Coffee Drinking May Cut Heart Disease Risk, Prolong Survival
People without cardiovascular disease (CVD) with that level of coffee intake, compared with those who weren't coffee drinkers, showed significantly reduced risks of death and a range of CVD endpoints, the reductions ranging from 8% to 15% over about 10 years.

In a separate analysis, participants with CVD at baseline also showed significantly improved survival with coffee intake of two to three cups daily, and no increased risk of arrhythmias.

The researchers identified 382,535 participants in the UK Biobank cohort who were free of CVD at baseline. Their median age was 57, and 52% were women.

Those who reported regular daily intake of two to three cups of coffee, compared with those who were not coffee drinkers, showed significantly reduced risks of CVD, CHD, heart failure, arrhythmias, and death from any cause over 10 years (P < .01 for all endpoints). The hazard ratios (HR) and 95% CI were:
HR, 0.91; 95% CI, 0.88-0.94 for CV disease
HR, 0.90; 95% CI, 0.87-0.93 for CHD
HR, 0.85; 95% CI, 0.81-0.90 for heart failure
HR, 0.92; 95% CI, 0.88-0.95 for arrhythmia
HR, 0.86; 95% CI, 0.83-0.90 for death from any cause.

Regular coffee drinking, especially a daily intake of two to three cups, is not only safe for the heart but may be cardioprotective.
