So A 20-Year Study Says That Coffee Is Actually Good For You

Coffee could be the healthiest thing you consume in a day–but only if you make it the right way.

A new study finds that while filtered coffee reduces your risk of death from any cause by 15 percent, drinking unfiltered joe–which includes Greek coffee, Turkish coffee or French-press coffee–actually increases your risk of heart disease. A study published Wednesday in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology found that unfiltered coffee raised the risk of death in men aged 60 and above, while those who drank one to four cups of filtered coffee per day had the lowest mortality rate–including compared to people who drink no coffee at all.

Explains study author Dag Thelle, “Unfiltered coffee contains substances which increase blood cholesterol. Using a filter removes these and makes heart attacks and premature death less likely.”
