Rome, Oct 27.- The unsuspected positive effects of coffee is the issue of the 29th Cardiology Conference in Turin, Italy, starting today in the presence of experts from Germany, France, Switzerland and the United States.
The central theme of the event, bringing together more than 600 specialists for two days in the northern city of Turin, is 'Advances in Cardiac Arrhythmias and Great Innovations in Cardiology'.
Among the issues of the event is prevention as the best treatment to save lives and therapeutic innovations to avoid sudden death.
A press release issued by the organizers on the event's website states that 'global mortality is declining thanks to a new awareness of risk factors' as well as knowledge of what is good for heart and body health in general.
According to Sebastiano Marra, director of the cardiovascular department at Maria Pia Hospital in Turin, taking four or five cups of coffee, even if decaffeinated, a day reduces cardiovascular mortality.
He also said that drinking that infusion has a positive effect, because 'coffee bean contains the most antioxidant substance.'
According to the source, research conducted to more than 10,000 people show that those who drink coffee in a long period have less anxiety, sleep better and do not have the highest blood pressure of those who do not drink it. (Prensa Latina)
