and Heart Disease - Prevention is Possible with Moderate Intake
June 9, 2010
Researchers are fascinated in finding the link between drinking coffee
and heart disease risks. Since coffee is the most consumed beverage
around the world, if there are any health benefits, we would really
like to know about it.
Now a ten year long study done in Japan
involving 37,742 men and women showed very promising and shocking
health benefits. Drinking 1-2 cups daily has a very favorable effect on
dying from any causes. In women, the benefits to heart disease
from drinking 3 or more cups daily is a shocking--it cuts the risk of
heart disease down by 55% in women.
This table below summarizes how much risk a person can reduce by drinking coffee.
|More than 3|
|Results in Women|
|12%||18%||25%||Death from all causes|
Example on how to read the table:
For women drinking 1-2 cups of coffee daily, their risk of dying
(from any causes) is reduced by 18%. For women, drinking more than 3
cups daily cuts their risk of getting heart disease by a shocking 55%.
Of course all these volunteers were free of cancer, heart attack or stroke at the beginning of the study.
researchers also mentioned that in men, the protective of drinking
coffee was not as significant as for women but there were some benefits
against heart disease.
If you love coffee already, don't do anything different! Even drinking
coffee occasionally has significant health benefits. Of course, 1 to 2
cups daily is better. 3 cups or more daily is acceptable as long as you
don't get side effects from too much caffeine in the coffee.
