Every day there is a new perspective on why coffee is really good for you or really bad for you. We, of course, find the benefits of a cup of coffee far outweigh any perceived risks but perhaps we are a bit biased on this one.
This from US News this past week.
Your morning just got better: Drinking coffee can dramatically reduce your risk of heart disease, according to a report recently presented at the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention & Rehabilitation’s 2015 meeting.
The report, published by the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee, or ISIC, a nonprofit dedicated to the study of coffee’s effects on health, details myriad studies linking java-drinking to heart health. For instance, a recent American Journal of Epidemiology study that shows drinking three to five cups of coffee per day could cut an individual’s risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by up to 21 percent.
What’s more, further research shows it may prevent heart disease from developing in the first place. In a 2015 Heart study of 25,000 men and women with no evidence of heart disease, researchers found that those who reported drinking three to five cups of coffee per day had the lowest amount of calcium buildup in their coronary arteries.
