Could coffee stop clogged arteries for non-smokers?

By Honor Whiteman

Fact checked by Jasmin Collier

A new study offers yet more evidence that coffee is good for us, after finding that consuming more than three cups of joe every day may lower our risk of atherosclerosis, which is a major risk factor for heart disease.

One study that Medical News Today covered last year, for example, tied coffee consumption to a 70 percent reduction in liver disease, while other research has linked the beverage to a lower risk of heart attack and stroke.

The new study — which was recently published in the Journal of the American Heart Association — further suggests that coffee may protect our heart health.

Conducted by researchers from the University of São Paulo in Brazil, the study reveals that drinking at least three cups of coffee every day may lower the risk of clogged arteries, or atherosclerosis.

Atherosclerosis is a condition caused by an accumulation of plaque in the arteries. This buildup can narrow the arteries and restrict blood flow, which can lead to heart disease and stroke. Plaque comprises a number of substances found in the blood, one of which is calcium. However, for former or current smokers, drinking coffee appeared to have no benefits for calcium buildup.

I saw Doc when I was a senior at central college. He really took great care of me and the patients received great treatments. I just graduated chiropractic school 6 months ago and want to thank Doc for the motivation to pursue chiropractic school.
