4 Cups of Coffee a Day Lowers Risk of Death

There's no such thing as too much coffee, but now scientists have determined that drinking four cups of coffee per day is the magic amount for a longer life. Researchers in Spain who followed 20,000 patients over an average of 10 years found that subjects who drank at least four cups of coffee per day had a whopping 64 percent lower risk of death than those subjects who never or rarely drank coffee. 

Among people 45 or older, drinking two additional cups was linked to a 30 percent lower risk of death. Says cardiologist and study author Dr. Adela Navarro, "Our findings suggest that drinking four cups of coffee per day can be part of a healthy diet in healthy people." And, of course, super-awake people.
