A new Australian study has revealed that drinking two to three cups of coffee a day leads to a longer lifespan and a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.

He added: “The results of the study indicate that moderate to moderate consumption of instant and decaffeinated coffee can be considered part of a healthy lifestyle.”
Professor Kistler explained: ‘Caffeine is the best known component of coffee, but the drink contains more than 100 biologically active ingredients. It is possible that non-caffeinated compounds are responsible for the positive relationships observed between coffee consumption and cardiovascular disease and survival. “.
