Survey: People Who Drink More Coffee, Die Faster
People who drink more than four cups of coffee per day have a higher mortality rate, according to a new analysis of the 1979 to 1998 Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study. Younger men who drank about 28 cups of coffee per week were 56 percent likelier to die sooner than non-coffee drinkers, while women had double the risk of dying. The recently discovered health benefits of coffee’s antioxidants and protective effects against diseases like diabetes have not been called into question, however. “We’re not saying that coffee is the cause of death; we just noticed coffee is associated with increased risk of death,” said study co-author Dr. Carl Lavie.

The Rules of Pregnancy, Wine and Coffee Have Changed?
University of Chicago economist Emily Oster took a hard look at the “rules” of pregnancy and found that many things women take for granted are based on outdated or poorly sourced information. Relying on scientific studies, Oster, who’s written a new book on the topic, has good news for pregnant moms: A little wine is fine, even in the first trimester; coffee is safe even in quantity; sushi is okay; and weight gained during pregnancy is less important than a woman’s starting weight. Oster’s findings are facing fierce opposition from some experts, but she says the facts are on her side.
