According to two international studies published on Monday, Coffee followers, and fanatics often say intake the bitter liquid makes life value living, but the drinking of high caffeine coffee habitually may help them live longer. A U.S and European reports published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, unsuccessful to show that coffee was truly the aim that many drinkers seemed to have longer lives.
Rather, different studies which were observational in nature, meaning they presented an overtone between coffee-drinking and a partiality toward longevity but immobile short of proving cause and effect. The first study, conducted by IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) and Imperial College London, experimented on above half a million people of different 10 countries in Europe.
The study results show that those people drank daily three cups of coffee live longer as compared to non-coffee drinkers. The author of Marc Gunter of the IARC, formerly at Imperial’s School of Public Health said:
“We found that higher coffee consumption was associated with a lower risk of death from any cause, and specifically for circulatory diseases, and digestive diseases.”
“Importantly, these results were similar across all of the 10 European countries, with variable coffee drinking habits and customs.”
The second study conducted about the effect of drinking coffee included 180,000 participants of different ethnic backgrounds in the U.S. It established benefits to durability whether the coffee was caffeinated or decaffeinated. Coffee drinkers have the lower risk of death due to cancer, diabetes, kidney, heart disease, stroke, and respiratory diseases.
Those people drink one cup of coffee regularly were having 12% less likely chance to die as compared to those who didn’t drink coffee. Those people have 18% less risk of death who drink two to three cups every day.
“We cannot say drinking coffee will prolong your life, but we see an association,” said lead author Veronica Setiawan, an associate professor of preventive medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California.
“If you like to drink coffee, drink up! If you’re not a coffee drinker, then you need to consider if you should start.”
A Revered Drink
Coffee is the most famous drink in the world. Almost 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed every day. Different studies have hailed the benefits of coffee-drinking, saying the beverage tells anti-oxidants, may develop liver function, and reduce infection. Other than that, coffee is not suitable and also has some risks for some people like pregnant woman and children are urged to avoid caffeine. Last year a report issued from the IARC and showed drinking hot beverages, tea, coffee, or otherwise – is one possible origin of cancer of the esophagus, the tube that runs from the throat to the stomach.
Experts Urge Caution
Some experts who were not tangled in the most recent studies counseled caution in construing the results. For example, the European study included people who had cancer, diabetes, or heart disease. It is the meaning it took a measure of people over 35 who were already generally healthy.
Finally, it found symbols of a link between women who drank large quantities of coffee and a higher risk of Cancer death, but moderated this finding and saying it “may be spurious.”
The “conclusions will not lead me to start drinking coffee or to recommend people drink more coffee as a way to lessen their risks for heart disease,” – said Naveed Sattar, professor of metabolic medicine at the University of Glasgow.
“I remain unconvinced that the link between coffee and heart disease represents a true cause and effect relationship and that coffee is truly protective, regardless of how large a study suggests this.”
Naveed said that one weakness of the research is the fact that many people stop drinking coffee or less of it. When they are sick, a “bias is very hard to fully overcome.”
