According to studies one cup of coffee adding a year to your life.


The conclusion of a preliminary study suggests that coffee is associated with a lower risk of death in the next 10 years.


The research took place at the European Society of Cardiology Congress, in Barcelona.


Researchers investigated the association between coffee consumption and risk of death. The observational study involved about 20,000 middle-aged people from the Mediterranean region. The participants were 37 years old, on average, at the start of the study and were followed for approximately 10 years.


At the beginning, the participants completed a survey about their lifestyle, overall health, diet, and coffee consumption. The researchers also collected socio-demographic information, such as age, gender, and ethnicity.


During the research, the researchers tracked the participants using information from their families, updates from the post office and a national death index.


Over the course of the next decade, 337 of the participants died. And those who drank at least four cups of coffee a day had a 64 percent lower risk of death from any cause than those who drank little or no coffee on a regular basis, the study authors said.


After examining additional data, the researchers said they found the benefit of drinking coffee was even more notable among the participants who were 45 or older. Among these folks, drinking two extra cups of coffee a day was linked with a 30 percent lower risk of death during the follow-up period.
