Study: Coffee Drinking Linked to Longer Life

Amanda Gardner, CNN:

Drinking a daily cup of coffee — or even several cups — isn’t likely to harm your health, and it may even lower your risk of dying from chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, a new study in the New England Journal of Medicine suggests. […]

Even moderate coffee consumption was linked to better survival odds. Drinking a single cup per day — which was much more common than a six-cup-a-day habit — was associated with a 6% lower risk of dying among men and a 5% lower risk among women.

Like I needed another reason to enjoy a good cup of coffee.
