Risk Of Death By Heart Disease, Stroke, Etc., Reduced By Coffee Drinking

November 18, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
A large, 30-year study conducted among healthcare professionals found that coffee drinking was linked to a lower risk of death from heart disease, stroke, diabetes, neurological diseases and suicide. No association with reduced cancer risk was found, however. The risk of death was reduced by six percent among nonsmokers who drank at least one cup of coffee – either caffeinated or decaffeinated – a day. The greatest reduction in risk – 15 percent – was found among nonsmokers who drank between three and five cups a day. Controlling for age, alcohol consumption, BMI and other health and diet factors did not change the results.
