Dangers of drinking coffee every day
According to the latest research, drinking a cup of coffee every day or two cups may actually be good for the heart.
Pooling results from five studies of coffee consumption and the risk of heart failure, published between 2001 and 2011, a study led by Dr. Murray Mittleman of Beth Israel Deaconess's Medical Center in Boston reported in the journal Circulation: that regular coffee drinkers have a lower risk of heart failure than those who did not drink coffee.
Among the participants of the 140.220 included in the analysis, those who drink coffee with 4-5 European version (the equivalent of 2 cups of coffee in America) have a risk of heart failure 11% lower during the study compared with those who do not consume coffee. Those who consume less coffee had the risk of a larger heart failure i.e. only 4%, as well as those who consume 9-10 cups per day where the risk of heart failure will increase.
Findings regarding heart failure prevention guidelines, which suggest that coffee may harm the heart may need in review again, the authors noted, "Although there is a general belief that regular coffee consumption can harm cardiovascular health, our research shows the opposite," said Mittleman.

"These results are very satisfying, because many people with heart failure or hypertension are advised to drink coffee," said Dr. Elizabeth Ross, a spokesman for the American Heart Association (AHA), which is not involved in the study. AHA currently recommend coffee in number-one to two cups a day — for cardiac patients.
More about the results of research on the potential health benefits of coffee. Previous research shows that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of diabetes, cancer and stroke. The data shows, for example, that people who drank more than six to seven cups of coffee a day had a 35% less likely to suffer from type 2 diabetes than those who drank two cups or less a day. And because type 2 diabetes increases the risk of heart disease, coffee drinkers can also find smaller heart problem. In a study in 2009 that involves 83,000 women, those who drank 1-2 cups of coffee each day had a 20% lower risk of stroke than those who drink less. Other studies have shown that coffee drinkers have a risk of up to 65% lower for stricken with nervous disorders such as Parkinson's disease or Alzheimer's.
