How to Live Longer? Drink More Coffee
by Tom Emerick
A study by the NIH found that men who were heavy coffee drinkers were 10% less likely to die during the study; women, 15%.
This idea is taken from The Doctor Weighs In post by Dov Michaeli.
As the article says, “Coffee drinkers have a reduced risk of dying prematurely from all causes, and consequently live longer.” Coffee is a “vice” that is most worthy, and one to be embraced.
Some health attributes of coffee include reduced risks of death from:
- Cardiac arrhythmia
- Type 2 diabetes
- Lung disease
That’s quite a list. The good news is that a 50-cent cup of coffee works as well as a five-dollar cup. Any amount of coffee is better than none. According to results of a study by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), “Compared with people who drank no coffee at all, men and women who drank six or more cups per day were 10% and 15% less likely, respectively, to die during the study.”
Don’t tell wellness true believers about this. They may want to start charging coffee-free employees a higher health payroll deduction.
