Coffee won’t give you heart disease after all

Here’s a nice link I found on CNN:
Coffee by the Tank Car Does Not Increase Risk of Coronary Heart Disease – CME Teaching Brief – MedPage Today
BOSTON, April 24 – Gallons and gallons of coffee, day in and day out, year after year, decade after decade, do not increase the risk of coronary heart disease, researchers here reported today.

In fact, men and women who drank six or more cups of coffee a day for up to 20 years had a slightly lower relative risk of developing coronary artery disease than men who consumed a cup or less a day (P for trend= 0.41 for men and 0.08 for women) according to a study in the April 25 issue of Circulation, Journal of the American Heart Association.

Now I don’t remember my statistics class that well but I’m glad to hear that anyway.
