Their results showed that compared to those who drank just one to two cups of coffee daily, people who drank six or more were 22% more likely to develop cardiovascular disease during the study period.

The study authors believe that coffee (in large quantities) and heart problems may be linked because excess caffeine consumption can cause high blood pressure, a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

Utilizing UK Biobank information of 347,077 members matured 37-73 years, the examination investigated the capacity of the caffeine-metabolizing gene (CYP1A2) to better process caffeine, identifying increased risks of cardiovascular disease in line with coffee consumption and genetic variations.

Researchers discovered that keeping coffee consumption under six cups per day was unlikely to affect heart health.


As per the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular disease is the main cause of death, yet a standout amongst the most preventable.

"It is hard to calculate, but my feeling is that drinking coffee possibly adds another couple of years to your life", said Astrid Nehlig of France's National Institute of Health and Medical Research in Sunday Times, explaining that part of the reason could be improved focus that a cup of brew brings. That being said, the researchers also found that study participants who either never drank coffee or only went for decaf actually had 7% to 11% higher rates of heart disease than those who drank one to two cups of regular coffee per day.

The study's authors analyzed dietary patterns and health records of almost 350,000 participants between ages 37 and 73. People with this gene could metabolize coffee faster than others.

How Many Cups Of Good Brew Should You Indulge In Daily?


According to a new meta-analysis, drinking two cups of coffee daily can apparently increase one's life expectancy by up to two years!

She further added that according to the study of the above data, to maintain a healthy heart and high blood pressure, people must start using the limit of coffees to less than a six cups a day.

"As with many things, it's all about moderation; overindulge and your health will pay for it". Irrespective of the cause, nutritional concerns need to be addressed in this condition in order to prevent morbidity and mortality.

In fact, previous studies suggest that drinking lots of coffee may have many health benefits including reducing your risk of type 2 diabetes and certain cancers as well as boosting brain health and metabolism.
