Study Finds Decaf and Instant Coffee Leads to Longer Life

According to a recent study, drinking decaffeinated, ground, and instant coffee was linked to a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease and early death.

Coffee: still delicious and reportedly healthy for us. The risk of cardiovascular disease and early mortality may be decreased by consuming instant coffee, decaffeinated, and ground, on a light to moderate basis, according to studies released this week. However, as is frequently the case, these results do not prove a causal link between coffee consumption and health.

Australian researchers examined information from the UK Biobank, a long-running study that monitors the wellbeing of its citizens. Volunteers provided specifics about their eating patterns at the beginning of the experiment, including how much and what kind of coffee they typically drank. Over a 12-year follow-up period, the researchers monitored the health and death of roughly 450,000 volunteers over the age of 40 who had no documented cardiovascular disease at the start of the trial.

Coffee consumers were generally less likely to acquire cardiovascular disease and to pass away from any cause than non-coffee drinkers. However, the linked advantages were shown to vary slightly depending on the quantity and type of coffee consumed. The biggest mortality decreases were shown in those who consumed two to three cups of decaffeinated, ground, or instant coffee per day. Ground and instant coffee drinkers had the lowest risk of developing arrhythmia, or an abnormal heartbeat, but decaf drinkers did not experience any protective effects. On Monday, the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology published the findings.

Many research, including one that similarly evaluated UK Biobank data and was released last May, have found that drinking coffee is generally beneficial for people. But according to the authors, their study is one of the few to focus particularly on the kind of coffee consumers are consuming.
