A recent study carried out by the Louisiana State University School of Public Health in New Orleans has revealed that drinking coffee is safe for health. The researchers have claimed that the new study doesn’t show any harmful effects of drinking coffee on the patients of high blood pressure or hypertension.
Drinking coffee doesn’t seem to increase the risk of high blood pressure. Previous studies have claimed that drinking excess of coffee is linked with heart disease, stroke, and a shorter life expectancy. Some scientists have also suggested that coffee might increase blood pressure.
Dr. Gary Curhan of Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston said that drinking large amount of caffeine could have adverse effects on the health of a person. People who drink more than five cups of coffee per day would be more likely to develop some health complication in later life as compared to those who drink very less.
Experts believe that relationship between coffee drinking and blood pressure is quiet complicated and further researches are required to have a clear view of the link. They believe that drinking coffee less frequently is safe for health.
