Drinking Four Cups of Coffee a Day May Reduce Heart Rhythm Disturbances
Love coffee? Then you could be ahead of the game.
We already know that a piping hot cup of the good stuff can help stave off diabetes, but are you aware that drinking four mugs worth of coffee a day may also protect the heart?
Dr. Arthur Klatsky, a cardiologist who works for Kaiser Permanente, oversaw a recent study involving more than 130,000 men and women. Those consuming four or more cups of java a day had an 18 percent lower risk of going to the hospital for heart-related abnormalities (such as disturbed rhythm).
Klatsky said the study did not prove that coffee products aide the heart, but that there certainly seems to be a link.
“These data might be reassuring to people who drink moderate amounts of coffee that their habit is not likely to cause a major rhythm disturbance,” he stated. (Daily Mail)
