If you love having a few cups of joe or more daily, there’s some good news for you. A recent research has linked higher consumption of coffee with reduced risk of early death. According to this observational study, in which almost 20,000 people participated, coffee should be a part of diet in healthy individuals.

Coffee is consumed all over the world and usually in good quantities, too. Previous studies had hinted at an inverse correlation between drinking coffee and all-cause mortality. However, how this plays out in Mediterranean people has never been looked into before.

The aim of the latest study was to check how drinking coffee affects all-cause mortality risk in Mediterranean individuals who are in their middle years. More than 22,0000 individuals participated in this study.

The researchers noted that drinking 4 or more cups of coffee every day was linked to 64 percent reduced risk of death from all causes, compared to people with zero or very little coffee consumption. What’s more, the all-cause mortality risk fell by 22 percent for every 2 extra cups a day.
