Closers: Drink Up to 25 Cups of Coffee Per Day
Drink up closers! Research led by Professor Steffen Petersen from Queen Mary’s William Harvey Research Institute suggests that drinking coffee is not that bad for your heart.
The study examined more than 8,000 people across three groups of coffee drinkers, those drinking less than 1 cup per day, those drinking 1-3 cups per day, and those drinking more than 3 cups per day. Those surveyed in the 3rd group drank an average of 5 cups of coffee per day but multiple people reported drinking as much as 25 cups per day (or even more!). Even for them, “no increased stiffening of arteries was associated with those who drank up to this high limit when compared with those who drank less than one cup a day,” the report said.
Although the report did not reveal the identities of those surveyed, deBanked suspects the individuals drinking 25 cups of coffee per day are sales closers. For one, these individuals clearly did not put the coffee down.
Dr Kenneth Fung, who led the data analysis for the research at Queen Mary University of London, said “Whilst we can’t prove a causal link in this study, our research indicates coffee isn’t as bad for the arteries as previous studies would suggest.”Last modified: June 3, 2019
