Drinking Coffee Could Lower Death Risk From Being Sedentary

A study published in the journal BMC Public Health aimed to assess the association between daily sitting time and coffee intake on all-cause and cardiovascular disease deaths among U.S. adults. The study analyzed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) conducted between 2007 and 2018, including 10,639 adults. The analysis showed that noncoffee drinkers sitting for at least six hours per day were nearly 1.6 times more likely to die of all causes compared to coffee drinkers who sat for less than six hours daily.

Adults who were sedentary for six hours or more daily were more likely to be white, non-Hispanic, and have an education beyond high school. They also had a larger waist circumference, abdominal obesity, and a higher body mass index. Coffee drinkers were more likely to be non-Hispanic, white, older, and educated beyond high school.

Over a 13-year follow-up, there were 945 fatalities among research participants, with 284 of these deaths due to cardiovascular disease. The relationship between sitting time and increased death risk was significant only for adults who did not consume coffee, not among coffee drinkers.
