Moderate coffee consumption is not associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk, says research.
Recently, a new review paper1 had suggested that for most healthy people, moderate coffee consumption is unlikely to adversely affect cardiovascular health.
Furthermore a new paper2 concluded that higher green tea and coffee consumption is inversely associated with risk of CVD and stroke in the general population.
Considerable research has also been devoted to investigating associations between coffee consumption and key risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as hypertension (high blood pressure) and elevated cholesterol.
Most evidence suggests that regular moderate consumption of caffeinated coffee has no long-term effect on blood pressure and does not increase the risk of hypertension.
