## For the study with the headline "coffee Gives Jolt to Lifespan, over 400,000 adults aged 50 to 71 were studied for 13 years as part of the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study. They completed a questionnaire asking about 124 dietary items in addition to demographic and lifestyle variables. Results were reported separately for men and women and for differing amounts of coffee consumption. The hazard ratio for death (somewhat similar to a relative risk) for men who drank 2 or 3 cups of coffee a day was estimated to be 0.88, with a 95% confidence interval from 0.84 to 0.93, indicating that they were less likely to die during the study than men who drank no coffee.
