Could Coffee Be the Elixir of Life – Dave’s Diary

Is Starbucks or the corner coffee shop the new first aid station?  Is that cup of Joe the elixir of life? Perhaps!  The National Institute for Health reports drinking coffee can lower your risk of dying from chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.The researchers took a pretty big gulp in studying 400,000 healthy subjects between the ages of 50 and 71 during the 13 year study. Coffee drinkers were found to be less likely than their peers to die and the more coffee they drank, the lower their mortality risk because.

Compared with people who drank no coffee at all, those who had six or more cups a day were 10 to 15 percent less likely to die during the study. This pattern held when the researchers broke down data by specific causes of death, including heart disease, lung disease, pneumonia, stroke, diabetes and infections.

Cancer was the only major cause of death affected by coffee consumption.
