We all know someone who just loves coffee, and you tend to always see them with a cup of coffee... at any hour of the day!
Though we may not encourage it but, a new study says that drinking 25 cups of coffee in a day is still safe for the heart.
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) ran a survey on the hardening of arteries that pump blood from the heart to other parts of the body in relation to drinking coffee. The stiff arteries can increase stress on the heart and raise the risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
However, a recent research by the British Cardiovascular Society (BCS) claims that after looking at heart scans of 8,412 people, the previous mythos about poor heart health due to coffee has now been debunked.
The study however did exclude people who drank more than 25 cups of coffee a day, but claimed that there were “no increased stiffening of arteries associated with those who drank up to this high limit.”
Professor Metin Avkiran, Associate Medical Director at BHF said that the research will hopefully put some of the media reports in perspective as it rules out one of the potential detrimental effects of coffee for our arteries.
Though the study claims drinking 25 cups of coffee is alright, we still wouldn’t recommend downing that many cups a day though!
