New York: Contrary to worries among some doctors and the public, drinking coffee may protect your heart instead of causing or worsening heart problems, find a new study.
According to three research abstracts, drinking two to three cups of coffee daily has been associated with a 10 per cent to 15 per cent lower risk of getting heart disease, heart failure or a heart rhythm problem, or dying early for any reason, CNN reported.
"We found coffee drinking had either a neutral effect meaning that it did no harm or was associated with benefits to heart health," said researcher Peter M. Kistler from the University of Melbourne.
For all the studies, the researchers used data from UK Biobank, which follows the health outcomes of more than 500,000 people for at least 10 years.
When joining the registry, participants reported that their coffee consumption fell on a range from up to a cup to six cups or more daily.
The authors of the current research wanted to examine the relationship between coffee drinking and heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias), cardiovascular disease, including coronary heart disease, heart failure and stroke, and total and heart-related deaths among people with and without heart disease.
The first study focused on more than 382,500 adults who did not have heart disease and was age 57 on average. Participants who drank two to three cups of coffee daily had the lowest risk for later developing the heart problems the study focused on, the researchers found.
People who drank roughly one cup of coffee per day had the lowest risk of having a stroke or dying from cardiovascular disease.
Another study looked into the relationships between different types of coffee caffeinated ground, caffeinated instant and decaffeinated and the same health outcomes. Whether the decaf coffee was ground or instant wasn't specified.
Drinking one to five cups of ground or instant coffee a day was linked with lower risks of having arrhythmia, heart disease or failure, or stroke. Drinking two to three cups of any type of coffee every day was associated with a lower risk of dying early or from heart disease.
Participants analysed in a third study were those who already had arrhythmia or a type of cardiovascular disease. For people with cardiovascular disease, no level of coffee intake was found to be linked with developing arrhythmia.
Of the adults with arrhythmia, coffee intake especially one cup per day was associated with a lesser risk of premature death. (agency)

When it came to deaths, Kerala had the least when compared to other states," said Vijayan.He said statistics now proves that even though there was a feeling that there might be a surge in new cases after the Onam festivities, such a thing has not happened."A comparison of figures between August 14 and September 3 points out that while the number of positive cases increased, those getting admitted to the hospitals has come down. These are good signs," said Vijayan."We will now again meet on Tuesday to finalise things and until then the present night curfew will continue and so would tomorrow (Sunday) be observed as a lockdown day across the state," added Vijayan.He also pointed out from now on every person in the state has to play the role of a Covid warrior and from now on, anyone who breaks Covid protocols while in quarantine would be dealt with seriously."Only if a Covid positive person has independent bathroom facilities and with no co-morbidities will be allowed to observe home quarantine and the family will have also to quarantine themselves. If there is any breach of the protocols, then such people will have to undergo paid quarantine at a government centre," said Vijayan.He said on Saturday, 29,682 people turned Covid positive after 1,69,237 samples were tested in the past 24 hours and the test positivity rate was 17.54 per cent.A total of 25,910 people turned negative and the total active cases stand at 2,50,065.There were 142 Covid deaths and the total death tally rose to 21,422.--IANSsg/skp/
Thiruvananthapuram, July 12 (IANS) Angry traders having their business establishments at Kozhikode, launched a massive protests on Monday and clashed with the police on the streets."We want to live, who will pay our debts. This cannot go on indefinitely," were the cries of protests that rendered the air at the once busy Kozhikode Mitayi Therevu (Sweet Street).Joining the protesters were the Youth Congress activists and with both these groups out on the streets, the police also got into their act and started arresting them under the violation of Covid lockdown rules.As per the Covid protocol in the state, shops can open depending on which category (A, B, C, D) they belong to based on the test positivity rate of each local body."As of now, Saturday and Sunday are total lockdown and apart from that, places are categorised. We feel these are totally unscientific. There has to be an end to our misery as life has to go forward. If these are the ways things are going forward, not many will be left. This has to change, if not, suicides will increase," said an angry group of protesters.Hearing about the protests spilling on to the streets, local Minister A.K. Saseendran, in charge of Forests and one who hails from Kozhikode, assured that things will be looked into, while the state Local Body Minister M.V. Govindan also promised the traders that he will see how things can go forward."See, we are only following the basic rules that have been laid down. According to the rule of law, the protesters have been arrested and let out on bail. We can only do this," said a top police official at Kozhikode.However, the leader of the traders body T. Nasirudhin said, Monday's protest was not one under their organisation and it was a natural one."These days it's difficult to contain the members of our body. The Muslim festival of Eid-Ul-Adha is round the corner and it's natural for all traders to get some business and hence shops should be allowed to open," said Nasirudhin.Kerala has been caught badly in the Covid pandemic and close to 23 per cent of the new daily Covid cases are from the state and the active cases are over one lakh and hence the state government is continuing with such strong lockdown measures.--IANSsg/skp/
