Two cups of coffee a day can reduce the risk of heart failure and other ailments


Two cups of coffee a day can lower risk of heart failure, and that's good news, because heart failure has a worse survival rate than many cancers. 

The research suggests that regularly drinking moderate amounts of coffee can cut the odds of the cardiac trouble.
But on the other hand, drinking coffee all day is counter-productive.

The research showed that those who drank one or two cups of coffee a day were 11 per cent less likely to develop heart failure than those who don't drink coffee.
Heart attack survivors gained as much benefit as those with healthy hearts.
But before anyone starts thinking about drinking five or more, not so fast, researchers say, the extra cups a day isn't good for the heart.

Researchers really don't know why coffee seems to cut the odds of heart failure.
But other research also indicates that drinking coffee can help people live longer.
The US government researchers found that coffee you drink may be beneficial for people with ailments such as: heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke, injuries, accidents, diabetes and infections, but not cancer.
It is also known that some people inherit genes that make them more reliant on caffeine than others.
Those with the 'caffeine addict' genes, need to drink more coffee to get the same buzz.
