It’s Official Café con Leche Can Extend Your Life


A 16-year study by British researchers has proven what many Latinos, Cubans, Mexicans, Latin Americans, etc… have known for ages, Café con Leche is good for you. The study coming out of the University of Cambridge has concluded through two in-depth studies that Café con Leche extends your life and helps you fight nasty diseases.

So how much of the brew do you need? Each yummy cup of Café con Leche reduces your risk of death by 12 percent over 16 years. This adds up to an extra month of life for Latinas and three month for Latinos – not bad especially since you also get your boost of caffeine along the way.

Where’s all the good stuff coming from? Well not from the leche but from the Café that contains antioxidants which helps improve live function and lowers dangerous inflammation. The key benefit is the role Café con Leche plays in helping individuals prevent cancer. Café con Leche also helps reduce risk from digestive diseases.

This is good news for Latinos that are the biggest coffee lovers in the country according to a study by the National Coffee Association. Sixty-seven percent of Latinos consume their Café con Leche versus 64 percent for the general population.

The largest study of its kind, involved nearly 500,000 people studies over the course of 16 years all across Europe.

Researchers noted: “Our results suggest that moderate coffee drinking – up to around three cups per day – is not detrimental to your health, and that incorporating coffee into your diet could have health benefits.”
