Another similar study, described in a publication 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 studies have shown that if you drink 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.
