NEW STUDY FROM HARVARD

Researchers followed more than 200,000 doctors and nurses over a 30 year period.

ALL abstained from smoking.

Periodic questionnaires and physical exams were completed over this period.

It included questions about their diet and behavior.

A CUP OF COFFEE A DAY …

The results were as followed:

1 cup of coffee a day – 6% reduced risk of death

2 – 3 cups of coffee a day – 8% reduced risk of death

3 – 5 cups of coffee a day – 15% reduced risk of death

< 5 cups per day – 12% reduced risk of death

DRINKING COFFEE REDUCES RISK OF DEADLY CONDITIONS

Coffee drinking was linked to a reduced risk of death from heart disease, stroke, diabetes and neurological diseases.

However, there is no indication it reduces the risk of developing cancer.

HARVARD UNIVERSITY CLARIFIES

Researchers cite that their study is purely observational, not causal.
