How can coffee with sugar reduce the risk of death?

Compared to those who don't drink coffee at all, adults who drink moderate amounts of unsweetened refreshing drink or sugary coffee daily are less likely to die for at least seven years. This conclusion was made by scientists from the Southern Medical University in Guangzhou (China), according to the Profile website.
How can coffee with sugar reduce the risk of death?

The study used data from the UK Biobank questionnaire of 171,000 people with no known heart disease or cancer. They were asked questions about food. The task of scientists was to evaluate the relationship between the use of sugar-sweetened, artificial sweeteners and unsweetened coffee with mortality from all and specific causes, writes News Medical.

The authors found that over a seven-year follow-up period, study participants who drank any amount of unsweetened coffee were 16% to 21% less likely to die than those who did not drink coffee at all. The participants who drank 1.5 to 3.5 cups of coffee with sugar daily were 29% to 31% less likely to die than, respectively, those who did not drink coffee.

However, for those who used artificial sweeteners, the data were inconclusive. Amount of sugar is another important point. The researchers noted that adults who drank sweetened coffee added, on average, only about one teaspoon of sugar per cup. This is much less than the sugar content of many popular coffee drinks in restaurants and cafes.
