Caffine Not Linked To Heart Risk

Whew, this is a relief.
According to a new study on more than 120,000 people over a period of twenty years, there is no link between heavy coffee drinking and a raised risk of coronary heart disease. Heavy coffee drinking means you consume six or more cups per day. The study found that the heart risks for heavy coffee drinkers is no different from those who only have one cup or less per month.
But I'm not out of the woods yet.
The researchers pointed out that there may be some groups of people who are still susceptible to heart risk from drinking too much coffee. Some people carry a gene that makes it more difficult for the body to metabolise caffeine.

Also ... people with hyptension.

Those with severe hyptension and/or CRF are limited to only about 12 ozs of coffee a day.

To me - the coffee is still worth the risk! ;o)
