Drinking coffee in moderation is good for your health but drinking a LOT of coffee is even better.
The National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, and the Feinberg School of medicine at Northwestern University recently analyzed coffee-drinking data from the UK Biobank, a long-term study of half a million people in the U.K. aged 38 to 74.
The Biobank is a huge sampling, many orders of magnitude larger than most scientific studies. While it doesn’t involve control groups, it does track the behavior and outcomes of more than enough people to draw connections.
The results, published in JAMA Internal Medicine and summarized in Popular Sciencemagazine, were startling. Not only do coffee drinkers live longer on average than non-coffee drinkers (that was already a well-known phenomenon) but people who drink a lot of coffee tend to live longer than people who drink moderately or sparsely.
