something i found about the great drink of COFFEE!
For those of you that wake up to your favorite roasted bean every morning, the findings of a new large government study conducted on frequent coffee drinkers encourage your daily habit. The results revealed that frequent coffee drinkers are at a lower risk of dying from various diseases, compared to those that do not drink coffee, or do not drink coffee very frequently.
Surprisingly, they found the coffee drinkers were at a lower rise of heart disease. Cardiologists in Dearborn MI, a team of top physicians, who help their patients assess their risk for heart disease, may find this study of interest when working with patients to lower their risk of heart disease.
Numerous studies have been conducted on the effects of coffee, as it is a world-wide beverage that many people cannot live without. Health experts, who advise their patients on what to eat and what not to eat, need to know if coffee is safe or detrimental to some health conditions. Coffee contains caffeine, which temporarily increases the heart rate, as well as hundreds of compounds and antioxidants. Given the well-known connection between coffee and smoking, this study controlled for smoking, as well as poor eating habits.
After controlling for other health conditions and poor health habits, the researchers found that over the course of 14 years the risk of dying was about 10 percent lower for men and about 15 percent lower for women who drank two to six cups of coffee a day.
