How Much Coffee is too Much?

 

A new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded that drinking 6 or more cups of coffee daily may be detrimental to your lealth by increasing your risk of heart disease by up to 22%. This is the first study to study the upper limits of coffee caffeine and heart disease. In the study 347,077 participants from the United Kindom Biobank, aged 37 to 73 were evaluated in terms of the risk of cardiovascular disease in line with coffee consumption and genetic variations by focusing on the ability of the caffeine-metabolizing gene (CYP1A2) to better process caffeine. Researchers concluded that despite carriers of the fast processing gene variation being 4 times quicker at metabolizing caffeine, the research did not support the belief that these people could safely consume more caffeine, more frequently withlout detrimental health effects.   Thus, moderation in coffee consumption is need for heart health.
