Association of Coffee Consumption With Total and Cause-Specific Morality in 3 Large Prospective Cohorts
There is an increasing awareness about the impact of food and drinks on health, and particularly the effect on mortality. Coffee is likely to be the most commonly consumed beverage worldwide.
A previous report1 has shown that coffee consumption was not linearly associated with the risk of cardiovascular disease, with a lower risk at 3-5 cups per day.
This new study2, which included more than 200,000 participants in 3 large cohort studies, has shown a reduction in total mortality associated with coffee consumption in the whole population related to cardiovascular disease with no effect on cancer.
