Most were coffee drinkers; 154,000 or nearly one-third drank two to three cups daily and 10,000 drank at least eight cups daily.

The researchers used data from the UK Biobank study, through which a large group of UK adults completed health questionnaires, underwent physical examinations and provided biological samples. Over the course of the 10-year study, a little more than 14,000 people died. The authors called for future studies with more detailed data collection on coffee type and preparation to provide further insights. To reap the benefit, it doesn't matter if your coffee is decaf or instant or caffeinated, the researchers said.

There are several possible explanations for the health benefits of coffee. However, he highlighted the findings could be at risk of inaccuracies due to unknown or unmeasured factors linking to drinking coffee and being in good health. And the risk of death during the follow-up period was only slightly higher for people drinking around 4 cups of coffee a day compared with those who drank more than 8, he told Live Science.

According to him, coffee got a bad reputation because in the past, many of those who enjoyed their brew also tended to smoke cigarettes.
