Is Coffee Associated With Heart Disease?

Question: Is coffee associated with heart disease?

Answer: Drinking a modest amount of coffee -- one to two cups a day -- is not associated with an increased risk ofheart disease . However, for people with hypertension, their blood pressure may go up after consuming a cup of coffee.

And for people who already have heart disease, it may be too much of a stimulant and they should be talking to their doctor before consuming coffee.
