Coffee Is Good For You - Maybe

I love farking science!

One day we are told that coffee is bad for your heart, and that the caffeine contained within it is addictive. Another day we are told that coffee is good for you.

Research conducted in Korea, and published in the journal Heart, now suggests that drinking a few cups of coffee a day may help people avoid clogged arteries.

However, some studies have linked consumption to heart risk factors such as raised cholesterol or blood pressure.

Guess what?

There is no conclusive evidence either way!

As ever with research, trying to come to a "one size fits all" conclusion simply doesn't work. Indeed British Nanny doesn't like having her advice about the dangers of coffee undermined, especially by non Brits.

Victoria Taylor of the British Heart Foundation is quoted by the BBC:
"While this study does highlight a potential link between coffee consumption and lower risk of developing clogged arteries, more research is needed to confirm these findings and understand what the reason is for the association. 

We need to take care when generalising these results because it is based on the South Korean population, who have different diet and lifestyle habits to people in the UK."
Thus, as with all research and conclusions drawn by Nanny's vested interests, it is better to ignore the research and simply indulge in your pleasures with common sense, moderation and balance (allowing for the occasional binge).

After all, we are all going to die one day no matter how abstemious we are!

    I find it strange that Mrs Taylor says that we should take care when generalising the results of the research, and then goes on to generalise the dietary habits of the population of Vietnam and the lifestyle of the entire population of the UK.

  2. ""more research is needed""

    Meaning, "Give us more taxpayers cash".
