Chattanooga, TN – Pulse:

A ten-year study shows that drinking two or three cups of coffee a day lowers the risk for heart disease, stroke, and other heart disease-related issues by 10% to 15%.   Almost 383,000 men and women were a part of the analysis. Another analysis by the UK Biobank found coffee drinking was associated with lower mortality rates.  Because this is an observational study, a direct cause and effect cannot be proven, but there does appear to be a connection.
