Coffee lovers, rejoice! Drink coffee, live longer
Just last week we posted an article that talked about some of the health concerns people have about coffee. If that didn't convince you that drinking coffee is a good thing, then we know this will! Last night, the National Institutes of Health released a report about a joint project with the AARP documenting coffee drinkers between the ages of 50 and 71. For up to 13 years they followed over 400,000 people! The results were pretty convincing: Drinking coffee every day isn't likely to harm your health, and it even lowers your chances of dying from chronic diseases. The more coffee you drink, the less likely heart disease and diabetes (just to name a couple) will take a toll on your life. Don't believe us? Just look here and here! This is, by far, the largest study of its kind ever done, so the results are even more reliable than any other studies done on coffee. Plus, the results were the same whether the participants drank caffeinated or decaf coffee! Coffee is full of good antioxidants and other healthy compounds, and drinking coffee daily can help you live a longer, healthier life. I don't know about you, but I'm going to go enjoy a fresh cup of coffee right now!
