After adjusting for demographics, lifestyle habits and diseases and conditions that might cause heart flutters, "each additional cup of habitual coffee consumed was associated with a 3% lower risk of incident arrhythmia," wrote corresponding author and arrhythmia specialist Dr. Gregory Marcus, a professor in the division of cardiology at the University of California San Francisco, in the study.
