Drinking two or three cups of coffee on regular basis can lower down the risk of death occurring due to cancer, stroke and diabetes, a new study found. People who consume a cup of coffee everyday are on the safer side as compared to those who do not drink coffee.
Drinking a cup of coffee can lower down the risk of death by 12% and those who drink in much higher quantity reduce the chance of mortality by 18%.
One of the researchers suggested that the association is not tied to caffeine, and lower mortality rate was found among people drank regular or decaffeinated coffee.
One of the researchers said: “Coffee contains a lot of antioxidants and phenolic compounds that play an important role in cancer prevention.”
