Hey, coffee drinkers, study shows it may make you live longer

The researchers identified the half a million participants through the United Kingdom biobank, an initiative to enroll approximately 9.2 million people, with long-term follow-up, and create a large database of individual, genetic sequencing to further understand the role of DNA on disease and treatment.

Interestingly, even people who admitted knocking back eight cups or more a day were less likely to die than those who refrained from drinking coffee at all.

The researchers found that coffee drinking was inversely associated with all-cause mortality.

Most were coffee drinkers, nearly one-third or 154,000 people drank two to three cups daily and 10,000 drank at least eight cups daily.

It does however provide further evidence that coffee drinking can be part of a healthy diet and offers reassurance to coffee drinkers.

Walter Willett from the Harvard School of Public Health reveals in 2015 that the coffee bean is actually packed with nutrients and phyto-chemicals such as lignans, quinides, and magnesium. The benefit was seen with instant, ground, decaf, and in people with genetic glitches affecting how their bodies use caffeine.

The inverse association with mortality continued right up to eight cups of coffee a day, suggesting we shouldn't worry too much about overdoing our coffee consumption.

Liberty Island being evacuated because of protest against ICE
While the policy was abandoned, it is still unclear how and when some 2,000 migrant children will be reunited with their parents. The Statue of Liberty has always been a welcoming symbol for immigrants and refugees coming to the U.S.

National Hurricane Center monitoring two tropical disturbances
Should this system strengthen into a tropical storm, the next name on the tropical storm and hurricane naming list is Beryl. But, forecasters said, the storms will run into a frontal system by Sunday that would limit any additional development.

Manchester United set to complete shock signing of goalkeeper Lee Grant
The goalkeeper told ManUtd.com : "Moving to Manchester United has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember". However, his chances in the first-team are likely to be limited, with De Gea and Romero ahead in the pecking order.

In many studies, it hasn't mattered whether coffee was caffeinated or not, which indicates that many benefits may not be connected to caffeine - there are all kinds of other antioxidant-rich compounds in coffee that could have an effect.

For many of us, a day hasn't properly started until we've had our first cup of coffee. There have been however some studies that show that regular coffee intake may not be good for health. "Such people would be better to avoid too much coffee, or move toward decaffeinated choices, that this study has shown still have beneficial associations". These people are known as slow metabolizers of coffee. People who drank one cup per day were 12% less likely to die.

For the study, researchers 10 years ago invited nine million British adults to take part; 498,134 women and men aged 40 to 69 agreed. So, the benefit of drinking more than 8 cups of coffee over around 4 may be small.

The second main way in which the study builds upon past research is that it took into account mortality incidence with respect to genetic differences in participants' metabolizing of caffeine.

Other studies have found coffee drinkers have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, several cancers, including colorectal, breast, uterine and liver, and Parkinson's disease.

Adding toppings to coffee like cream, sugar and whipped cream can also vastly increase calories, and possibly negate it's positive effects.
