Interestingly, it showed that even drinking just one cup a day was linked to a lower risk of early death, and even more interestingly, it didn't matter whether the coffee was caffeinated or not.

'We observed an inverse association for coffee drinking with mortality, including among participants who reported drinking at least one cup per day, up to eight or more cups per day, as well as those drinking filtered, instant and decaffeinated coffee, ' said Dr. Erikka Loftfield, the study's lead investigator and a research fellow at the National Cancer Institute, in an email to Time. Yet the USA findings suggest the health benefits extend to the decaffeinated variety, without the pitfalls of caffeine. And a study of the coffee consumption by almost a half-million of them found that coffee drinkers were less likely to die over a 10-year period.

Another study, conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health, found that women who drank four or more cups of coffee were 20 percent less likely to suffer from depression.

The results do not prove that your coffee pot is a fountain of youth, nor are they a reason for abstainers to start drinking coffee, said Alice Lichtenstein, a nutrition expert at Tufts University in the USA who was not involved in the research.

The findings, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, add to the growing evidence coffee can be part of a healthy diet, the authors say.

"Coffee makes you happy, it gives you something to look forward to in the morning", he said.

But for Taylor, it is possible to have too much of a good thing. "Otherwise I get a little hyper". The low participation rate means those involved may have been healthier than the general United Kingdom population, the researchers said.

Van Uytvanck knocks Muguruza out of Wimbledon
Defeat for the world No. 3 ensured that six of the top 10 seeds in the women's draw have failed to make it into round three. Muguruza was joined by 2017 men's singles finalist Marin Cilic, who lost to Guido Pella 6-3, 6-1, 4-6, 6-7, 5-7.

Researchers examined data from the U.K. Biobank: a decade-long genetic study that requires subjects to provide blood samples and complete a detailed health and lifestyle questionnaire.

The European Food Safety Agency advises that people drink no more than four cups a day, saying those who do run the risk of anxiety, sleeplessness, heart rhythm disturbances or heart failure.

Coffee has overtaken tea as Britain's favourite drink, with an estimated 55?million cups consumed every day. In much of the research, benefits have been identified in drinkers of decaf and regular coffee, which suggests that the advantageous ingredient isn't the caffeine.

14,200 out of these people had died during the 10 year follow-up. And when all causes of death were combined, even slow caffeine metabolisers had a longevity boost.

As in previous studies, coffee drinkers were more likely than abstainers to drink alcohol and smoke, but the researchers took those factors into account, and coffee drinking seemed to cancel them out.

In the follow up study ten years later, 14,200 of those who took park had passed away. But previous studies have shown that extra calories and fat are not good.
