People with chronic kidney disease may live longer if they drink three coffees a day.
This was the conclusion of a study that followed more than 2,300 patients for 12 years. It found those who drank plenty of coffee slashed their risk of dying by 25 per cent.
One or two cups also raised the participants’ chances of survival by 12 and 22 per cent, respectively, compared to those who never touched it.
The researchers in Portugal believe their results suggest advising patients with chronic kidney disease to drink more coffee.
