Metro UK’s news According to the study’s author Professor Peter Kistler, the most well-known ingredient in coffee is caffeine, but the drink contains more than 100 biologically active components. The beans in coffee are rich in antioxidants, which help the body flush out dangerous molecules like free radicals. This reduces the risk of heart diseases. Our findings suggest that drinking all types of coffee in moderation should not be discouraged, says Peter Kistler.
4 lakh 49 thousand 563 people were included in this study. He was asked many questions like- how many cups of coffee he drank every day and what kind of coffee did he usually drink. These people were divided into 6 categories. These categories were – those who did not drink coffee, those who drank one cup of coffee, those who drank 2 to 3 cups of coffee, those who drank 4 to 5 cups of coffee and those who drank more than 5 cups of coffee. The highest 44.1% of the people involved in the study took instant coffee. Ground coffee drinkers were 18.4 percent, while 15.2 percent were decaffeinated coffee drinkers.
In the study, 1 lakh 510 people i.e. 22.4% did not drink coffee. Researchers kept an eye on everyone’s health records. It was found that those who drank 2 to 3 cups of coffee daily were older and were away from heart disease. Many information was also collected from the medical records and death records of the people. These findings have been published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.
