Is Coffee Bad for the Heart or Not?
For years, scientists have been trying to answer these questions, since coffee is such a favorite beverage around the world. While some studies warn that drinking coffee can increase a person's risk of cardiovascular events, others suggest that it can help maintain heart health and blood vessel function. New research and evidence on cardiovascular health with thousands of participants has indicated that drinking more than three cups of coffee a day can protect against atherosclerosis, a condition in which plaque builds up inside the arteries, preventing blood from flowing normally. Another new study conducted by researchers from the Queen Mary University of London in the United Kingdom has found that even people who drink a significant amount of coffee daily do not experience arterial stiffness, meaning coffee does not increase their risk of cardiovascular problems in this way.
Lead author Prof. Steffen Petersen and colleagues presented the study's findings at the annual British Cardiovascular Society (BCS) Conference in Manchester, U.K.
