Strap In Coffee Lovers, 25 Cups Of Coffee Per Day Is A-OK
A recent UK study has found that drinking more than three cups a day is fine for your heart health, even all the way up to 25 cups per day.
Here it is again, the old ‘Is this food or drink good or bad for me’ study. It’s a never-ending carousel ride and today the coffee horse has paused in the ‘It’s fine’ section.
Thanks to a new study partly funded by the British Heart Foundation, the latest results of a sample size of 8,000 participants has found that coffee “isn’t as bad for the arteries as previous studies would suggest.” As stated by Dr Kenneth Fung who led the data analysis at Queen Mary University London.
In fact, it’s so not bad for you that they found participants in the study who were drinking up to 25 cups a day’s heart health was on par with those who were drinking less than one cup. And if you think that’s a lot of coffee, participants who were drinking more than 25 cups per day were excluded from taking part.
Yep. 25+ cups of coffee per day. They walk amongst us. Hot tip - it’s probably the person who always has a Keep Cup in their hand.
Professor Metin Avkiran, associate medical director at the British Heart Foundation has acknowledged the variety results from previous studies in a press release: "There are several conflicting studies saying different things about coffee, and it can be difficult to filter what we should believe and what we shouldn't. This research will hopefully put some of the media reports in perspective, as it rules out one of the potential detrimental effects of coffee on our arteries."
Next step, doing something about the detrimental effects of the breath of the participants who are drinking 25 cups of coffee a day.
