It’s official! Coffee is good for you, as is red wine, dark chocolate, beer… | Coffee

Name: Coffee.

Age: Debatable. Legend has it that an Ethiopian goatherd named Kaldi discovered the stimulating effects of coffee in the 9th century. More credible accounts mention coffee consumption in the 15th century on the Arabian peninsula. But this is less about the coffee, more about the coffee drinker.

EITHERso: age coffee drinker? Older.

older than who? The non-coffee drinker.

When? when they die Research has found that drinking two to three cups of coffee (ground, instant, decaf) could reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and therefore be linked to a longer life.

Oh God. It’s one of those stories, right?? appearing in a certain type of newspaper every other day, based on the opinions of a couple of people… Published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, written by Professor Peter Kistler of the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute…

And how many people? 449,563 between the ages of 40 and 69 completed a questionnaire, with a follow-up 12 and a half years later…

Probably the first question the follow up was: are you dead? They found that 27,809 (6.2%) had died during that period. Interestingly, compared to not drinking coffee, drinking two to three cups a day was associated with a 27%, 14%, and 11% lower likelihood of death during the study period for ground, decaffeinated, and instant coffee, respectively. .

Caffeine, come home! Kistler says it’s likely one of many other biological components responsible for the positive relationship between coffee consumption, cardiovascular disease, and survival.

wait though: it was nothing else five minutes earlier? You’re probably thinking of the study that found that drinking two pints of beer a day could cut your risk of dementia by a third.

Beer! She didn’t even know about it. She was thinking of red wine. Oh yeah, an old favorite, with numerous and frequent studies finding health benefits, including improved heart, gut, and brain health. All of which comes with the usual warnings about the dangers of overdoing it.

Also chocolate? Yes, but not so much Milkybars, more dark chocolate, nutritious and rich in antioxidants.

It’s almost as if the men and women in white coats are studying all the things we like but think are unhealthy and then discover that it’s not so bad after all. – It might even be good for you. It’s okay, but who’s complaining? Until someone claims that a child’s metabolic health can be improved by a light to moderate meth habit…

Gave: “Cappuccino please, with a dash of extra longevity to go.”

do not tell: “…and a pint of beer while you’re at it. Better safe than sorry.”
