Question: Coffee and heart
|superguydotcom - Fri Jul 02, 2004 12:20 am||
How many cups of coffee would it take to give someone a heart attack? Could that person sue the coffee maker (provided they survive)?

Coffee is not mentionned as one of the major risk factos for heart disease. It can cause some palpitations and has been incriminated in the development of hypertension, but it has never pointed out as a direct cause of heart attacks.
Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
