Drinking three to five cups of coffee a day might help you live longer, according to new research.
Moderate coffee consumption reduces the risk of dying prematurely from heart disease, neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, and Type 2 diabetes, scientists found.
It also seems to lower the risk of suicide – but no association was seen with rates of cancer death.
Whether or not the coffee drunk contained caffeine made no difference. The benefits are thought to be linked to other plant compounds in coffee besides the stimulant.
