Coffee in heart failure

Health Care Comments Off

A study shows coffee as cardioprotective when consumed in moderation. A meta-analysis of prospective studies mostly of people with no MI history saw their risk of incident heart failure follow a J-shaped curve in relation to coffee intake.

The risk was lowest at daily consumption of two cups by US standards. That protection slowly goes away with five or more cups per day said Dr Elizabeth Mostofsky from Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard School of Public Health, Boston. The meta-analysis of five trials was published online June 26, 2012 in Circulation: Heart Failure.
