In Germany dispelled myths about the benefits and harms of coffee and alcohol on heart health

Cardiologists from the Federal Association of recognized cardiologists of Germany, after conducting research, compiled a list of recommendations to help protect the heart from disease.

Doctors also answered the question that coffee increases blood pressure and negatively affects the heart. It turned out that coffee briefly increases blood pressure. And those who drink it regularly, the indicator does not change. And those who drink coffee live longer and are less likely to face cancer.

During studies, cardiologists have found that regular consumption of the drink reduces the risk of diabetes and dementia.

But the assumption about the benefits of red wine for blood circulation was not confirmed. It turned out that even small doses of alcohol cause arrhythmia.
