Remember when we told you everyone is chugging five cups of coffee a day? Ya know, for their health?
Well, in addition to staving off a bunch of ailments (like melanoma, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, Parkinson’s disease, colon cancer, prostate cancer and Alzheimer’s), a new study from the Harvard School of Public Health just showed a strong association between drinking coffee...
AND LIVING FOREVER!
We kid, we kid. The association, though, is between drinking coffee and living longer. And that is no joke.
Evidently, the researchers found that people who drank three to five cups of coffee per day (even decaf) had about a 15 percent lower risk of premature mortality compared with people who didn't drink coffee at all. For now, there are no direct reasons why this is the case (since so many other lifestyle variables are in play). But anyone who appreciates a cup (or seven) will tell you that the simple act of taking a break and enjoying something delicious does wonders for your stress levels.
Cheers to your longer (albeit slightly buzzed) life.
