Daily Jolt of Java May Bring Longer Life
By Amy Norton
Here's news to perk up your day: Drinking coffee might help you live a little longer, two new studies suggest.
Researchers found that daily coffee drinkers were up to 18 percent less likely to die over the next 10 to 16 years, versus non-drinkers.
The findings -- based on over 700,000 middle-aged and older adults -- add to the growing list of benefits linked to moderate coffee drinking.
Studies have already tied the habit to lower risks of various diseases -- from heart disease and type 2 diabetes, to liver cancer, to neurological diseases like Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis.
