Caffeine intake in relation to the risk of primary cardiac arrest.

Fondness for caffeinated beverages may increase an individual's chances of suffering from primary cardiac arrest.

​This study evaluated the connection between increased dietary exposure to caffeine and the risk of primary cardiac arrest. Researchers compared the caffeine intake levels between 362 patients who suffered from primary cardiac arrest and 581 healthy individuals. 

Researchers observed that the more the amounts of caffeine consumed, the greater the likelihood of suffering from primary cardiac arrest, particularly among never smokers. The findings of this study suggest that individuals who want to cut down their risk of primary cardiac arrest should avoid the consumption of caffeinated beverages.
