Coffee: grounds for concern?

The latest chapter in the coffee vs. health debate comes from Stanford University researchers. In the March 8 JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION they report finding a positive correlation between elevated cholesterol and daily consumption of more than two cups of coffee a day.

The California researchers measured coffee intake and cholesterol in 77 men, and adjusted for age, cigarette use, fat, fitness, food intake and stress. They note that what they found was an association, not a direct proof of cause-and-effect.
