New Studies Show Coffee Drinkers May Live Longer

WHO, after labeling coffee a carcinogen linked to bladder cancer for 25 years, has announced in the previous year that drinking coffee reduces the risk for liver and uterine cancer.

Scientists said the results indicated that moderate coffee intake was safe and enjoying an espresso, cappuccino or latte could offer health protection.

Two long-term studies with a total of 700,000 participants show that coffee-drinkers have a lower risk of dying from multiple causes, in particular from circulatory and gastrointestinal diseases.

"We can not say drinking coffee will prolong your life, but we see an association", Setiawan said. "This is an observational study", said Setiawan. It was conducted to capture the variation in coffee drinking habits and preparation methods. It has more than 215,000 participants.

These findings do not mean that people should rush to drink litres of coffee everyday.

Men who downed at least three cups of coffee a day were 18 per cent less likely to die than non-coffee drinkers. It's one of the most diverse studies going right now, and includes subjects of African American, Latino, Native Hawaiian, and Japanese heritage.

CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook said it can be hard to make recommendations based on dietary studies "because there are lots of different variables". The study also included a wide range of ethnicities. During the investigation, almost 42,000 died.

Using this data, researchers found that people who drank one cup of coffee a day were 12 percent less likely to die. They saw a reduced risk of early death by diseases related to the digestive and circulatory systems.

The researchers said that finding makes sense.

Among these insights was evidence that coffee drinkers may have healthier livers and better glucose control, something the researchers uncovered by analyzing metabolic biomarkers in a subset of 14,000 people. Both studies separated the smokers and the nonsmokers, but found that it didn't change coffee's effects.

There are also potential downsides to coffee, noted Guallar, a professor at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

"I wouldn't recommend people start rushing out drinking lots of coffee", he continued, "but I think what it does suggests is drinking coffee certainly does you no harm". It may just be that healthier people drink more coffee, for example. "They have very different dietary habits and different susceptibilities - and we still find similar patterns", Setiawan said.

If coffee does help ward off certain health problems, it's not clear why.

One question that remains is how much of a role caffeine plays.

Interestingly each of the latest studies, both published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine, showed no advantage from drinking either caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee. Beside caffeine it contains polyphenols and other bioactive compounds with antioxidant properties that are good for our bodies.
