Go ahead and have that cup of coffee, it may boost your chances for a longer life.

According to a new study now published in "Jama Internal Medicine," researchers say that if you drink coffee, you're more likely to live longer.

After studying nearly half a million British adults, the team found that people who drink two to three cups of coffee a day have a 12 percent lower risk of death to non-coffee drinkers.

While this is not the first study to suggest a longevity boost for coffee drinkers, it is the first to include those who drink decaf.
