In addition, those who consumed unsweetened coffee in any quantity were anywhere between 16% and 21 percent lower likely to be dead within the subsequent seven years.

The results of coffee made sweetened by artificial sweetener are not as clear.

The researchers therefore utilized UK Biobank data to assess more than 171,000 UK participants, none of whom had known cancer or heart disease. Through questionnaires and behavioral tests they were able reduce the findings to determine that people who consume coffee with sugar or without sweetener tend to live longer within the next years.
