Drink all the coffee you want- it doesn't damage your heart scientists have discovered

But a new study of more than 8,000 people found that drinking five cups a day - and even up to 25 - was no worse for the arteries than drinking less than a cup a day.

The 8,412 people research were put into three separate groups based on the number of cups of coffee consumed on a daily basis: Less than a cup, one to three cups, and more than three cups.

For the study, experts from the QMUL (Queen Mary University of London) divided 8412 people into three groups.

A new study published Monday states that coffee isn't as bad for the human heart as previously thought.

Select past studies have found a possible link between drinking coffee and developing stiffer arteries, which increases risk of having a stroke or heart attack.

The results of the study contradict earlier research that claims drinking coffee increases arterial stiffness, which the researchers say is inconsistent and could be limited by lower numbers of participants.

Factors such as age, weight and smoking status were taken into account.

The participants underwent MRI heart scans as well as infrared pulse wave tests.

The study, partially published in the journal Heart, was presented this week at a British Cardiovascular Society conference.

"There are several conflicting studies saying different things about coffee, and it can be hard to filter what we should believe and what we shouldn't", Metin Avkiran, associate medical director at the British Heart Foundation, says in a press release.

A big job, thus understandably monitored closely, especially if a produce such as coffee may be considered a reason for increased heart and circulatory issues.

Naturally, for a long time, there's been plenty of debate about how good or bad coffee is for you. A total of 3892 were included in the 1 cup or less group, 2978 in the 1 to 3 cups per day group, and 1542 reported drinking more than 3 cups per day.

Prof. Metin Avkiran, who is Associate Medical Director at the British Heart Foundation, and who was not involved in the current research, explains that such studies about the relationship between coffee consumption habits and heart health can help individuals make better-informed decisions.

Coffee lovers now have scientific evidence that it's safe for your heart to have as much as 25 cups a day, according to a new study. Does coffee harm, improve, or have no effect on cardiovascular health?

Still, scientists are pouring over the details to figure out how it all works.
