Contrary to popular myth, forgoing coffee isn’t likely to improve your health. The opposite might be true: Years of research suggeststhat drinking coffee is linked with a lower risk of death.

The findings suggested that those who drank 1.5 to 3.5 cups a day had a lower risk of death during those seven years than non-coffee drinkers, even if they added a teaspoon of real sugar — not artificial sweetener — to every cup.

On the whole, people who drank unsweetened coffee were 16 percent to 21 percent less likely to die during the study period than people who didn’t drink coffee at all, the results showed.
