“Banned” Drink Stops Heart Disease
When it comes to beverages that the mainstream loves to hate, coffee is at the top of the list.
Lots of mainstream doctors have even “banned” their patients from drinking it.
But I personally start each day with a steaming mug of coffee—and you should too.
Because this particular “bad habit” is one of the best things you can do for your health.
Studies show that coffee can improve brain function, help you burn fat, improve physical performance, and protect your liver. Plus, coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of numerous diseases, including cancer.
But this most recent study takes the cake, reminding me once again why I consider coffee to be one of the healthiest drinks on the planet.
The Framingham Heart Study is one of the largest, longest-running studies in the country. Since 1940, it has tracked more than 15,000 people in order to identify risk factors for heart attack and stroke.
The latest analysis of the data showed that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of heart failure, stroke, and coronary artery disease.
The more you drink, and better the protection.
In fact, for every additional cup of coffee you drink, you can expect an additional…
- 8% lower risk of heart failure
- 7% lower risk of stroke
- 6% lower risk of coronary artery disease
They stopped counting at six cups.
To be clear, this only establishes a link, and not a cause-and-effect relationship.
But when study after study shows the same links—including other major heart studies, like the Cardiovascular Heart Study and the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study—those links become stronger and stronger.
I, for one, didn’t need another reason to savor my morning cuppa joe. But if you’ve been on the fence, this should give you the push you need to hop on over.
It sure is tasty over here.
To a brighter day,
Dr. Richard Gerhauser, M.D.
p.s. Ready for more good news? Another recent study showed that people who drink 3-5 cups of coffee per day have a 40% lower risk of liver cancer than those who don’t.
