4 Cups of Coffee a Day Keep the Doctor Away?
It seems coffee might even be good for your heart! A study published this week has revealed that coffee drinkers are less likely to be hospitalised by problems with heart rhythm.
In the study, 130,054 people had their coffee drinking habits tracked. The result was that those who drank four or more cups per day had an 18 percent reduced risk of requiring hospital care. People drinking 1 – 3 cups per day had a 7 percent lower risk of later problems.
Despite these findings however, researchers are keen to point out that the delicious bitter bean does not have any proven positive effects on the heart, and more studies are required to provide concrete proof. Still, it won’t stop me cranking up my daily intake – just in case!
