Coffee is ‘good for the heart’, new research finds

Drinking one to two cups of coffee per day is good for the heart, researchers have found.

(Telegraph) — A study of elderly people aged between 65 and 100 found those who drank moderate amounts of coffee a day had more elastic blood vessels around the heart.

People with high blood pressure should be encouraged to drink moderate amounts of coffee, the authors said, based on the results.

Previously, opinion has been divided over whether coffee is good or bad for the heart.

The research was conducted by the University of Athens on almost 700 elderly residents of a small island called Ikaria, in Aegean Sea, where more than a third of people live to the age of 90 or more.

The research focused on 485 of the residents who had high blood pressure and tested their blood vessels using a heart scan.
