"Participants drinking four or more cups per day, compared with those drinking less coffee and nondrinkers, were more likely to drink instant coffee and be current smokers, whereas participants drinking one to three cups per day were older, more likely to have a university degree, and more likely to report "excellent" health".

Brew addicts' daily coffee fix is probably doing wonders for their lifespan as a new study reveals that coffee drinkers are more likely to live longer.

Of course there has also been evidence to suggest that coffee could be bad for you.

However, the team behind the study stressed they only found a correlation between coffee and a lower chance of death.

He added: "Healthier coffee, free from sugar or syrup, should also be encouraged to optimize any health benefit". Ten years after the start of the study, 14,225 people had died.

An interesting result was that the consumption of each type of coffee-ground, instant, and decaffeinated-was inversely associated with all-cause mortality, with ground coffee showing a stronger association. We all metabolise coffee at different rates, which alters our sensitivity to it, but the data showed that this had no effect on the link between drinking coffee and a longer life. They found people who drank at least eight cups of coffee a day had a lower risk of some cancers and heart and lung disease. Those who drank six to seven cups a day saw a 16 percent decrease. The findings were true among all coffee drinkers, even those who might be more sensitive to the effects of caffeine.

"There are compounds in caffeine and coffee beans - polyphenols, antioxidants, magnesium - [and] this reduces inflammation, it lowers insulin resistance", ABC News Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton said Tuesday on "Good Morning America". So the next time someone says they're trying to limit their coffee consumption, you can tell them not to worry about it. Simply drinking coffee isn't necessarily a health panacea.

Their analysis showed no extra risk for any genetic variant, however.

Additionally, the study found that cancer, cardiovascular disease, and respiratory disease accounted for approximately 8294 (58%), 2833 (20%), and 553 (4%) deaths in the cohort, respectively.

While caffeine in large amounts can kill, it takes huge amounts of coffee to deliver a lethal dose - more than 20 cups at once. Some studies have suggested that unfiltered coffee, made in percolaters or French presses, might raise unhealthy cholesterol levels.

The results support the recommendations of the U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, which states consuming three to five cups of coffee per day, or 400 milligrams per day, of caffeine is not detrimental to healthy individuals.
