Drinking coffee ‘is good for the heart’


Just in time for my morning coffee and I find this story. Please let this study be correct. According to a resent study, one to three cups of coffee a day may protect people from heart disease and strokes. Of course they do mean consuming in moderation. Just three huh? Hmmm.

The good news for coffee drinkers comes from a report in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and is based on a study of 27,000 older women, followed for 15 years.

Dr Sarah Jarvis, a fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners said: “This is a message about moderation. Too much exercise, too much coffee or too much alcohol are bad. In moderation they are beneficial.”
