Jon and James are declared immortal as scientists reveal coffee can reduce chance of death
The American study found that people who drank one cup of coffee daily were 12 per cent less likely to die than those who drank no coffee, irrespective of ethnicity, while drinking two to three cups of coffee appeared to reduce the chances of death by 18 per cent.
The lead author of the Study Dr Veronica Setiawan, from the University of Southern California explains this ‘fountain of youth’ phenomenon:
“Coffee contains a lot of antioxidants and phenolic compounds that play an important role in cancer prevention,” she said.
“We cannot say drinking coffee will prolong your life, but we see an association. If you like to drink coffee, drink up! If you’re not a coffee drinker, then you need to consider if you should start.”
James and Jon have decided to ignore that latter statement, with both suggesting that ‘this Quack has no idea….we’re gonna live forever’
Furthering the Mr J Design’s teams point of view was Sir David Spiegelhalter, Winton professor for the public understanding of risk at Cambridge University. He said:
“If these estimated reductions in all-cause mortality really are causal, then an extra cup of coffee every day would on average extend the life of a man by around three months, and a woman by around a month.
“Pro-rata, that’s as if that cup of coffee puts, on average, around nine minutes on a man’s life, and around three minutes on a woman’s. So perhaps we should relax and enjoy it.”
This is the sort of science the lads can get behind.
