I am a huge coffee drinker and do not like starting my day without a fresh cup. And did you know drinking at least one cup of coffee a day could help reduce the risk of heart failure according to the nypost.com?

The report, which was published Tuesday in the journal Circulation: Heart Failure, determined there was a benefit to java consumption by looking at data from three major studies.

This was a study with people who didn’t drink coffee. Coffee drinkers were found to have less of a risk of heart failure between 5 and 12% for each cup they drank on a daily basis.
