Background — Considerable controversy exists regarding the
association between coffee consumption and cardiovascular disease
(CVD) risk. A meta-analysis was performed to assess the
dose-response relationship of long-term coffee consumption with
CVD risk. […]
Conclusions — A non-linear association between coffee
consumption with CVD risk was observed in this meta-analysis.
Moderate coffee consumption was inversely significantly
associated with CVD risk, with the lowest CVD risk at 3 to 5
cups/d, and heavy coffee consumption was not associated with
elevated CVD risk.
I like that 5 cups of coffee per day qualified as “moderate”. That’s right around what I consume.
