Getting a third or fourth day coffee can pay in the long run.
A study of nearly 20,000 people, presented by Spanish researchers during the European Society of Cardiology Congress in Barcelona, found that drinking four cups of coffee daily significantly decreased of the danger of death.
Hospital researchers followed 19,896 participants for an average of 10 years. People who drink at least four cups of coffee each day have 64 percent lower risk of death than those who have never or rarely drank it.
The study also found that in people aged 45 or older, two additional doses of joe each day reduced the risk to death by 22 percent.
“This could have been due to a stronger collaboration with older participants,” says Dr. Adela Navarro, a cardiologist at Hospital de Navarra, about that search in a statement. “Our findings suggest that drinking four cups of coffee per day can be part of a healthy diet for a healthy person.”
During the 10-year period, 337 participants died, researchers said.
