The recent research which is presented today at the ESC Congress elaborates that the more coffee you will consume, it will increase your life means lower down the risk of early death. This study which is the observational study, about 20, 000 members recommends that coffee will make the life of the people healthy, so consider coffee among healthy diet.
Dr. Adela Navarro who is a cardiologist at the Hospital de Navarra, Pamplona, Spain said about coffee: “Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages around the world. Previous studies have suggested that drinking coffee might be inversely associated with all-cause mortality but this has not been investigated in a Mediterranean country.”
The reason behind this study was to inspect the link between the intake of coffee and the risk of the mortality in the middle-aged Mediterranean cohort. This study was piloted within the context of the Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra (SUN) Project, a long-standing prospective cohort study in more than 22,500 Spanish University graduates that started in 1999.
The SUN project analysis accompanied 19, 896 participants and their average age of registration were 37.7 years old. Before entering into the study, the willing participants completed a formerly authorized semi-quantitative food regularity questionnaire. The reason behind this questionnaire is to gain the information about the drinking of coffee, routine, and socio demographic characteristics, previous health conditions, and anthropometric measurements.
Patients were followed-up for an average of ten years. Information on mortality was obtained from study participants and their families, postal authorities, and the National Death Index. Cox regression models were used to estimate hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for incident mortality according to baseline total coffee consumption adjusted for potential confounders.
The members were followed-up for about ten years and the information about their life and death is gained by their family members, postal authorities, and the National Death Index. And 337 members died in the time period of ten years. The result which is gained by the researchers was that the participants who take at least four cups of coffee per day had a 64% lower risk of death than the members or participants who never consumed coffee.
Dr. Navarro concluded that “Our findings suggest that drinking four cups of coffee each day can be part of a healthy diet in healthy people.”
