Coffee is a widely consumed beverage that is enjoyed by many people. It is known for its ability to provide energy and improve focus. However, a recent survey has revealed that coffee consumption can have different impacts on the health of men and women.
According to the survey, men should be cautious about their coffee consumption habits as it can increase their risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). On the other hand, women can consume coffee without worrying about such health hazards as they have a natural protection against the growing lipid levels caused by coffee consumption.
The study, which was published in the American Journal of Cardiology, analyzed data from 2.2 million patients who participated in 32 studies conducted between 1977 and 2020. The researchers found that there was a direct relationship between coffee consumption and the risk of CHD for men, but the opposite was true for women.
The reason for this difference may be due to the way female sex hormones such as progesterone and estrogen regulate lipid oxidation levels, which play a role in determining plaque formation in the vessels.
The team also suggested that moderate coffee consumption is less likely to lead to CHD and that drinking decaffeinated coffee does not reduce the risk.
