More Heart Healthy News – Coffee Scores Again!
More heart healthy news about coffee. A new study out of Brazil looked at the coffee-drinking habits of more than 4,400 people.
The idea was to cross check the amount of coffee consumed with the heart health of the group and you can probably take it from here.
Researchers looked at coronary artery calcium, or CAC, which can ultimately trigger a heart attack and what they found was participants who were in the habit of drinking more than three cups of coffee per day had "decreased odds of coronary calcification."
Before you brew that second pot: the study showed a correlation but couldn't prove a direct cause-and effect, and the extra coffee didn't seem to help calcium the arteries of smokers.(UPI)
