Study Finds That Drinking Caffeinated Coffee Is Not A Risk Factor For Cardiovascular Disease

May 11, 2011: 11:46 AM EST
A multinational team of researchers who studied health data from 11,697 women with cardiovascular disease found that drinking a few cups of caffeinated coffee each day does not increase or lower the risk of dying from a second heart attack or stroke. Over 24 years of follow-up (1980-2004) the researchers documented 1,159 deaths, 579 of which were caused by cardiovascular disease (CVD). However, caffeine intake was not associated with the total number of deaths, nor with the deaths from CVD. "Our results suggest that coffee drinking is okay for patients with cardiovascular disease,” the researchers concluded, but cautioned that it would be best to conduct similar studies in other populations.
