Not one, but TWO studies say coffee might be helping us live longer. Let's thank these researchers for enabling our coffee habits.

I know what you're thinking, in about six months they'll say coffee is bad for us again by some bizarre study. But for now lets celebrate this news!

Reports say that coffee may be the link to helping us live longer, by lowering the risk of developing deadly diseases like cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, etc.

The separate studies done in America and Europe were published on Monday in the journal, Annals of Internal Medicine. Both examined the coffee habits of people over about 16 years, to see it's effects.

It was discovered, that those who drank more coffee had lower chances of early death. Although to Thrillist, this news is unsurprising considering coffee contains antioxidants that help influence blood pressure and liver function.

While I joked earlier that these studies enable our coffee addiction, too much of a good thing can be bad for you! So, do drink in moderation still.

...otherwise I promise to turn a blind eye.
