In a study with the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, coffee drinking and mortality in ten European countries was investigated.
The study noted: “Coffee is one of the most commonly consumed beverages with an estimated 2.25 billion cups consumed per day worldwide.
“Coffee drinking provides exposure to a range of biologically-active compounds, including many with antioxidant activity, and higher coffee consumption has also been linked with lower levels of inflammation, insulin resistance, and reduced risk of diabetes.
“Recent U.S. based studies have reported that higher coffee consumption was related to lower all-cause mortality risk.”
In another study with the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, the association of coffee consumptions and mortality was analysed.
The study noted: “Coffee consumption has been associated with reduced risk for death in prospective cohort studies.
“Compared with drinking no coffee, coffee consumption was associated with lower total mortality after adjustment for smoking and other potential confounders.”
