3 coffees a day gives you a shot at living longer
A recent research project in Australia conducted by the Baker Heart and Diabetes Research Institute has discovered that drinking two to three cups of coffee a day cuts the risk of heart disease and helps people live longer.
Researchers followed nearly 450,000 individuals aged between 40 and 69 for over 12 and a half years. They found that those who had the two to three cups of ground coffee per day were 27 per cent less likely to die early than non-drinkers. Decaffeinated coffee cut the odds by 14 per cent and instant by 11 per cent.
Coffee also cut the risk of cardiovascular disease – by 20 per cent, 6 per cent and 9 per cent for each type of coffee drunk respectively.
