Do Coffee Drinkers Live Longer?

Several observational studies indicate that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of death. You may then wonder whether this means you’ll live longer if you drink a lot of coffee. What do you think LiveTribers? Do coffee drinkers live longer?

    I enjoy my coffee in many ways, percolated, bags, French press and I never think about the health aspect, but I have seen publicity about health benefits. However I think my two long blacks in the morning and one in the afternoon is adequate for my age,

    As long as the coffee is made from ground roasted beans and not from a jar of instant coffee or too much sugar in Your cup, the yeah, coffee is a good choice for a beverage to help live longer.

    There is a difference between Instant and real coffee. I use Ground coffee in a plunger. Its the ground coffee fresh from the beans itself that has the most benefits. And its tea that has more caffeine then real coffee and Real coffee has more antioxidants then tea. Its coke that is the bad one for you liver as its not a natural source of caffeine. And i usually get headaches if i drink to much instant coffee.

    In my personal opinion, coffee (caffeine) affects your liver, but really I don't believe that it will give you longer life in this planet.

    I don't drink coffee at all but I know alot of people who do and most say they wouldn't have a clue if it was good or bad for you, what they say though is what would their life be like without it. Makes you wonder if it's an addiction.

    I feel we are just as likely to die but Im sure both tea and coffee drinkers are possibly sure to be healthy people but then there's also alcohol drinkers that are casual drinkers of Wines are the same. Everything we indulge in may have great benefits for us so long as we don't abuse and in moderation

    it depends on the coffee quality and moderate use, too much caffeine is not good for the heart or blood pressure and can lead to electrolyte imbalance, i.e, low Potssium. instant coffee appears to hasten osteoporosis in the elderly.

    Think that people who drink coffee also socialise more than those people who don't drink coffee. It is probably the combination of the two as well as keeping active in mind as well as body that gives this longer living, less dementia effect.

    I believe coffee is a good stress relief. It offers comfort in its taste, the social aspect it offers with friends get togethers, family catch ups, and work place conversations - over drinking a cup of coffee together. Providing consumption is kept in moderation it can be very beneficial in a healthier and happier lifestyle. However in over indulgence (like many things/food/drinks in life) it may be harmful.

    Surely it would depend on what you have in the coffee. If you have 6 coffees a day and 2 sugars in each plus milk then that is a lot of sugar and may push your body towards diabetes

    Probably depends on how much coffee - too much would degrade sleep quality and keep your system too stressed and wear your body down over time

    Well, if the latest research announced this morning 16/11/21 is to be believed, Yes they do. People who drink 3-4 cups of coffee (and tea) have a lower risk of stroke, heart disease, or dementia, than those that don't!

    Think that's because they are socially active as well as drinking coffee.

    Coffee is definitely a lifesaver to those who hang around people who drink coffee. Without the coffee there would be many more homicides?

    I go by the mantra "anything in moderation". I drink coffee and sometimes late at night and no problems sleeping. My kidneys are great as is my blood pressure. I am in my 70's. I smoked for years heavily and my lungs are healthy. I think sometimes it is the luck of the draw which way your health goes and it can depend largely on your family history also.

    Despite all the bs Coffee is NOT an overly safe beverage , especially if over consumed. Refer to any Lancet orJems article. It can cause bone density issues, sleep issues, high blood pressure and kidney issues. Its a legal and socially acceptable form of stimulant drug abuse.....much like cigarettes and good old booze!!!

    Anecdotal from an interested party or are there tested methods over years printed in medical journals proving this wild statement?
