Research from the University of Melbourne and Monash University found that drinking 2 to 3 cups of coffee a day reduced the risk of premature death for any cause, including heart disease, heart failure or coronary heart disease, by 15%.
These are basically the results of 3 research reports for which the researchers used the data of UK Biobank.
The data surveyed the health of more than 500,000 people for at least 10 years.
The amount of coffee they drank was also known when they joined the study.
New research now examines the relationship between coffee drinking and the risk of increasing or decreasing the risk of various heart diseases.
The first study focused on more than 382,000 people who did not have heart disease and whose average age was 57 years.
The results showed that people who are accustomed to drinking 2 to 3 cups of coffee a day have a lower risk of developing heart disease later in life.
According to researchers, people who drink just one cup of coffee a day have a lower risk of stroke or coronary heart disease.
Another study looked at the health effects of different types of coffee.
Research has shown that drinking 2 to 3 cups of any type of coffee a day reduces the risk of heart disease.
The third study included people who had already suffered from irregular heartbeat or other heart disease.
The results of this study found that coffee consumption does not increase the risk of irregular heartbeat, but that such patients drink a cup of coffee a day reduces the risk of premature ejaculation.
The results of the three research reports will be presented during the 71st Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology in early April.
