The old myth that coffee stunts your growth isn't the only thing our parents lied to us about. In fact, it turns out drinking coffee may actually help you live a longer, healthier life! And also, your mom really wanted to keep her coffee to herself.
Healthcare Triage combed countless scientific studies for a new video that shows coffee is in no way harmful to your health, and what's more -- cue the espresso shots -- it's likely good for you.
According to a study by the American Heart Association, people who drink a "moderate amount" of coffee (3-5 8oz cups a day) were at the lowest risk of heart disease, and people who drink 5 or more cups a day were at no more risk than non-coffee drinkers. Go rub that in your condescending coworkers' faces! Additionally, drinking 2-6 cups a day was associated with a lower risk of stroke. And in terms of heart failure, coffee consumption needed to reach around 10 cups a day before there were any risks seen. Seriously, who is drinking 10 cups of a coffee a day, and do you need a hug?
