The new study was based on 503 cases of nonfatal heart attacks in Costa RicaJava junkies can take some comfort from the fact that the risk was higher among light coffee drinkers .
As a result of these findings, people at high risk of a heart attack who are occasional or regular coffee drinkers would consider leaving the coffee at all, says researcher Ana Baylin, a research associate at Brown University School of Medicine in Providence, RI, in a press release.
Although the study was conducted in Costa Rica, the researchers say the results are relevant for the United States, because the Americans and Costa Ricans have the same habits of caffeine. Cutting the Risks
Research in the September issue of Epidemiology suggests coffee can trigger a an hour in some people.
In the new study, moderate drinkers of coffee raised the risk of heart attack by 60 percent with a cup of coffee.
Couch potatoes and those with other risk factors were at higher risk of having a heart attack after drinking a cup of coffee, the study found.
His findings appeared in the March 8 issue of JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association.
For those who are not regular users, and other risk factors, getting that jolt of caffeine is probably a shock to the system, he says.
Coffee drinkers on the other hand, previous studies have shown can be a decreased risk for diabetes and certain cancers. Most at risk for light drinkers
For these people, the risk of heart attack increases by four times when they were engaged.
Most of the funding required – about $ 7 billion – would go to President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS, including 5.74 billion dollars for bilateral HIV / AIDS, $ 251 million for programs TB bilateral and a $ 1 billion to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria .
For people with risk factors for stroke and those with a sedentary lifestyle, a cup of coffee could be the last straw, said Ahmed El-Sohemy, PhD, Associate Professor of Nutrition University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada .
We know that caffeine causes a transient increase in blood pressure, so those who are not regular consumers are not accustomed to, and get that surge and a vulnerable heart, that could be the trigger, said said.
Baylin and colleagues suggest caffeine causes short-term an increase in sympathetic nerve activity and that could trigger a heart attack.
Baylin, who works in the department of Brown, adding that for these individuals, a cup of coffee could be the straw that broke the camel’s back .
