They looked for associations between the amount of coffee consumed and various health indications, but it's not a cause-and-effect relationship.

This is down to links between drinking coffee and a reduced risk of liver disease, circulatory issues, heart disease, strokes, and diseases to do with the digestive tract.

The consumption of coffee could have significant health benefits, even increasing lifespans by up to nine minutes a day according to new research.

The research couldn't prove that coffee deserved the credit for imbibers' additional birthdays, because the studies were observational, which means participants chose whether they wanted to drink coffee. In other words, those coffee drinkers were living longer. Adjusting for factors such as diet and smoking, the team says that subjects in the highest quartile of coffee consumption had significantly lower mortality rates than those that didn't drink coffee.

"This study is the largest of its kind and includes minorities who have very different lifestyles", said Veronica Setiawan, lead author of the new study, according to Gizmodo.

Nearly 42,000 people died during the study period, of various causes: Roughly 18,000 from cancer; 9,100 from circulatory diseases like coronary artery disease; and 2,380 from cerebrovascular conditions like strokes, among other causes.

It turned out that coffee drinkers had somewhat better survival odds. Compared to people who didn't drink coffee at all, people who drank two to three cups per day were 18% less likely to die early.

Furthermore, the findings were applicable across all cultures involved in the study, including African-Americans, Japanese-Americans, Native Hawaiians, Latinos, and whites.

They found the type of coffee, such as espresso or milky latte, did not alter its protective effect.

Sarah Toule, of World Cancer Research Fund, said: "Our own evidence found that coffee can help decrease the risk of liver cancer".

The participants included in the study came from 10 European countries. During the investigation, almost 42,000 died.

Two cups a day led to a 35 per cent reduction and up to five cups halved the risk.

Researchers said the findings are consistent with previous studies that had looked at majority white populations.

Marc Gunter, from the International Agency for Research on Cancer and a co-author of one of the studies, said that the connection can also be due to something else.

To be clear, these studies are pointing out a correlation between people who drink coffee that shows they seem to live longer and avoid certain diseases more often than non-coffee drinkers in the same study cohort.

There are also potential downsides to coffee, noted Guallar, a professor at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

Two new studies on the health benefits of coffee say that your morning caffeine boost doesn't just get you through your workday. And some people, such as pregnant women and teenagers, should have stricter caffeine limits.

Many studies have shown it has a beneficial impact on the health, with higher consumption linked to lower levels of inflammation and to a lower risk of diabetes.
