Large Study Finds Coffee Drinkers Live Longer

>From the study:

Association of Coffee Drinking with Total
and Cause-Specific Mortality

Inverse associations were
observed for deaths due to heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke,
injuries and accidents,
diabetes, and infections, but not for deaths due to cancer. Results were
similar in subgroups, including persons who had never smoked and
persons who reported
very good to excellent health at baseline.

In this large prospective study, coffee consumption was inversely
associated with
total and cause-specific mortality. Whether this was a causal or
associational finding
cannot be determined from our data.
