How to Live Longer? Drink More Coffee

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
  • Dementia
  • Pneumonia
  • Lung disease
  • Accidents
  • Strokes

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.
