Three shots a day helps
EACH cup of coffee you drink cuts the risk of stroke by 8 per cent and the risk of developing heart failure by 7 per cent, research shows.
However, scientists believe that the benefits plateau at a maximum of three cups a day.
The latest research, presented at an American Heart Association conference in California, bolsters evidence that coffee benefits the circulatory system.
Scientists believe the antioxidant plant compounds in the drink, rather than caffeine, are responsible for the benefits.
