His team tracked about 1,200 adults with untreated stage 1 high blood circulation pressure. That means they had systolic blood pressure between 140 and 159 mm Hg and/or diastolic blood circulation pressure between 90 and 99 mm Hg. Over 12 years, there have been 60 heart or circulation-related events – – incidents such as heart strokes or attacks – – among the participants. About 80 % were heart attacks, as the others included strokes, peripheral artery disease and kidney failure. Compared to those who didn’t drink espresso, the risk of these events was 4 times higher amongst the heavy espresso drinkers and three times higher in moderate coffee drinkers.
