Drink Coffee, Live Longer?


Go ahead and pour that cup of coffee -- you might live longer.

A new study by the National Cancer Institute finds that those who indulged in a cup of java outlived those who didn't.

The reason, however, isn't exactly clear.

Researchers say the study doesn't prove that coffee makes people live longer, only that there is a correlation between the two.

The study is published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

    Caffiene is bad for some people. It causes heart problems, causes the heart to beat wrong. You may not live longer if you have a undiagnosed heart problem. Check with your Doctor.
