A couple of cups of coffee a day can be not only safe, but also beneficial to the heart, say the Australian experts from the Baker Institute. According to them, this drink reduces the frequency of arrhythmias, than indirectly reduces the likelihood of a heart attack.
Although recently there is a lot of scientific work on the beneficial effects of coffee on the body, this drink continues to be considered more harmful to the heart. Nevertheless, experts believe that in reality this is not quite so. They summarized the results of two studies, the first of which involved 228,465 people, and the second – 115,993 people. As it turned out, drinking coffee significantly reduces both the risk of atrial fibrillation and their frequency.
Scientists argue that the prevailing opinion about the dangers of coffee is based more on specific cases and speculations than on objective statistics. According to researchers, a person can drink up to three cups of coffee a day without harm to the body. At the same time, experts suggest that tea has similar properties, since it also contains caffeine, although it is four times less.
Scientific work was published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
This is not the first study, the authors of which come to the conclusion that coffee can benefit the cardiovascular system. In the past year experts from the American Heart Association came to the conclusion that this drink reduces the risk of heart failure and stroke. Many other specialists also insist that coffee brings more benefits to a person than harm. In particular, according to some studies, this drink protects from senile dementia, helps to lose weight, increases fertility and even reduces the chances of developing cirrhosis. At the same time, other scientists argue that the abuse of coffee is fraught with the development of inflammatory processes in the genitourinary system and some other chronic diseases.
