While most avid coffee drinkers would likely tell you downing at least one cup of the caffeinated beverage a day makes their lives better, they may not know just how beneficial java can be.

A new study conducted in the United Kingdom has found that people who drink coffee on a daily basis are far less likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease or cancer. Researchers found that people who drink 1.5 to 3.5 cups of sweetened coffee a day are 30 percent less likely to die, compared to people who don’t drink coffee.

Surprisingly, the numbers for unsweetened coffee drinkers aren’t quite as good. According to the study, which appears in the journal Annuls of Study, people who drink coffee without sugar are between 16 percent and 29 percent less likely to die.

Given that researchers used to say coffee caused cancer, do you believe these latest findings?
