According to the latest science, drinking coffee is not just about enjoyment anymore-it might also be a way to get some important health benefits. The body of evidence on coffee's positive health effects is growing, and a new study has now found that coffee is also associated with lower levels of coronary artery calcium. Less buildup of coronary artery calcium could reduce the risk of having a heart attack. Published in the journal Heart, the study tracked 25,138 men and women who did not have cardiovascular disease. Participants underwent a health screening that included a CT scan to determine coronary artery calcium levels. Researchers discovered that:
  • Participants who drank 3 to 5 cups of coffee per day had the least amount of coronary artery calcium buildup.
  • The association between coffee intake and lower coronary artery calcium buildup remained even after adjusting for education, physical activity levels, family history of heart disease, and diet.

However, there are some important things to note in relation to this study. The study was observational and so cannot prove a cause-and-effect relationship. It also didn't distinguish between caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee; it is not clear, therefore, whether decaf would have the same effects. Further, to get potential heart health benefits, a cup of coffee should contain 8 ounces, not 20 ounces (which is the amount some people might drink in a single cup). Despite these caveats, the study is consistent with other research showing that coffee may offer some protection against heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and Parkinson's disease. In fact, the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, which guides the federal government on nutritional advice, recently determined that, at the very least, the health risk from drinking a moderate amount of coffee (3 to 5 cups per day) is minimal.
