Protects coffee from arterial blockage?

There is hardly a topic that has been researched and discussed so much as the consumption of coffee and its effects on our health. A recent South Korean study, published in "Heart," has now shown that starting with a certain amount of coffee per day, there is a lower risk of getting an artery blockage and, consequently, a heart attack. The study
Researchers at Kangbuk Samsung Hospital in Seoul examined 25,138 men and women with a mean age of 40 who showed no signs of heart disease. The study participants were then asked about their dietary behavior. In addition, the concentration of calcium in their arteries was determined using a CT.
The average amount of coffee consumed by the participants was 1.8 cups per day and in 13.4% of the individuals, calcium was detectable in the arteries. The coffee drinker comparison
Subsequently, the Samsung Hospital team compared the ratio of calcium levels from the non-coffee group with different levels of coffee consumption. For one cup of coffee a day, the calcium ratio was 0.77, one to three cups 0.66, and more than five cups 0.81. The least affected by calcium deposits was the group, which consumed three to five cups of coffee per day. For them, the rate was 0.59.

The result of the study
The research team also provides an explanatory attempt: Regular coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes. Diabetes itself is a major risk factor for atherosclerosis. Drinking coffee should improve insulin sensitivity and beta cell function, protect against clogging of the arteries, and thus minimize the risk of having a heart attack. All that remains is to say: No coffee, no workee!
