Coffee lovers, this one's for you!

According to a new study, those who drink coffee with sugar or unsweetened are less likely to live longer.

Per NBC News, the study looked at around 120,000 people in the U.K. who regularly drank unsweetened or sugar-sweetened coffee over seven years. It found that those who drank 1.5 to 3.5 cups a day had a lower risk of death during those seven years than non-coffee drinkers.

"Biologically, it is plausible that coffee could actually confer some direct health benefits," said Dr. Christina Wee, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. She added, "We can’t say for sure that it’s the coffee drinking per se that leads to the lower mortality risk."
