On May 30 a respected medical journal (The Annals of Internal Medicine) published a scientific study linking lower mortality to coffee consumption. The study, which covered more than 170,000 people over a period of 7 years, found that those who drank 1.5 to 3.5 cups of coffee a day were 30% less likely to die during the study period than those who didn’t drink coffee.
Commenting on the study results, Dr. Christina Wee of the Harvard Medical School said, “It’s huge. There are very few things that reduce your mortality by 30 percent.”
For more detail on this new study, see the 6/1/2022 New York Times article, "Lower Mortality Risk, New Study Finds".
This study joins many other scientific articles published during the last two decades that link coffee drinking to health and well-being. See our prior blog posts of July 25, 2017, and August 13, 2012. As we have previously noted, many Kona coffee growers often cite the fact that longevity in Hawaii at 81.5 year life expectancy (per World Population Review) is greater than in any other state.
And we firmly believe that enjoying the rich, smooth, and floral flavors of 100% Kona Coffee contributes to the long life and happiness of the people of Hawaii!
