Coffee And Cardiovascular Disease

The data for the study was used from the UK BioBank study with adults between 40-69 years of age. They researched the links between cardiovascular disease and the various versions of the drink. Coffee has a well-known constituent named caffeine but it has more than a hundred biologically active compounds. The risk is reduced likely because of the inactive compound as observed in the study. Hence the study suggests drinking 2-3 cups which is a modest number for a day of coffee consumption. This is also because the lowest risk was seen in people who consumed 3 cups in a day.
