The study authors found that during the 7-year follow-up period, participants who drank unsweetened coffee (no matter how much) were 16 to 21 percent less likely to die than participants who drank unsweetened coffee. did not drink coffee. The largest reduction, with a 29% lower risk of death, was seen in people who drank between 2.5 and 4.5 cups a day.
“These findings are far from definitive,” said Naveed Sattar, a professor of metabolic medicine at the University of Glasgow, who did not participate in the study. “This is because coffee drinkers are generally more affluent and have a healthier life than non-drinkers. I would suggest that people stick to coffee or tea, preferably sugar-free, and try to do all the other healthy things like moving more, eating and sleeping better. »
The above results are confirmed by another British study. Indeed, almost 500,000 participants were divided into three groups: those who do not drink coffee every day (or 22% of participants), moderate drinkers (or 58% of participants) and those who exceed three cups per day (or 19% of participants).
At the end of the experiment, the researchers found that moderate drinkers had a 12% lower chance of dying prematurely. They have a 17% lower chance of dying from cardiovascular disease, and the risk of a stroke also decreases by 21% compared to people who do not drink coffee at all.
