I had an uncle who drank pots of coffee a day. Marked off as the primary reason for his heart attack.

If three cups of coffee has that effect I wonder what a real stimulant would do!!

Weird that they mention improved cardiovascular health. I thought coffee was bad for that. I  have read that it protects the liver though.

Well, coffee is probably better for your liver than booze.

It breaks 32 different organs and systems, and benefits 32 more.  It also makes you more likely to get about 17 different things and less likely to get ... you get the idea here.  Just like nearly everything else does

Oh good I won't live forever. Last thing I want to do is to be stuck on this planet when the sun starts baking it to a crisp or worse yet alive when the universe experience heat death. Ha ha suckers!

I'm pretty sure that nicotine by itself is fine. All the other crap in tobacco, however is terrible for you.

This might as well just be an ad for big coffee as a whole. All these "studies" about living longer or shorter due to coffee, eggs, wine, etc, well I can guarantee you reading them doesn't make you live longer. Try and eat healthy, exercise on occasion, try to avoid excess, but most importantly, remember to enjoy yourself. If you live a large chunk of your life miserable but you tacked on a few extra years of misery, well that just seems like a raw deal.

It's really not, no - it's a poison and a fairly unpleasant one - we just ingest comparatively small doses so the effects aren't vast - but it's still not good mostly

I have one mug a day and am currently 19 years older than my father was when he died.

Honestly, there are over 200 active compounds in Tobacco, and it treats a wide variety of medical ailments, at the expense of being addicted to tobacco.  So yeh, medical uses, but cancer, addiction and death as side effects.

Bad medicine.

Could it be that this study found something besides the published conclusion?  That, maybe, people who enjoy coffee all day are overall less stressed, prepared to pause for a break as needed, and have an overall positive attitude that allows them to slough off a lot of life's pressures?
I remember there was a study of cholesterol in France, and the biggest surprise on the finding was that French farmers generally had a cholesterol level above 300, but didn't die any younger than the rest of the population.  The apparent reason was they didn't seem to give a fark about things they couldn't control.  This was before the goddam not-so-smart phone and instant everything in the face all the goddam time.
Coffee, however, is one of the great gifts of this world.  I believe I'll refill the mug and go out and breathe the sweet morning air.

Nicotine is mostly harmless for humans. Don't use it when pregnant probably. Otherwise... it's fine.

Full on tobacco though is definitely bad.

French farmers can control anything. They will shut the country down if you don't give them their subsidies.

I've reached the point in life where I'm genuinely a little worried about living too long.  Both my parents passed in their early 80s, and my retirement won't stretch much beyond that.

3 cups?  That must be for preschoolers or something.

When  I was a young man u saw a documentary about the Incas   the narator:"This is no ordinary cigar..the nicotine alone can make you hallucinate"so of course I got a big ass cigar. As it was an "ordinary" one I did not hallucinate  I did however throw up

Longer life just could be because you didn't kill anyone and got tossed into prison.

/Have about 3 cups day so I don't kill anyone.

Me too, but after 3 days without coffee I had suicidal thoughts, even though I was getting caffeine from other sources.

Not gonna try that  third time.

One cup of coffee a day reduced your risk of contracting Wuhan-Hu-1 by about 15%.  No clue if that still holds.  Wuhan-Hu-1 was a legless toddler to Recombinant Omicron's cheetah.
