CNN --- Go ahead and grab another cup of joe! Another study is out touting the benefits of coffee.
Researchers in the United Kingdom looked at how coffee drinking habits affected mortality. It followed more than half a million participants, aged 38 to 73 years old, for ten years.
This may surprise you, but researchers found that the more coffee a person drank, up to eight cups a day, the lower their risk of early death.
The benefit was there for decaf coffee too.
The results were released Monday in Jama Intermal Medicine.
