Journalists top coffee-drinking chart


The article linked in the story is from The Journal of Undergraduate Research (whatever that is)? The biggest study of the impact of coffee on health was published in the New England Journal of Medicine (the world’s most prestigious medical journal) a couple of years ago [1]. This looked at the association of coffee drinking with subsequent total and cause-specific mortality among 229,119 men and 173,141 women in the National Institutes of Health Diet and Health Study.
The findings? Coffee consumption was inversely associated with total and cause-specific mortality. The more people drank the less they died.
