"Higher consumption of coffee is connected to a lower risk of death, says a study presented by Spanish researchers during the European Society of Cardiology Congress held in Barcelona.
The study, conducted by Hospital de Navarra in Pamplona, Spain, featured nearly 20,000 participants and followed up with them for an average of 10 years.
The study found participants who drank at least four cups of coffee a day had a 64% lower risk of death than those who never or almost never drank coffee."
