Coffee May Prevent Heart Attacks [VIDEO]

Drinking three to five cups of coffee a day may be more helpful than harmful, according to a study published in the journal Heart on Monday. A team of researchers in South Korea found that people who drank moderate amounts of coffee, which is three to five cups daily, were less likely to develop clogged arteries or heart disease. Researchers examined more than 25,000 males and females, who had no signs of heart disease, by using medical scans to look for disease in the coronary arteries and factoring in potential risks of heart disease such as smoking, exercise, and family history. Researchers and the British Heart Foundation agreed that more research needed to confirm the findings and explain the connection, but the new findings add to the debate about whether coffee is actually good for the body.
