Cup of coffee a day keeps the heart doctor away, study finds

Heart-attack patients who drink one or two cups of coffee a day are 20 percent less likely to die prematurely from heart damage compared to java teetotalers, a new study finds.

The York University study tracked 3,721 heart-attack survivors in the UK, chronicling their coffee-drinking habits.

It’s not clear how coffee helps the human body. Previous studies have found that three to five cups a day helped Parkinson’s patients. Another found it helps fight liver cancer.
