3 cups of coffee healthy, 5 is too much
« on: May 13, 2019, 03:38:24 AM »
Over the past few years, a series of studies have come out showing that drinking. Drinking a lot of coffee--has significant health benefits.

- A study in which researchers funded by the American Heart Association and the University of Colorado School of Medicine found that risk of heart failure or stroke went down 8 percent for each additional cup of coffee per day.
- A British study of 498,123 people found that the ones who habitually drank coffee were between 10 and 15 percent less likely to die during any 10 year period than non-coffee drinkers.
- A Stanford University study that tracked 100 people over several years, and found that coffee drinkers tended to live longer than non-coffee drinkers. Here, the theory--just a theory, but still -- was that increased caffeine consumption might counteract the "fundamental inflammatory mechanism associated with human aging."
- A Spanish study found that drinking four cups of coffee per day led to a 64 percent lower risk of dying among study participants compared to non-coffee drinkers.

But too much of anything is very bad for you.

According to this new study out of South Australia, "In order to maintain a healthy heart and a healthy blood pressure, people must limit their coffees to fewer than six cups a day - based on our data six was the tipping point where caffeine started to negatively affect cardiovascular risk," said Professor Elina Hyppönen of the Australian Centre for Precision Health, one of the study's authors.

Specifically, once you reach six cups of coffee per day, the risk of heart disease increases by 22 percent according to the study.

The study was published in the March 2019 edition of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, and publicized last week.
