Coffee will not save your life, but it won’t kill you either.
Thomas Jefferson once said coffee is “the favorite drink of the civilised world“, and apparently, according to studies, it also keeps you alive.
A recent study published by the Annals of Internal Medicine proved participants in the highest quartile of coffee consumption had statistically significantly lower all-cause mortality compared to non-consumers, and, although it is not proof enough to say coffee prevents death, the regular daily dose of coffee does not hurt your daily lifestyle and health.
The final conclusions reached by the American College of Physicians state that coffee drinking is associated with reduced risk for death from various causes, but particularly from circulatory diseases and digestive illnesses. This relationship did not vary by country or region.
To arrival at this final statement, scientists from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the Imperial College London took on a 16-year investigation where they analysed coffee and its effect consumption related to the risk of death on 521,330 people aged 35 and over across ten countries in Europe; these participants were interviewed about their diets and caffeine habits. After 16 years of studying the process, the specialists determined that those who drink more coffee daily, seem to be more inmune to a list of illnesses.
COFFEE: AN INDUSTRY ON THE RISE
Revenue of the coffee and snack shops industry in the U.S. reached its biggest peak in the past 14 years as it collected 32.46 billion dollars during 2016, contrasting to the 31.12 total in 2015 and 30.24 in 2014.
Despite showing a notorious peak for the past years, the U.S. does not rank with the top coffee-drinking nations, as Finland, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and neighbors Canada lead as the top-ten-coffee-drinking-nations of 2017.
