Full of antioxidants and minerals, drinking more coffee can help you live longer.
If you’re a coffee lover, then you’ll be glad to hear that your addiction might be leading you to a longer life.
According to recent studies, those who consumed the higher amounts of coffee were at 12% less risk of death from cancer, as well as cardiovascular, digestive and respiratory conditions .
Men Benefit From Higher Coffee Consumption
Interestingly, the studies found that women didn’t benefit from the same coffee intake as men.
It was previously thought the 3-4 cups of coffee per day was the ‘sweet spot’ for everyone, but this study shows that the more coffee men consume, the better.
However, while women benefited from a slightly lower reduced risk of death overall (at 7%), their risk of dying from cancer was increased the more coffee they consumed .
So if you’re a bro, then drink all the black stuff that you like. But maybe advise your girlfriend/wife to limit their intake…
Nationality Didn’t Affect Results
In this study, the participants represented 10 different nationalities. But the good news is that this variable didn’t affect the results.
So regardless of your roots, if your a bro, then drinking more coffee is beneficial for you.
This is clearly stated in the conclusion of the study: “Coffee drinking was associated with reduced risk for death from various causes. This relationship did not vary by country.”
Summary: Coffee Can Help You Live Longer, Especially Men
We mentioned that women have a greater risk of dying from cancer when consuming higher amounts of coffee. However, this can be balanced out by the fact that they have a 7% lower risk of dying overall (including from cardiovascular, digestive and respiratory causes).
As a result, the findings of these recent studies prove that everyone is helped by higher coffee intake. But it seems undeniable that men are the ones who benefit the most.
