Coffee Makes You Less Suicidal


    The results are in. Those who drink more coffee are less suicidal.  It might do you harm at some level or another but at least you will not dangle from a noose.  Coffee shops rejoice, now you can sell more cups of Joe.  Never mind Coke adds life, caffeine spares lives.

    Researchers examined data from three U.S. studies evaluating coffee and overall caffeine intake every four years. This included 43,599 men enrolled in the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study (1988-2008), 73,820 women in the Nurses’ Health Study (1992-2008) and 91,005 women in the Nurses’ Health Study II (1993-2007). The subjects shared information about their caffeine intake via questionnaires, and the studies involved 277 cases of suicide.
