Drinking three cups of coffee a day can lower the risk of stroke and deadly heart disease.



The largest-ever study into the popular beverage's impact on health has revealed that light to moderate coffee consumption was associated with a lower risk of death from stroke and cardiovascular disease.

Participants in the research were separated into three groups, with no coffee consumed by 22 per cent, light to moderate (half a cup to three cups a day) by 58 per cent and high (over three cups per day) by 20 per cent.

It found that a moderate coffee intake led to a 21 per cent lower risk of stroke and 17 per cent lower risk of death from fatal heart disease.

The study's author Dr. Judit Simon, from the Heart and Vascular Centre at Semmelweiss University in Budapest, said: "Our results suggest that regular coffee consumption is safe, as even high daily intake was not associated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes and all-cause mortality after a follow-up of 10 to 15 years.

"Moreover, 0.5 to 3 cups of coffee per day was independently associated with lower risks of stroke, death from cardiovascular disease, and death from any cause."
