There’s more great news for coffee lovers to buzz about: Two cups of java a day could be healthy for your heart.
CBS News reports that research shows drinking about two eight-ounce cups of coffee lowered the risk of heart failure by 11 percent. But, sorry, Starbucks fanatics. The network adds that drinking four to five cups o’ joe daily ups your risk by the same amount. (Sad trombone.)
“This is good news for coffee drinkers, of course, but it also may warrant changes to the current heart failure prevention guidelines, which suggest that coffee drinking may be risky for heart patients,” Elizabeth Mostofsky, lead author of the study, says in a news release reported by the network. “It now appears that a couple of cups of coffee per day may actually help protect against heart failure.”
So our question is: Does it still count as one cup if it has two shots of espresso? Just askin’.
