Drinking coffee does not cause irregular heartbeat, a new study says

Atrial fibrillation, a common type of irregular heartbeat is not caused by drinking too much coffee, according to a new study by a Swedish University and published in the journal BMC Medicine.

The study from Karolinska Institute in Sweden showed that neither men nor women faced an increased risk of atrial fibrillation.

In addition to looking at their own data, the team at the Karolinska Institute also looked at six other studies on atrial fibrillation and drinking coffee, and they all confirmed the same results.
