Apparently we all need to drink MORE coffee!! Good enough for us…

Drinking at least six cups of coffee every day could decrease your risks of early death, a new study has revealed.

Researchers say that those who drink six or seven cups of coffee per day are 16 percent less likely to die from any disease over a 10-year period than those who never have coffee, shares Daily Mail.

The researchers, who hail from various institutions including the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health, say they hope their findings provide further reassurance that coffee can be part of a healthy diet.

For the study, the team tracked almost 500,000 Britons between ages 38 and 73 from 2006 to 2016.

The researchers asked them how many cups of coffee they drank per day, including the type: decaffeinated, ground or instant.

The researchers, who published their results in JAMA on Monday, found that those whose coffee intake was high fared the best.

Those who drank eight cups or more per day saw their death rates cut by 14 percent, and it was raised to 16 percent among those who drank six to seven cups.

The protective effect was also seen among moderate and light coffee drinkers – but to a lesser degree.

Two to five cups, one cup per day, or less than one cup per day reduced early death rates by 12, eight and six percent, respectively.

So who wants another cuppa?

  • I really dont agree with this study at all.
    Thats a lot of coffee to be consuming per day


  • Too much coffee which is so high in caffeine can cause heart palpitations and make you feel as though you are having a heart attack. The same applies to sports drinks that contain caffeine.


  • When I worked night shift I’d have at least 6 cups of coffee a day, now I drink 3 – 5 cups a day. I’m going to have to increase my coffee intake. Oh well. If I have to


  • Wow, that’s a lot of coffee. My normal is 2 cups of coffee a day – morning and afternoon. This can sometimes stretch to 3 if I’m out with girlfriends. I do love my coffee but can’t imagine drinking that much of it in one day.


  • I love coffee, I used to drink atleast six a day.. these six cups a day lead to me getting svt (super ventricular tachycardia) to the point that my heart would beat so fast o would faint. I gave up coffee all together after a few weeks of constant scary attacks and severe chest pain. Giving up the coffee reduced the severity of these attacks. I had to end up going on medication to control the svt, and it is all under control now so I am drinking coffee again but no more than 2-3 cups a day max as otherwise my heart starts to play up again even whilst on the medication. I looooooove coffee but it can also be very bad for you.. advertising for people to drink 6 cups a day is going to have a lot of consequences to the ones who follow.


  • Why doesn’t MOM put in the links to the research before posting? I find it hard to believe that so many cups are going to be good for you when your liver has to work so hard to filter it and causes anxiety and sleep problems for many. I used to be addicted, and I say this because I could not function normally without coffee throughout the day. Once I gave it up all my anxiety, sleep problems and running to the toilet problems all disappeared. These types of research are almost always funded by coffee producers and coffee is big business. Otherwise they would also warn that coffee can be a problem for a lot of people.


  • Yes, bring on the coffee and the 70% chocolate.

    • I love your way of thinking – coffee and chocolate! :)


  • I love coffee , but 6 cups a day is way to much.


  • Am a coffee lover and this is good news to me I normally have 4 cups a day


  • Great news for my husband who loves coffee but not so much for me eho doesn’t drink it at all.


  • I love my morning coffee!


  • Oh my! I don’t drink coffee at all. Maybe I should rethink that! :-)


  • Sweet music to my ears! I love coffee and maybe I will forever! ;)
