For many adults, drinking coffee has become an essential part of their busy lives. At the same time, critics have warned us that too much coffee consumption may be bad for us. However, new research from Spain may prove otherwise.
A new study, carried out by the European Society of Cardiology, observed approximately 20,000 participants over a period of almost 10 years. The study concluded that those who drank several cups of coffee per day had a significantly lower risk of dying than those who did not consume the beverage. However, the increased benefits applied more to the older members of the study than those younger than 45.
Researcher Dr. Adela Navarro, of the Hospital de Navarra, said of the results: “Our findings suggest that drinking four cups of coffee each day can be part of a healthy diet in healthy people.”
