"Granted, it's preliminary research that hasn't appeared in a peer-reviewed journal yet, but based on these researchers" and others' findings, there's mounting evidence that coffee's combo of caffeine, natural antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory effects somehow helps fight off very bad cardiovascular conditions.

Researchers used a machine to analyze data from the long-running Framlingham Heart study, which has investigated heart disease for more than 60 years.
The research was presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions, "a premier global exchange of the latest advances in cardiovascular science for researchers and clinicians", according to the American Heart Association.More news: Iraqi Kurds seek talks after federal court bars secession
Could more coffee make a difference?The researchers used machine learning and data from the Framingham Heart Study to examine what people eat and their heart health.
But researchers are still behind this learning technology. They found that consuming coffee was associated with a seven percent decreased risk of heart failure and an eight percent decreased risk of stroke compared to those who did not consume coffee.
The machine-led analysis by the University of Colorado was then compared with two other studies done on more traditional lines to get the overall trend.
"Machine learning may a useful addition to the way we look at data and help us find new ways to lower the risk of heart failure and strokes".More news: Jerry Jones 'laughs' in the face of National Football League attacks
Although the findings were consistent, the researchers emphasize that the association is not necessarily causal, so we shouldn't jump to any conclusions just yet.
The researchers even determined that whether someone drank coffee or not could help predict their eventual risk of heart failure or stroke. Further investigation to better determine how red meat consumption affects risk for heart failure and stroke is ongoing. The researchers tried to run a similar analysis for the consumption of red meat but the connection was more hard to validate because the definition of what counts as red meat varied between the Framingham Heart Study and those studies that were comparable. Other dietary patterns, such as convenience, sweets, Southern, or salads/alcohol style, were not related to the reduced risk of heart failure. Previous research has suggested that coffee's caffeine content, along with its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, may be responsible for its presumed health benefits.
Senior author Professor David Kao added: "By including coffee in the model, the prediction accuracy increased by four percent".
Scientists from Icahn School of Medicine in NY recruited 15,569 participants for the diet study and monitored their health for four years. They hope that machine learning methods will be effective in uncovering hitherto unknown culprits.More news: Survivors Of Sexual Abuse Honoured At Glamour Women Of The Year Awards
