Drinking coffee linked to lower deaths: research
The Telegraph ^ | 5/16/12 | Rebecca Smith

Posted on 05/17/2012 3:08:55 AM PDT by markomalley

Researchers found that compared with people who did not drink coffee, men who consumed six or more cups a day where 10 per cent less likely to die during the 14 years of the study.

For women there were 15 per cent fewer deaths for those drinking six cups or more.

The findings, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, showed that there was a marginal difference for men drinking one cup per day, but two drinking two to three cups a day were 10 per cent less likely to die, those drinking four or five cups per day were 12 per cent less likely to die than non coffee drinkers.

For women there was no effect seen for one cup or less per day. Those drinking two or three cups were five per cent less likely to die compared with those who drank none at all and those drinking four or five cups were 16 per cent less likely to die.

The researchers said the effect was seen across almost all causes of death including heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke, injuries and accidents, diabetes, and infections.

Wouldn’t that much coffee be hard on the kidneys, though?

I really pay no attention to this stuff. The scientists either don’t know what they are doing or else their results are predetermined based on who has provided funding for the current study.

Until next testing and they find out coffee is a horrible thing....one minute eggs are awful for you. The next, they are the greatest things on Earth. Just eat and drink what you want. It is insane for anyone to listen to anything the government tells you.

The important question is how coffee consumption affects flatulence, and thus global warming.

The truth is, everyone who eats eggs is alive, so they are good. However, everyone who eats eggs eventually dies, so they are also bad.

I used to drink coffee with sugar and cream, bad for you. My wife kept pestering me to drink it black. So I did, and she was right! I learned to just love it black, plus it is better for you.

A lot of being able to drink it black has to do with the coffee itself and the water.

I drink it black at home because I use distilled water and one of the better Folgers grades, and it is delicious. Out and about I often find black coffee undrinkable because of the miserable taste.

I know a 90 year old who still drives, and is dating (no he is not rich, and she's in her 50s I think). He is absolutely intellectually intact, and looks like he's in his 60s. I'm sure his genes have something to do with it.

Black is the only way I take my coffee. I love sugar but cannot stand it in coffee. The only way I take sugar in coffee is to dunk a doughnut or cookie. As for cream...yuck.

As for this study....what a pantload.

Try Dunkin’ Donuts. You can make it strong enough to stand a fork in and still don’t get that burned taste.

I drank black coffee for 40 years. Adding cream and sweetener keeps me from eating sweets. NOT going back to black.

Depending on the location (again because of the local water), I’d take McDonald’s black coffee over Starbucks any time.

(Although you have to be careful even at McDonald’s because they are using tap water. Some local tap water makes really awful coffee. Down here in South Texas, some cities have enough chlorine in their water to walk on.)

I love black coffee also....I think Starbucks has more flavor then Dunkin Donuts which to me tastes like hot water....I’ve recently discovered a 1lb, $5.00 bag of “Java Time” from Big Lot’s that is strong,delish and makes the morning just zip on by (:

If you have an Aldis nearby they have a fairly good knock-off of the DD coffee called Donut Shop Blend. IIRC it was about $5 for a 12 oz bag.

I buy a bag every now and then for a treat

9 And again, hot drinks are not for the body or belly.

Somebody told a little fib:

" Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Kirtland, Ohio, February 27, 1833. HC 1: 327-329. As a consequence of the early brethren using tobacco in their meetings, the Prophet was led to ponder upon the matter; consequently he inquired of the Lord concerning it. This revelation, known as the Word of Wisdom, was the result. The first three verses were originally written as an inspired introduction and description by the Prophet."

Rest assured that even if they did find similar results, they would never be published. Cigarettes are bad, don't ya know.

NO IT’S NOT. I drink a pot of coffee everyday w/heavy cream and splenda.

I do the same only I use real sugar for the first two cups and no sweetener for the rest. Heavy whipping cream beats the heck out of half-n-half for creamy richness in a strong pot of sumatra blend...

If you drink it black, it needs to be good coffee. I am blessed to have a friend who is a roaster...roastmaster? Anyway he started a coffee business recently and brings me bags of beans that I grind fresh every morning for my two daily mugs. Do a search for JBrooks coffee roasters to find him.

And once you buy a bag of beans or ground coffee, wrap it up tight and put it into a zip-loc bag. Don’t just leave it loosely closed.

I'm a big time coffee fan. I even roast it using a nice drum roaster. I still use milk and sugar, though. 1/5 milk to coffee. I think it brings out a great flavor. Yes, I'll drink it black now and then, but I enjoy it this way.

Good news for me. Now I need a similar result for cigarettes.

I quit tobacco entirely about five years back. I quit tailor makes a good fifteen years before that. While still smoking ready made cigarettes my lungs hurt, I was out of breath and my lungs would not clear easily. I changed over to roll your own and did better, less chemicals in the tobacco. Then went to high grade pipe tobacco roll your own, again did better, no chemicals. Also good cigars, again no chemicals.

Personal opinion and direct observation, avoid ready made cigarettes, they are full of chemicals having nothing to do with tobacco other than stopping mold. Tobacco in moderation, with out the poisons, is better.
