Really good news: The new rules about how much coffee is OK
We know what you’re thinking.
***Here we go, another bulltish report into coffee…***
But this time it comes from a PROFESSOR.
The Director of Electrophysiology at The Alfred, Peter Kistler, no less.
And he has some really good news to share.
a) Coffee has no negative impact on heart regularity;
b) Coffee-drinkers actually have a “six to 13 per cent reduction in our most common heart rhythm disorder, atrial fibrillation”.
“There’s a common misconception and about 80 per cent of doctors globally will tell people with palpitations that they need to stop drinking coffee,” Professor Kistler told 3AW Breakfast.
So a sensible amount of coffee is good for heart rhythm.
But how much coffee is that?
“It looks like anywhere between two and six cups a day is beneficial to the rhythm of the heart.”
Be right back. Getting coffee.
