“Coffee Is Generally Heart-Friendly”
But it may be linked to a slight rise in high blood pressure, researchers say Coffee drinkers can take heart from a series of studies presented this week at American Heart Association conferences in San Francisco. For example, coffee drinkers appear to have a lower risk of hospitalization for abnormal heart rhythms. And there's no indication that having a few cups every day increases the risk of atherosclerosis, the thickening of blood vessel walls that can lead to heart attacks and other problems. What's more, something in coffee other than caffeine might be responsible for a reduced risk of diabetes for women who regularly imbibe java. But it may be linked to a slight rise in high blood pressure
The heart rhythm research looked at the rate at which 130,054 members of the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program were hospitalized for heart rhythm disturbances. About 2 percent of them had hospital stays because of such abnormalities, the most common being atrial fibrillation. But the risk was 18 percent lower for those who reported drinking four or more cups of coffee a day, compared to those who didn't drink coffee, said Dr. Arthur Klatsky, a senior consultant in cardiology for the program, who led the study. "It might be a surprise, because coffee does give some people the jitters," Klatsky said. "And I don't think we're ready to tell people they should drink coffee to prevent heart rhythm problems."
The study didn't offer any reason why coffee might reduce heart rhythm problems, Klatsky said. "It could be that coffee drinkers have better diets or exercise more. We can't say for sure that it might not be related to minor heart rhythm problems that don't require hospitalization."
The bottom line: "Coffee drinkers don't have to quit because they have heart rhythm problems," Klatsky said. "That's about as far as...
...Coronary Heart Disease:
1) Explain in detail what Coronary Heart disease is.
Coronary heart disease is where plaque builds up in the coronary arteries which supply oxygen rich blood to the heart. The plaque narrows the coronary arteries which reduces the amount of blood flow of the heart. This may lead to further medical problems like heart attacks and even lead to death.
2) What are the risk factors for coronary heart disease? (what increases your risk for coronary heart disease)
Age: Getting older increases risk of damaged and narrowed arteries.
Gender: Men are generally at greater risk of coronary artery disease. However, the risk for women increases after menopause.
Family history: A family history of heart disease is associated with a higher risk of coronary artery disease
Smoking: Nicotine constricts blood vessels, and carbon monoxide can damage their inner lining, making them more susceptible to atherosclerosis.
High blood pressure: Uncontrolled high blood pressure can result in hardening and thickening of arteries, narrowing the channel through which blood can flow.
High blood cholesterol levels: High levels of cholesterol in blood can
increase the risk of formation of plaques and atherosclerosis.
Diabetes: Diabetes is associated with an increased risk of coronary artery disease, both conditions share similar risk...
...COFFEE USE - HEART RATE
COFFEE USE - HEART RATE
The study used for this project is a nursing and health sciences study. One particular healthcare facility is trying to determine if it is a good idea to provide coffee in the waiting room for the patients. There are several other facilities that serve tea, coffee, and water, so this health care facility wants to determine if there is sufficient evidence to show that coffee increases the patient heart rates.
The question that I as a researcher want to answer is whether ingesting coffee, increases ones heart rate. The independent variable of this study is Coffee, and the dependent variable in this study is Heart Rate. The confounding or lurking variables in this study are the amount of coffee consumed, what patients ate prior to providing sample, age of patients, diet of patients, existing medical conditions of patients, and the exercise regimen of the patients. Other confounding variables could be the amount of tobacco and alcohol use, and possible white coat syndrome. The type of data is quantitative, and it is measured at the interval level, numeric data with no natural zero point; intervals (differences) are meaningful but ratios are not. The sample for this study is 15 patients from a local health care...

What is coffee? Coffee is a drink that has been drunk as early as the sixteenth century. Cowan Brian quotes from Rauwolf who describes coffee, “as black as ink”. (Cowan Brian, 2005a, p.17) The drink is bitter in taste and has a wide variety of aromas and flavors....
I. A. About the Industry
Coffee is a brewed beverage with a distinct aroma and flavor, prepared from the roasted seeds of the Coffea plant. A coffee plant is usually a bush or small tree that grows to 10-12 feet (although it can grow up to 32 feet) and can produce coffee beans for decades. It can live for between 60 and 70 years. It can take up to four years for a coffee tree to reach maturity and bear fruit.
The English word coffee originates from the Arabic word ‘kaweh’ meaning strength or vigor. The seeds are found in coffee "cherries", which grow on trees cultivated in over 70 countries, primarily in equatorial Latin America, Southeast Asia, South Asia and Africa. Green (unroasted) coffee is one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world. Coffee is slightly acidic (pH 5.0–5.1) and can have a stimulating effect on humans because of its caffeine content.
Commercial coffee is grown in an area between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn affectionately known as the “bean belt”. In order for the coffee plant to thrive, it needs moderate sunshine and rain, porous soil and constant temperatures between 65 and 75ºF.
Before the coffee bean can be used to make coffee, it has to be roasted. The roasting process changes the color of the green coffee beans. First they...
Stent and Angioplasty:
A stent is a mess tube used to treat narrow or weak arteries (blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart to other parts of the body).
The stent is placed in the artery as part of an Angioplasty procedure. Angioplasty restores blood flow into narrow or blocked arteries. The stent helps to support the inner wall of the artery after the angioplasty.
Doctors also place stents in weak arteries to improve blood flow and prevent arteries from bursting.
If one or more of the valves in your heart is diseased or damaged, it can affect he way your blood flows through your heart by obstructing the flow of blood. This is called valve stenosis or narrowing. It also may allow blood to leak backwards. This is called valve regurgitation, on a leaky valve.
Valve replacement is when the diseased valve is replaced with a new one. The most common types of replacement valves are mechanical (artificial) valves or tissue (animal) valves
In the operation, a surgeon makes an incision down your breast bone, opens up the heart to reach the valve and performs the replacement.
If you have coronary heart disease the doctor might suggest a bypass operation to improve the blood supply to your heart muscle.
Your arteries narrow when fatty deposits build up on the inner walls of your arteries. The aim of bypass...
Regardless the state of the country, one can realize that coffee is one of the most favorite products among American people. It has remained in the top positions for some decades. However, drinking coffee is not only the consumption of a product; it has become a daily activity. It is normal to hear this question when someone wants to meet up with one person: “do you want to get a coffee tomorrow and we can talk about...?” Any excuse is good enough to get a cup of coffee. The beginning of the coffee industry dates back to the 1960’s, when a man named Alfreed Peet felt the inspiration to create the first gourmet coffee shop (Peet’s Coffee). That inspiration came, between other reasons, because he grew seeing his parents ‘coffee business (Peet’s Coffee). He was living in Holland and later in Indonesia. After that, he went to California where he thought he had the necessary knowledge to start his own business. By doing that, Peet started to produce a richer and more complex coffee that the available coffee at the market (Peet’s Coffee). Because of his marketing strategy, motivation through employees and resilience to fall, Alfreed Peet was one of the most innovative and creative entrepreneurs of coffee industry. Some people think that entrepreneurs are different from everyone else since they...
