I don't know if anyone has brought this up yet but there's research that shows why coffee intake raises heart disease risk. It raises the blood level of homocysteine, which is a chemical that inhibits maintenance of the blood vessel walls.

For example:

Filtered coffee 'just as bad for you'

It seems that tea has a better profile but it also raises homocysteine.

This was briefly discussed in this forum here:

The BBC News article that Yar posted was published almost nine years ago. I think that since then, there have been newer studies that have shown how filtered coffee does have a benefit, in that it filters out much of the coffee oils that contain the LDL cholesterol.

My grandpa is in his nineties now, drinks filtered coffee every day and has had no heart troubles to speak of. Joint troubles, yes. Eyesight diminishing now and not many teeth left, so maybe they can pin all of that on drinking coffee next.
