News recently broke that coffee does not cause cancer...well, to make things better, a new study found that drinking coffee is linked to living a longer life.
The research published in the peer-reviewed medical journal, JAMA, studied half a million people across the United Kingdom who drank 1 to 8 cups of coffee day.
The decade-long study found that people who drank two or three cups per day had about a 12 percent lower risk of death compared to non-coffee drinkers.
This population-based study included people ages ranging from 38 to 73 draws. This is not the first study to find such conclusions. A study published last year in The BMJ British medical journal looked at more than 200 previous studies and suggested that drinking three to fours cups of coffee a day can positively impact health more than it can cause harm! Check out that journal here!
Now, if you're still not convinced, there was another stud published last year last year in which Spanish researchers reported people who drank at least four cups of coffee a day had a 64-percent lower risk of death than those who never or almost never drank coffee.

Of course coffee isn't for everyone. In fact, some medical professionals warn against starting a coffee habit
Still, some medical professionals warn against starting a coffee habit. It's always best to go at your own pace, rather than jumping into drinking 4-8 cups immediately.
Of course the internet reacted to the studies released:
I'd like to know what you guys think. Do you find these articles and studies credible?
