cancer, stroke, respiratory disease, and diabetes and kidney disease". It is not possible to establish cause and effect.

So quit fretting and go enjoy a cup of coffee (or a pot)! .
