No Higher Death Risk Tied to Coffee

WASHINGTON (June 16) - Long-term coffee drinking does not appear to increase a person's risk of early death and may cut a person's chances of dying from heart disease, according to a study published on Monday.

Previous studies have given a mixed picture of health effects from coffee, finding a variety of benefits and some drawbacks from the popular drink. The new study looked at people who drank caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee.

Drinking up to six cups off coffee a day does not appear to raise a person's risk of dying prematurely, according to a new study of more than 125,000 coffee drinkers in Spain and the United States.

Researchers led by Esther Lopez-Garcia of Universidad Autonoma de Madrid in Spain followed 84,214 U.S. women from 1980 to 2004 and 41,736 U.S. men from 1986 to 2004. MORE
