While there are caveats to that claim, the new study found that a longer life was linked to any kind of coffee: instant, decaf, whatever.
The sheer number of studies out there on this subject proves that scientists are fascinated with coffee.
But this latest research is particular noteworthy because the team tapped into the data of 498,134 British people voluntarily registered with the UK Biobank genetics database, then logged deaths over a 10 year period.
There was a small but statistically significant trend showing that the more coffee people drank, the more likely they were to live longer. In other words, a higher percentage of the non-coffee drinkers died.
