Different scientists have different views on the effect coffee has on our body. Some of them call it a “divine drink” (not merely because of its taste but for its valuable assets as well), others blame it for all kinds of “cardinal sins”, such as early death due to acute conditions of the cardiovascular diseases. The fact that caffeine increases blood pressure was discovered long time ago, but as it turns out, other components found in coffee neutralize this effect.
A recent study has shown, that regular consumption of coffee is not related to death risk in mid-aged people. Increased consumption of the drink is not connected to higher risks of cancer development as well. On the contrary, coffee is good for us since it enhances the circulatory system.
Moreover, scientists have discovered that women, who drink 2-3 cups of coffee a day, have 25% less chances of dying from cardiovascular diseases than those, who don’t consume the invigorating drink. Men need larger quantities – 4-5 cups of coffee a day.
