It wasn’t that long ago that scientists told us to reduce the amount of coffee we drank but new research released July 2017 by the University of Southern California is telling us it’s ok to drink up.
The study found that people who drank one cup of coffee per day were 12% less likely to die than those that didn’t drink coffee. Those who drank two to three cups per day were found to have an 18% less chance of death.
Lower mortality was present regardless of whether people drank regular or decaffeinated coffee, suggesting the association is not tied to caffeine, said Veronica W. Setiawan, lead author of the study and an associate professor of preventive medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of USC.
“We cannot say drinking coffee will prolong your life, but we see an association,” Setiawan said. “If you like to drink coffee, drink up! If you’re not a coffee drinker, then you need to consider if you should start.”
