Moderate coffee consumption may lower risk for subclinical coronary atherosclerosis

March 6, 2015

Healthy adults in Korea who drank three to five cups of coffee per day had lower risk for subclinical coronary atherosclerosis compared with higher and lower consumption.

Researchers included 25,138 participants in Korea without clinically evident CVD (mean age, 41 years; 83.7% men). The participants underwent health screening that included CT scans to detect coronary artery calcium (CAC) scores and self-reported daily coffee consumption using a food-frequency questionnaire.
