They should be considered preliminary until peer-reviewed for publication in a medical journal.

While many risk factors for heart failure and stroke are well known, the researchers believe it is likely that there are as-yet unidentified risk factors.

The researchers utilized data from a a nationwide observational study of stroke risk factors in people aged above 45, called "Reasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke" (REGARDS).

"The risk assessment tools we now use for predicting whether someone might develop heart disease, particularly heart failure or stroke, are very good but they are not 100 percent accurate", said Laura M. Stevens, first author of the study and a doctoral student at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

Heart disease is responsible for 70,000 deaths each year in the United Kingdom, making it one of the countries biggest killers.

The American Heart Association suggest limiting red meat, which is high in saturated fat, as part of a healthy dietary pattern that should emphasize, fruit, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, poultry and fish.

Because these studies simply observed people's health and coffee consumption over time, the analyses were only able to determine a link between the two-not a cause-and-effect relationship. Nearly all of the coffee drinkers in the study (97%) consumed between one and six cups of coffee a day, says Stevens, so the researchers can't know for sure if the benefits continue at even higher consumption levels. When they did this, using the data sets from the Cardiovascular Heart Study and the Atherosclerosis Risk In Communities Study, they found the same association.

Well, in addition to maybe preventing liver disease, cancer, and erectile dysfunction, scientists say there's exciting new proof coffee might make your heart healthier. 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.

Heart failure is a potentially fatal condition that occurs when the heart is too weak to pump blood efficiently around the body. "We don't yet know if it is the coffee intake itself or another behaviour that might go along with it", she says. The current risk-assessment tools used to predict whether someone might develop heart disease are very good, the authors noted in their presentation, but they're not 100% accurate, suggesting that more risk factors could still be identified.

In the first instance, the researchers employed the random forests algorithm in machine learning to examine data sourced from the Framingham Heart Study, which has been running since 1948, providing crucial information about cardiovascular health.
