Therapist Lishin said about the risk of a heart attack from drinking coffee in the heat
Therapist Viktor Lishin said that drinking a number of drinks is dangerous for the body in hot weather. About this he informed in an interview with Ura.ru.
Lishin revealed the dangers of drinking coffee in the heat and stated that it increases the risk of a heart attack. The drink has a diuretic effect, which leads to dehydration. This increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, the specialist warned.
“In general, the heart suffers from coffee. Coffee constricts blood vessels, while extreme heat causes them to expand and lower pressure. If you already have problems with pressure, then coffee will increase it even more. Coffee will not directly cause a heart attack, but if there are already concomitant problems with the heart and blood vessels, it can provoke it, ”he emphasized.
The doctor added that in hot weather you can drink no more than one or two cups of coffee a day. After that, you should fill the lack of fluid with a glass of water. Lishin warned that cold drinks in the heat cause colds.
“It is better to drink warm, hot tea or water, and refuse cold water. It lingers at the level of the stomach, is not absorbed by the intestines and does not quench thirst well, ”the doctor concluded.
