Recent studies bring good news to coffee lovers with some heart problems or cholesterol: coffee does not harm arteries!
The scientific research conducted by Queen Mary University in London leaves no doubt. The stiffening of the arteries cannot be associated with coffee consumption, even in individuals who drink many cups of espresso a day.
The research was conducted on eight thousand volunteer coffeelovers.
It is known that thickening of the arteries, large blood vessels with the task of transporting oxygen-rich blood from the heart to other parts of the body, can cause serious health problems. The workload of the heart increases and therefore increases the likelihood of having a heart attack or a stroke. The research of the London University was conducted on eight thousand volunteers, divided into three groups: those who drink maximum 1 coffee a day, those between 1 and 3 and those over 3. Other factors were also considered: age, sex, ethnicity, weight, height, alcohol and smoking consumption, type of diet, blood pressure values. All the tests conducted by scholars have shown that there is no relationship between coffee consumption (even 25 cups a day) and damage to arteries.
