Drinking three to five cups of coffee a day could help people live longer.
This is according to a new research.
According to the study conducted by Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee can lower the risk of death from cardiovascular disease, neurological disease such as Parkinson’s, type 2 diabetes and even suicide.
Reports say “Bioactive compounds in coffee help to reduce insulin resistance and systematic inflammation.
Mr Ding also led a study in 2013 that suggested that moderate consumption of caffeine lowered the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
The 2013 study’s conclusion that there was no elevated risk of CVD for excessive coffee drinkers is however supported by the new research, which has been published in science journal Circulation.
The consumption of coffee was assessed using food questionnaires every four years.
