Cof­fee cuts stroke threat

Geelong Advertiser - - NEWS -

EACH cup of cof­fee you drink cuts the risk of hav­ing a stroke, new re­search sug­gests.

Every cup re­duces the stroke threat by 8 per cent – and the risk of de­vel­op­ing heart fail­ure by 7 per cent.

How­ever, sci­en­tists be­lieve the ben­e­fits plateau and pre­vi­ous stud­ies sug­gest that a max­i­mum of three cups a day can be ben­e­fi­cial.

It is also not clear how long the ben­e­fits of each cup lasts. The re­search by the Univer­sity of Colorado School of Medicine bol­sters ev­i­dence that cof­fee ben­e­fits the cir­cu­la­tory sys­tem.
