THE BRONX - A new study presented today at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions meeting found new evidence that caffeine may reduce the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease.

Researchers in Japan found that measured blood flow was 30-percent higher when participants had regular coffee instead of decaffeinated coffee.

Bronx residents had mixed comments about the study.

"I never heard of this and I never drink coffee in my life, and I'm perfectly healthy and so is my heart," said Nicole Joseph.

Bronx resident Jacqueline Beaumont agreed with the study and said that coffee stabilizes her and she believes she is going to live longer.
