The research found that with parity in important factors such as age, consuming coffee is usually associated with lower mortality. The effect was observed in both caffeine and decayed coffee; both soluble and machine.

According to the study data, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, protection was strongest in people 55 years of age and older and showed a clear dose-corresponding tendency in the range of 1 to 6 cups per day.
Adela Navarro, a cardiologist of the Navarra Health System and author of the study, says he already knew that those presumed risks of high blood pressure did not exist long term. "Now we find clear benefits of the mortality risk of all the causes. This supports the benefits of their consumption."
Estefanía Toledo, a professor at the University of Navarra and the director of the work, says that the results show the same direction as those of other cohorts and have used strict methods to assess the impact of coffee, such as the EPIC study or the EUREYE. -Pain
But the new look of the new research is that the benefits have been maintained even with a consumption of 4-6 cups of coffee per day and especially in elderly people, where mortality is mainly caused by chronic diseases.
More coffee, lower mortality?
The better alternative explanations for causality were better monitored, more clearly the inverse association remained: more coffee, lower mortality.

According to the authors, "There is no risk that the study will be affected by the problem of ex-consumer patients, that is, those who would leave coffee because they already have previous illness.
For experts, the benefits could not be explained by a single component, from coffee "It's a complex mix of substances and among them many have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and it seems logical to think that they act synergically."
"When we recommend healthy diet or habits, we seem to get rid of everyone about what they like. There are many people who love coffee. These data are solid and well-known," Finish Miguel A. Martínez-González, another of the authors.
