A new study, conducted by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health, found that drinking coffee on a regular basis may help boost longevity.



The study, which included more than 200,000 women and 50,000 men, concluded that people who regularly drink three to five cups of coffee (decaf or regular) had a better chance of living a longer life.

According to this same study, "coffee consumption has been inversely associated with risks of type 2 diabetes, liver cancer, endometrial cancer, lethal prostate cancer, basal cell carcinoma of the skin, and neurological diseases, as well as with risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) when consumed in moderation."

While of course, this is not a fast and hard rule for all coffee drinkers, one thing is for certain. Caffeine enthusiasts, keep on sipping down those cups of joe, guilt free!
