Heart study has good news for female coffee drinkers

June 10, 2011

The report finds deaths are no higher in coffee lovers with heart disease.

This adds to a mixed bag of research on whether caffeinated coffee is a hazard for those with heart issues.

The new study followed 12,000 nurses with a history of heart disease or stroke. Those who had a few cups of coffee a day were no more likely to die than the non-coffee drinkers.

Other studies have found the same results, and a few others have even hinted at protective effects of coffee.
