  1. Misleading headline.

    >We conducted a 10-year follow-up study (1980 to 1990) in an ongoing cohort of 86 626 US female registered nurses aged 34 to 59 years in 1980, who were free of diagnosed coronary heart disease, stroke, or cancer.

    ~~Coffee drinkers~~ Female nurses between 34-59 years old who drank coffee between 1980 to 1990, and were free of diagnosed heart disease, stroke, and cancer, were 53% less likely to complete suicide.

  2. I bet it has more to do with coffee drinkers have jobs, eg they wake up and get out of bed, have coffee and go to work. Having a purpose and socialization both help people feel needed.
