One of the myths about coffee has been debunked

Medical experts from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Austin debunked the myth that coffee is harmful for people with irregular heart rhythms, reported MedicalXpress.

The researchers reviewed the existing literature on risk factors for patients with atrial fibrillation. It turned out that drinking caffeine in normal amounts not only did not increase the risk of arrhythmia, but even reduced it.

This result is consistent with another study conducted in 2021, which demonstrated that increased coffee consumption was associated with a reduced risk of developing heart failure later in life. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the safe daily intake of caffeine for healthy adults is 400 milligrams of caffeine per day, which is equivalent to about four or five cups of coffee. However, some people are sensitive to caffeine, so drinking coffee can make them feel worse. /BGNES
