Two Cups of Coffee Per Day May Decrease Odds of Developing Heart Failure
Could two cups of coffee a day keep the heart doctor away? A new study shows that your daily cup of joe might provide that health benefit.
The study, published in Circulation Heart Failure, shows that, to a point, moderate coffee drinking may significantly lower the risk of heart failure. But don’t overdo it - the study also found excessive coffee drinking may increase the chance of getting major heart problems.

“While there is a commonly held belief that regular coffee consumption may be dangerous to heart health, our research suggests that the opposite may be true,” said senior study author Dr. Murray Mittleman, director of the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Research Unit at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, in a press release.
Heart failure occurs when the heart can no longer pump blood to the rest of the body and its most commonly caused by coronary artery disease, a narrowing of the blood vessels that provide oxygen and blood to the heart.
