There is a number of health benefits derived from moderate coffee consumption, but a recent study is showing that it could even reduce heart attacks. The latest study was conducted using over 25,000 participants measuring calcium levels in the coronary artery. Researchers believe that drinking 3 to 5 cups of coffee a day can lead to a reduction of clogs which ultimately leads to less risk for heart attacks.
The findings of this study have been controversial along with many other studies linking coffee to health benefits. In the past, drinking coffee has been linked to a reduction of risks with skin cancer, endometrial cancer, and multiple sclerosis. Other scientists have been able to link coffee to higher cholesterol and hypertension which would increase the likelihood of a heart attack.
Scientists who worked on this study are adamant that they saw a link between the coffee consumption and a lower amount of artery clogging calcium. Everyone agrees that they study will have to be researched more and results will have to be replicated many times.
