So, in the study, the results of whichpublished in the New England Journal of Medicine, studied the effect of coffee on general and specific mortality. The number of participants in this study was 229,119 men and 173,141 women. Coffee drinkers, the findings said, had a lower risk of death during the study period (12-13 years).

In another similar study described inpublication in the European Journal of Preventative Cardiology, compared coffee consumption with the likelihood of dying from cardiovascular disease and the risk of overall mortality. 508 747 men and women (age - from 20 to 79 years) took part in the experiment for 20 years.

In general, scientific research has proven that if indrinking four to five cups of coffee a day, the risk of early death will decrease by 14 or 16 percent, respectively. And if you drink one cup daily, then the probability of death decreases by five to six percent.

In addition, coffee addicts are less likely to die from heart disease, diabetes, stroke, respiratory disease, injury, and infection, according to scientists.

Longevity is believed to be due to the presence of polyphenols in coffee.
