According to recent research, regular coffee consumption can reduce the health risks that can arise from sitting for long periods of time. A study published by ScienceAlert, which involved 10,000 Americans, offers new hope for those who spend several hours a day in an office chair or on the couch.

The research was carried out by a team from Suzhou University in China, with American assistance. Scientists have been looking for an answer to how coffee can counteract the long-term health consequences of a sedentary lifestyle. According to the results, regular coffee drinkers were 1.58 times less likely to die over the next 13 years than non-coffee drinkers.

This beneficial effect can be felt even after drinking a cup of coffee a day, which is especially important for those who sit for up to 8 hours a day. A sedentary lifestyle can cause a number of known health problems, such as increasing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. The exact mechanism behind coffee’s potential protective effect remains unknown, although previous research has attributed various health-protective effects to caffeine.
