Study confirms what coffee drinkers know: black beverage good for you...
A new study that indicates coffee drinkers are less likely to die from heart or respiratory disease, stroke, diabetes, injuries, accidents or infections, according to the Associated Press.
It does not matter whether you drink regular or decaf, the study said, you still get the benefits.
Of the 402,260 participants, about 42,000 drank no coffee. About 15,000 drank six cups or more a day, but most drank two or three cups.
By 2008, about 52,000 of them had died.
Compared to those who drank no coffee, men who had two or three cups a day were 10% less likely to die at any age.
Women at any age were about 13% less likely to die.
The strongest effect was in women who had four or five cups a day -- a 16% lower risk of death, the AP reported.
