The news on coffee and health keeps getting better and better. The latest comes from a study in the journal Heart which says people who drink a lot of java appear to be at lower risk of clogged heart arteries than non-coffee drinkers.
The study looked at more than 25,000 people — average age 41 — with no symptoms of heart disease. All had calcium scans done on their hearts. That “calcium score” is a fairly reliable indicator of whether the heart arteries have plaque or blockages building up.
