Drinking more coffee leads to a longer life, two studies say

(CNN) Greater consumption of coffee could lead to a longer life, according to two new studies published Monday.

The findings have resurfaced the centuries-old conversation on coffee's health effects.

One study surveyed more than 520,000 people in 10 European countries, making it the largest study to date on coffee and mortality, and found that drinking more coffee could significantly lower a person's risk of mortality.

The second study was more novel, as it focused on nonwhite populations. After surveying over 185,000 African-Americans, Native Americans, Hawaiians, Japanese-Americans, Latinos and whites, the researchers found that coffee increases longevity across various races.

People who drank two to four cups a day had an 18% lower risk of death compared with people who did not drink coffee, according to the study. These findings are consistent with previous studies that had looked at majority white populations, said Veronica Wendy Setiawan, associate professor of preventative medicine at USC's Keck School of Medicine, who led the study on nonwhite populations.

He Drank 47 Cups of Coffee a Day and What Happened Was Beyond Amazing
Extreme caffeination is not for everybody, but it definitely worked well for this guy.

Ever wonder what would happen if you drank WAY more coffee than you do today? Well, it turns out there's this guy who drank the equivalent of around 47 cups a day (Americano) for almost 25 years. That's about six gallons a day, or cumulatively enough coffee to fill an Olympic-size swimming pool.

Since consuming six gallons a day of any liquid would kill you, he drank his coffee in the form of super-strong espresso, thus significantly cutting down the volume but not the potency. (He also chewed raw coffee grounds when he needed an extra energy burst.)

Now, you'd think that anybody consuming such an insane amount of coffee would get the jitters to the point that they'd be walking around on the ceiling like a gecko. What actually happened, though, was far more amazing.

While on world's hugest coffee buzz, Honore de Balzac wrote 47 novels, 12 novellas, 18 short stories, and 8 plays. Balzac also created the world's first continuing series with character crossovers--the model for all genre fiction. You think Stan Lee created a lot of heroes and villains? Well, Balzac invented and juggled 2,472 named characters.

Even more amazingly, Balzac created this mass of intellectual property without using a computer or even a typewriter. Or even a sharpie. No, that huge creative output came out of a hand-cut quill pen. And the writing wasn't fluff. Quite the contrary, Balzac is widely considered the most influential novelist of all time.

So, we'd all like to be that creative, right? Well, before you order 12 espresso machines on Amazon, be forewarned that--despite the salutary effect it apparently had on Balzac-- drinking that much coffee is really bad idea. While you probably wouldn't get caffeine poisoning, you'd definitely end up with sleep problems and probably some kind of nervous exhaustion.

On the other hand, you might want to step up your game a bit. According to multiple studies, you get the greatest benefit from coffee if you drink between six and eight cups a day, or roughly a quart of brewed Americano. So most people, sadly, probably aren't drinking enough. Bottoms up!
