Do Coffee Drinkers Live Longer?

A report published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that coffee drinkers might live longer than people who don’t drink coffee, but it is not known whether coffee is the reason. Researchers found that men and women between the ages of 50-71 who frequently drank either caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee were less likely to die from conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and respiratory disease than people who shared similar risk factors, such as smoking or lack of exercise, but did not drink coffee. Male coffee drinkers were 10% less likely to die from these conditions, while females were 15% less likely. One possible conclusion was that coffee might contain antioxidants, substances that can help the body fight infection and disease.

More about coffee:

  • After petroleum, coffee is the most valuable traded commodity worldwide in terms of total value traded.

  • Kopi Luwak is considered the rarest coffee in the world and can sell for the equivalent of $50 US Dollars a cup. It is produced in Indonesia from coffee berries that were eaten and excreted by the Asian palm civet, which is similar to a weasel.

  • Americans drink the most coffee worldwide — about 450 million cups each day.
