Drinking more coffee could lead to a longer life, studies say

Both studies took into account smoking and other factors that could have affected the results.

Dr. Veronica Wendy Setiawan is the lead author of the study and an associate professor of preventive medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of USC.

"Coffee contains a lot of antioxidants and phenolic compounds that play an important role in cancer prevention", Setiawan points out.

Sattar said that one disadvantage of the research was that the fact that people stop drinking coffee - or drink less of it - when they are ill, a "bias is very hard to fully overcome".

Good news for coffee lovers!

Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world. They filled in questionnaires regarding their lifestyle and diets, including coffee consumption.

A report from the IARC a year ago that said drinking very hot beverages - coffee, tea or otherwise - is one of the likely causes of cancer of the oesophagus, the tube that runs from the throat to the stomach. "But the basic idea is that we are increasingly reassured that coffee is not harmful". The studies and the editorial were published online Monday in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

A team of researchers from the National Cancer Institute, USC and the University of Hawaii teamed up to research the habits of people who drink coffee. A total of two studies, which involves large and diverse participant groups, were conducted and it was revealed that the effect were higher in the participant who drank more coffee, whether it was caffeinated or not.

Star Wars Battlefront II beta set for October
EA, via the PlayStation Blog , has announced the details of the Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta , which begins in early October. Those who have pre-ordered a copy of the upcoming title will be able to access the beta on October 4th.

"Whilst the authors have done their best (and better than most) to limit this potential bias, such a bias is very hard to fully overcome".

Imperial researchers evaluated data from 10 European countries of over half a million people aged 35 plus.

After 16 years of follow up, nearly 42,000 people in the study had died from a range of conditions including cancer, circulatory diseases, heart failure and stroke.

They say this is because coffee might increase the chance of the baby being born too small. Women with the biggest coffee habit, however, had an increased risk of death from ovarian cancer.

Furthermore, the findings were applicable across all cultures involved in the study, including African-Americans, Japanese-Americans, Native Hawaiians, Latinos, and whites.

The study is important because "lifestyle patterns and disease risks can vary substantially across racial and ethnic backgrounds, and findings in one group may not necessarily apply to others". The follow ups were conducted for more than 16 years.

Similarly, the U.S. study found that those who drank one cup of coffee a day were 12 per cent less likely to have passed away during the study, while those who drank three cups were 18 per cent less likely.

So is it really true that for every cup of coffee you drink during the day you will live two years longer? A steaming cup in the morning can help you face the day, a sweating glass of iced coffee will perk you up in the afternoon heat, and a warm mug after dinner helps settle your meal. Two or three cups lowered the risk by 18 percent.
