The article presents a study which assesses the relationship of coffee consumption on mortality from cardiovascular disease and cancer in Great Britain. The assessment of sex-specific hazard models reveals that coffee does not contribute to the increased of mortality rate in either men and women. It suggests further investigation on the benefits of coffee consumption on all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality.
