In fact, it may be linked to a lower risk of dying, according to a study that just published in The Annals of Internal Medicine. The study found that those who drank between 1.5 to 3.5 cups of coffee per day, with or without sugar, were up to 30 percent less likely to die during the study period than those who didn’t drink coffee.  The study examined information from more than 170,000 people between the ages of 37 and 73 from a medical database in the United Kingdom with an average follow-up period of seven years. The study's conclusion was summarized in one sentence: "Moderate consumption of unsweetened and sugar-sweetened coffee was associated with lower risk for death." Click here to view the study.
    Coffee drinkers are up to a third less likely to die from any cause — even if they take sugar. In a study of 170,000 healthy Britons in their 50s, researchers looked at people who drank unsweetened or sweetened coffee and no coffee at all over seven years. They found that drinking between two to four cups per day was the sweet-spot, regardless of whether they used sugar or not. Unsweetened coffee drinkers had up to a 29 per cent lower risk compared to non-drinkers, while sweetened coffee was associated with a 31 per cent lower risk. But the researchers from Southern Medical University in Guangzhou, China, said the average coffee drinker only added about a teaspoon of sugar. This is far less than the amount in many popular coffees from high-street chains, experts warned.  Consuming too much of the white stuff can lead to a host of health problems, including obesity, diabetes and heart disease.  The new research joins a plethora of studies linking coffee to numerous health benefits, including general longevity, and less chance of depression or diabetes.

    Philadelphia's tax on sugary beverages seems to have worked, as the volume of purchases fell two years after the tax was put in place, a new study finds.  In January 2017, the city placed a 1.5 cent per ounce tax of sugary and artificially sweetened drinks such as soda. Research led by the University of Pennsylvania found that the volume of purchased drinks fell by nearly 42 percent in the 24 months after the tax went into place.  Additionally, researchers found that soda taxes reduced the consumption of sugary drinks in comparison to peer cities.  While soda taxes are common in some other countries, their rollout throughout many cities in the U.S. has just begun in recent years.
