Drink Coffee! Live Forever! New Medical Research Proves It! My 3 Favorite Coffee Encounters!

Here’s An Eye-Opening Medical Study On Coffee! Drink Up!

I love coffee. I have posted many stories about that love of coffee, and a new medical report confirms what we have all known:


Seriously, this study shows just how great coffee is, from protecting your liver to helping to prevent Alzheimer’s!

I just read a terrific story on MEDIUM that focused on the research published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine last year – and the bottom line was terrific, as it supports drinking coffee – even LOTS of coffee:

The report “suggests a lower risk of death was associated with drinking more coffee, including among coffee drinkers who have eight or more cups per day.”

A 2017 review of 201 coffee studies and 17 clinical trials, published in The BMJ, found coffee was:

“associated with a lower risk of several cancers, including prostate, endometrial, skin and liver cancer, as well as type 2 diabetes, gallstones, and gout.”

Beyond that, the researchers discovered positive effects on brain health: Coffee consumption was linked to a lower risk of Parkinson’s disease, depression, and Alzheimer’s disease.

This was no minor study: it tracked coffee consumption and mortality among 521,330 people across Europe. The researchers discovered the following:

“Higher coffee consumption was associated with a lower risk of death from any cause, and specifically for circulatory diseases, and digestive diseases,” said lead author Marc Gunter, a nutrition expert at the International Agency for Research on Cancer. “Drinking more coffee was [also] associated with a more favorable liver function profile and immune response,” Gunter says.“Importantly, these results were similar across all of the 10 European countries, with variable coffee drinking habits and customs.”

OK, I love that picture, but coffee came out smelling like roses on this study!

Veronica Setiawan, an associate professor of preventive medicine at the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine says:

“Coffee contains a lot of antioxidants and phenolic compounds that play an important role in cancer prevention,” she says. “Although this study does not show causation or point to what chemicals in coffee may have this ‘elixir effect,’ it is clear that coffee can be incorporated into a healthy diet and lifestyle.”

If you want to read the entire report, MEDIUM has the “elemental” story here:


So not only is coffee good for you, but you can drink as much as you want! That leads to my three favorite coffee experiences:

Coffee Jelly!

Yes, I “consumed: this product, which I found in a Tokyo vending machine…I can’t say I drank it because it’s coffee jello! You can click here to see more of my taste test – and other wild things I found in Tokyo’s vending machines:


I also reported a couple of years back about a new product that takes coffee in a whole new direction: colorless!

This has yet to show up in the US, but I’d love to try it – see how they did it by clicking on my story here:


And finally, my friend Sabrina went to Southeast Asia and brought me back this special gift:

A Premium Weasel Product!

Yes, it’s coffee, harvested from the “droppings” of Weasels!

It’s the world’s best coffee and I made it – click here for my taste test!


So there you go: even more reasons to celebrate the health benefits of coffee!

  7. That makes me feel better about drinking around 5-6 large mugs a day. 🙂
    Now all I need is a study that says I can drink as much red wine as I like!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  8. I’m sure Starbuck’s is thrilled with the findings.
    It does rev you up which is why I like it in the morning. I stop after a few cups and then switch to tea and water for the working day. Then after work, it’s on to beer or wine. 😉

    • Cindy, we are on the same schedule: I do coffee in the morning, water and one cup of Licorice tea in the afternoon, then wine with dinner…the report was very substantial and reiterates what I’ve read before: coffee helps your liver recover from alcohol and it also has a VERY positive effect on Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s…every little bit helps in fighting off such horrible diseases!


      • I hope the study sticks. My liver needs all the help it can get.


      • Here is the proof: “An increased consumption of coffee may help to reduce the risk of liver cancer. Two reviews of a total of ten studies have found that as coffee consumption increases, risk of liver cancer decreases. This association is seen in healthy individuals as well as those with previous liver disease. The two remarkable features of the results of these studies are their consistency and the very large reduction in observed disease risk.

        Overall, an increase in coffee consumption of two cups per day, in individuals who typically consume anything from one to over five cups a day, is associated with a 43% lower risk of developing liver cancer.”


      • Hear, hear! Thanks for sharing, John.
