Coffee drinking is associated with increased longevity

impact of coffee subtypes on incident cardiovascular disease, arrhythmias, and mortality: long-term outcomes from the UK Biobank | European Journal of Preventive Cardiology | Oxford Academic

The research team collected health data from 449,563 people enrolled in the UK Biobank to investigate the relationship between coffee drinking and cardiovascular disease and mortality risk. The data also included the results of a questionnaire on ``How many cups of coffee do you drink every day'' and ``Which of instant coffee, hand-ground coffee, or decaffeinated coffee do you usually drink?''.

The analysis found that subjects who drank two to three cups of coffee a day had the lowest risk of death. By type of coffee, instant coffee reduced the risk of death by 11%, hand-ground coffee by 27%, and decaffeinated coffee by 14% compared to non-coffee drinkers.

Similarly, drinking two to three cups of coffee a day was found to lower the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Compared to non-coffee drinkers, instant coffee reduced the risk by 9%, hand-ground coffee by 10%, and decaffeinated coffee by 6%.

All types of coffee reduced the risk of death and the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, but the risk of developing arrhythmias was not reduced in subjects who drank decaffeinated coffee, and two to three cups of instant coffee per day. and 17% for those who drank 4-5 cups of hand-ground coffee per day.

``Drinking instant coffee, hand-ground coffee, and decaffeinated coffee was associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality,'' said Peter Kistler, a member of the research team. suggests that drinking coffee should be considered part of a healthy lifestyle, ”he said, emphasizing the longevity-extending effects of coffee. Regarding the difference in risk reduction depending on the type of coffee, he said, ``Caffeine is the most widely known constituent of coffee, but coffee contains more than 100 biologically active ingredients. Our findings suggest that non-caffeine components are also associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality.'
