A new Harvard study supports coffee addicts everywhere: three to five cups a day may lower risk of premature death by 15 percent.

According to research co-authored by Harvard University epidemiology professor and Nutrition Chair Walter Willet, coffee may help reduce risk of Parkinson’s, cardiovascular and neurological diseases, as well as Type 2 diabetes.

The research pulled data from 167,000 women and 40,000 men each four years through 30 years.

The conclusion showed that those who drank three to five cups of coffee a day lived three to seven years longer, on average, than those who did not.

Decaffeinated coffee had the same effect as caffeinated coffee, pointing to possible health benefits of the coffee bean.

Coffee consumption has been linked to disease prevention in the past — last year, a study by the American Association of Cancer Research said that four cups of coffee a day may reduce risk of liver cancer by 42 percent, based on health records of 180,000 Americans.

“I think if people like coffee, it’s fine to include it [as part of your daily habit]. So, certainly, [people] should not feel guilty about moderate coffee consumption. It definitely can be part of a healthy lifestyle,” Willet told NPR. “I wouldn’t suggest that someone who doesn’t like coffee go out and drink it.”
