Earlier this year, for example, a 13-year follow-up study of 130,000 Americans reported that moderate coffee drinking actually reduces the risk of being hospitalised for heart rhythm problems - a somewhat surprising finding when so many people have "palpitations" after drinking strong coffee and are advised a decaffeinated variety.
