How much to drink?
The sweet spot appeared to be a coffee intake of four to five cups per day.
Studies found that at this quantity, men and women had a 12 and 16 percent reduced risk of early death, respectively.
However, even moderate coffee consumption of just one cup per day was associated with a five to six percent lowered risk of early death highlighting that even a little bit is enough to have an effect.
Looking at particular causes of death, researchers found that coffee drinkers were less likely to die from infections, injuries, accidents, respiratory disease, diabetes, stroke, and heart disease.
