Drink Coffee for Longevity?

If you have trouble getting motivated in the morning without copious amounts of coffee, you’re far from alone. Just look at the number of people standing in line at your local Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts establishments. And that doesn’t even include all the people frequenting their local internet coffee bar or stopping at the nearby mom and pop coffee shop or brewing their java at home. While the verdict is still out on whether coffee confers more advantages or disadvantages healthwise, there is now another piece of information in coffee’s favor.

Drinking Coffee Can Help You Live Longer and Fight Disease

Coffee gives you much more than just a morning energy boost, say recent studies which point to health benefits that cover you from head to toe. They also show that the more coffee you drink throughout the day, the more health benefits your caffeine fix provides. Here's a rundown of the latest reasons for you to sit, relax, and enjoy another cup of java.

Study: People Who Drink Coffee are Healthier – Live Longer

During the 1960s and 70s, when the health food industry and health conscious consumers began to flourish, coffee was a serious no-no. Health advocates urged consumers to drink only steam treated caffeine free coffee or herbal teas that didn’t carry caffeine.

However, now that viewpoint has been shattered.

Recent long term epidemiological surveys indicate that coffee drinking is linked to longevity. And if you are somewhat suspicious of epidemiological research conclusions, there are several other animal studies to back up those claims.
