This is good news for those who still cherish their daily cup of coffee. Scientists say moderate consumption of one to three cups of coffee every day could reduce your risk of death from heart disease and other illnesses.
In a study reported in the American Heart Association journal Circulation, people who regularly drank moderate amounts of coffee daily – less than 5 cups per day – experienced a lower risk of deaths from cardiovascular disease, neurological diseases, Type 2 diabetes and suicide.
This latest study has further confirmed earlier studies showing that coffee indeed neither increases nor decreases the risk of lifestyle diseases. Indeed, the scientists recommend that regular consumption of coffee can be included as part of a healthy, balanced diet.
According to the researchers, the benefits are derived from the naturally occurring chemical compounds in the coffee beans.
The findings are based on data from three large ongoing studies: 74,890 women in the Nurses’ Health Study; 93,054 women in the Nurses’ Health Study 2; and 40,557 men in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study.
