Coffee drinkers, take heart. A new analysis of studies on coffee and health has found that while the caffeine bean can raise your pulse, it produces no ill effects on the hearts of moderate coffee drinkers.
 
The review — conducted by the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee, a non-for-profit organization devoted to the study and disclosure of science related to coffee and health — concludes there is ample evidence that for most healthy people, moderate coffee consumption is unlikely to adversely affect cardiovascular health.
 
What's more, higher coffee and higher green tea and coffee consumption may even lower the risk of heart attack and stroke in the general population.

"Overall, the body of evidence suggests that moderate habitual coffee consumption is not associated with detrimental effects on cardiovascular health," the researchers concluded, noting "extensive research" has examined the potential health benefits and risks of coffee.
 
The new review notes the evidence from most studies suggests that regular moderate consumption of caffeinated coffee has no long-term effect on blood pressure, does not increase the risk of hypertension, and has no negative impacts on cholesterol.
 
Researchers did point out, however, that it may be possible to get too much of a good thing, with a recent study finding a potential increase in mortality rate in those drinking more than 28 cups of coffee a week.
