How much coffee is too much? Scientists decode

Latest Lifestyle News      Six or more cups of coffee in a day could be dangerous Study

There are approximately 24,000 coffee shops across the nation and more than 50% of Americans over the age of 18 - more than 150 million people - drink coffee daily, according to a report issued in 2017 by E-Imports, a coffee industry consultant.

Elina Hypponen said that coffee is one of the most commonly consumed substances that helps to boost energy, wakes us up, and also helps to focuses on work.

"We also know that risk of cardiovascular disease increases with high blood pressure, a known effect of excess caffeine consumption", she said.

So no, there's no reason to completely cut out coffee, but it is smart to pay attention to how much you're really drinking.

Having set out to uncover the relation between long-term coffee consumption and heart disease and to explore the potentials of the caffeine-metabolizing gene, the researchers made quite interesting findings.

According to the World Health Organization, heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide-and yet one of the most preventable.

So as to keep up a strong heart and a sound circulatory strain, people must restrain their coffee less than six glasses per day, analysts said.

"It is hard to calculate, but my feeling is that drinking coffee possibly adds another couple of years to your life", said Astrid Nehlig of France's National Institute of Health and Medical Research in Sunday Times, explaining that part of the reason could be improved focus that a cup of brew brings.

The findings come from the analysis of data from the UK Biobank that included 347,077 participants aged 37 to 73 years old.

In other words drinking coffee can play a role in helping people to live longer. "Knowing the limits of what's good for you and what's not is imperative", says Hyppönen.

In two new research papers, experts tackle the ideal amount of coffee to drink every day: two to four cups to improve life expectancy, but no more than five cups to avoid the adverse effects.

Previous studies have found multiple other benefits of drinking coffee, including reducing the risk of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. However, another group of scientists find that six or more cups of coffee could lead to higher risk of cardiovascular disease. Six or more cups, they say, increases heart disease risk by up to 22 percent.

The chemical acrylamide, which is found in coffee as a byproduct of the brewing process, has also been linked to cancer (it's most likely not risky in the amounts found in coffee, though).
