 Drinking Coffee Can Add Years To A Person's Life

A large study comprising of nearly half a million older adults followed for about 12 years has found that as coffee drinking increased, the risk of death decreased.

Study author Neal Freedman, PhD, MPH, National Cancer Institute, discusses the significance of these findings and the potential links between coffee drinking, caffeine consumption, and various specific causes of disease in an interview in Journal of Caffeine Research, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.

Dr. Freedman examines the relationship between coffee drinking and behaviors such as smoking and alcohol abuse, the physiological effects of caffeine on blood pressure and cardiac function, and the importance of differentiating between the effects of coffee and caffeine.

"Given the near-universal daily consumption of caffeine, Dr. Freedman's research underscores the urgent need for randomized controlled trials to identify which components of coffee and other caffeine beverages benefit or harm consumers, under what circumstances, and in relation to which health outcomes," said Jack E. James, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Caffeine Research.
