A new study has just proven that coffee drinkers would live longer. And we who thought that tea was sacred …
Good news for caffeine addicts! On July 2, 2018, a survey published in the JAMA Internal Medicine Journal revealed that coffee would allow us to live longer. Especially in high doses: researchers at the US National Cancer Institute (NCI) even recommend drinking seven cups of coffee a day.
To reach this conclusion, the team of scientists analyzed the habits of more than 502 000 participants, aged 38 to 73 years. All had to say if they drank ground coffee, decaf or instant, for more precision. As a result, among the 14,200 participants who died (the survey lasted 10 years), the death rate for those who drank eight kawas or more dropped by 14%, unlike those who were not coffee-addicts. Among those who drank six to seven cups, the death rate dropped by 16%.
This is not the first time that science praises the benefits of caffeine: in March 2017, another study revealed that a good mochaccino was very effective against fatigue and anxiety disorders. George Clooney likes this.
