However, the researchers stressed that the study only found an association with coffee and longevity and didn't prove that coffee leads to a longer life. It can just say that people who drink coffee are less likely to die early.

In general, the study found a 12 percent reduced risk of all- or any-cause mortality during the 10-year period.

Drinking coffee could be beneficial, regardless of whether a person metabolizes the drink quickly or slowly.

Of course with so many coffee drinkers across the world, such research tends to make headlines in popular media, which has been aswirl in coffee-and-health-related headlines lately for two reasons: 1) There is in reality more research coming out about the potential health benefits of coffee and its relationship to mortality; and 2) The recent California Proposition 65 ruling caused a significant backlash from the coffee industry and even the public health community, making headlines throughout the nation.

The live-giving properties of a cup of joe even stayed in place for the survey's 10,000 respondents who drank eight cups or more a day.

Despite that, she also said the results reinforce previous research and add additional reassurance for coffee drinkers. But it turns out that even slow caffeine metabolizers seem to share the death-risk-reduction connected to coffee drinking.

The study, conducted by the US National Cancer Institute, used data from more than 500,000 British volunteers.

That doesn't mean people should dramatically up their coffee intake, though: There isn't enough data to change the guidelines to include more cups of coffee, Loftfield said.

"There has been concern about the health effects of heavy coffee drinking, particularly in participants with common genetic polymorphisms that affect caffeine metabolism", the researchers wrote.

Most were coffee drinkers, nearly one-third or 154,000 people drank two to three cups daily and 10,000 drank at least eight cups daily.

The study didn't have enough data from people who drink that much coffee, Giovannucci said. But this study showed no extra risk for those with the genetic variant.

In fact, drinking lots of coffee was associated with a lower risk of early death, including among people who downed eight or more cups per day. The researchers were then able to correlate the rates of death with the amount of coffee that each cohort described drinking each day.

Past studies have indicated an inverse association between drinking coffee and the risk of developing chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, Parkinson's and cancers of the liver, bowel, colon and endometrium.

There are several possible explanations for the health benefits of coffee.

Her team followed the 498,134 participants, aged 38 to 73, from 2006 until 2016, during which time 14,225 of them died.
