Wake up and smell the coffee! Coffee is a stimulant that helps many people to remain active and energetic throughout the day. It is something that keeps people going, take the workload and stress head on and keep the adrenaline flowing. More so, it is also been considered to have numerous health benefits. However, just one mention of coffee being linked to the heart attacks has come as a major jolt on all the coffee lovers. Let’s delve a little deeper into the subject.
1. There are contradictory reports all over the media about coffee being instrumental in triggering coronary diseases.
2. Researchers say that medium coffee drinkers who consume coffee four to five times a day are at a lower risk of getting heart attack after having coffee.
3. Risk is poised at rather light drinkers who do not consume more than once a day.
4. Coffee contains caffeine that is responsible for increasing blood pressure immediately after the intake of coffee, thereby triggering the nervous activity. This may be the cause of heart attacks.
5. However, just intake of coffee has not yet been proved to be the ultimate culprit.
6. Inactivity and lifestyle disorder are much more important factors that cause heart disease.
7. Coffee has been said to be particularly beneficial in preventing Parkinson’s disease, diabetes and cancer.
8. Medium coffee drinkers who consume four to five times have been marked safe by the medical fraternity.
9. As per the medical practitioners, for people with inactive and sedentary lifestyle, one cup of coffee can trigger sudden heart attack. ‘Pulling the last straw’ – as it has been mentioned in various research and quotations by the physicians.
10. Hence by a lay man’s language, a sloth, inactive person with absolutely erratic eating habits has a higher risk of getting heart attack after having a cup of coffee simply because his body is not active enough at that moment to handle the rising rate of blood pressure and nervous activity, causing the heart to give up on its functioning capacity.
