Study finds coffee drinkers have lower risk of death – 1
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Researchers have found an association between coffee drinking and a lower risk of death for older adults. NIH researcher Dr. Neal Freedman says coffee drinkers in the study were less likely to die from a number of different causes.
Freedman: We found that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of dying from heart disease, stroke, diabetes, respiratory disease and infections, but not for cancer.
Narrator: He says for cancer there was no association for women but for men there was a small increased risk of cancer with higher amounts of coffee consumed.
