If you drink these types of coffee, you could have a lower death risk – CNN
A new study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine found that people who drank 1.5 to 3.5 cups of coffee a day had a 30% lower death risk compared with non-coffee drinkers.
The researchers adjusted for sociodemographic, lifestyle and clinical factors to find that smoking, physical activity, education level and dietary habits affected the results.
The average coffee drinker puts in 1 teaspoon of sugar, and the benefits of coffee aren’t negated.
The researchers were not able to draw any conclusions for people who used artificial sweetener in their coffee. They recommend being cautious about higher calorie specialty coffees.
Different types of coffee have different health profiles, depending on how they’re produced. Some contain phenolic compounds that are believed to be beneficial.
Robusta coffee has a higher phenolic content than arabica coffee, and depending on how you brew it, it can contain high levels of diterpenes, which can increase your risk of cardiovascular disease.
