I used to think coffee was bad for you. I don’t know where I got that idea from, but tea was the only hot drink in our house. Although for my school days it was free milk and then Corona pop when I got home. For most of my working life I have been a tea drinker. A legacy of my early working life on building sites where the only brew on offer was a mug of sugary tea
Nobody told me I might die earlier because I wasn’t drinking coffee !
A 10-year long study by Spanish researchers of 20,000 people aged between 25 and 60, found that drinking coffee cuts the risk of dying by two thirds ! What’s more, every extra 2 cups reduces mortality by a further 22% !!! So with two thirds in the bag already and say 4 four more cups a day I reckon I could live forever 😀
Apparently this is all to do with antioxidants, diterprenes and polyphenols. No mention of extra sugar ?
Just one small note of caution. The study leader was Dr. Adela Navarro, a cardiologist at Navarro Hospital in Pamplona.
So this might be a load of old bull.
