I’ll drink coffee to that!

As an avid consumer of health-related news, this middle-aged man gravitates toward news articles reporting research findings supporting my current lifestyle and preferences centered on food, drink and exercise.  This affinity of mine proves that preaching to the choir syndrome really does exist.

So the latest news catching my attention and giving me morning glee yesterday was a news article I read reporting about a new study finding that coffee lowers overall risk of death by 15 percent.

Researchers examined the associations of coffee consumption with risk of subsequent total and cause-specific mortality among over 200,000 men and women who were part of three other previous studies.

You’ll have to read more to draw your own conclusions but Pierini Fitness’ middle-aged man executive briefing of the findings are from the conclusion presented in this research’s abstract as follows:

“In conclusion, regular consumption of coffee was inversely associated with risk of total mortality and mortality due to CVD, and neurological disease. Similar associations of caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee consumption with risk of total and cause-specific mortality were found. Results from this and previous studies indicate that coffee consumption can be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle.”
