Drinking Coffee May Help You Live Longer, According To New Research

By Nicole Caldwell

Two new studies that were just released completely validate our culture’s coffee obsession. Turns out, coffee doesn’t just bring you to life every day. The magical elixir may also help you live longer. In the past, unfiltered coffee (Turkish coffee, as well as coffee brewed by French press) has been associated with spikes in bad cholesterol levels, reduced fertility, insomnia, irritability, sped-up hearbeats and muscle tremors. Which might still be true, although all the positive press coming out on this drink we all love may tip the scales in a different direction once and for all.

Finally, we can agree that coffee has some serious benefits. 

The largest study ever done on coffee and mortality was released July 11.

For that research, 520,000 people in 10 European countries were surveyed about their coffee habits and health. Across the board, regular doses of coffee correlated to a lowered risk of death. Opening up the scope of this research is the second study, which expanded its subjects to include a more robust representation of different nationalities. Also released on July 11, the study, “Association of Coffee Consumption With Total and Cause-Specific Mortality Among Nonwhite Populations” found that drinking between two and four cups of coffee every day corresponds with lower mortality rates for all races.
