Coffee Consumption Does Not Increase Heart Disease Risk

While we know coffee protects against several diseases, a recent study also shows that coffee drinkers have no increased risk for heart disease.  A German study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition studied over 40,000 people without chronic conditions over a decade and found that healthy adults enjoying up to 4 cups of coffee daily are at no more risk than their non-coffee drinking friends.

Despite previous studies that produced conflicting results, this study showed that coffee drinkers and non-drinkers were similarly likely to develop both ailments. It also showed coffee drinkers are about 23% less likely to develop Type-II Diabetes, which is on par with several other studies.
