How much coffee is too much? | newkerala.com #141250

Two cups of coffee a day could help you live longer

Most of the people agreed that drinking lots of coffee may feel you irritable, jittery, and even nauseous at times.

The findings, likely, won't have much of an impact on most of us in the U.S. - the average American drinks 1.6 cups a day (compared to eight in Finland, the coffee capital of the world, according to the International Coffee Organization).

According to new research published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, excess caffeine can lead to high blood pressure, which, in turn can cause heart disease. According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death, yet one of the most preventable. "In order to maintain a healthy heart and healthy blood pressure, people must limit their coffees to fewer...cups a day".

"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.

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", she said.

Open at Torrey Pines, which Woods played on shredded ligaments in his left knee and a double stress fracture in the leg. Outside of Tiger, Reed is the best all-around player on this list. "He got his [injury] fixed for some reason".

"An estimated three billion cups of coffee are enjoyed every day around the world", Hypponen said. In fact, the researchers also found that participants who didn't drink coffee at all-and those who drank decaf-also had higher rates of heart disease (11% and 7% higher, respectively) than those who drank one to two cups per day.

"As with many things, it's all about moderation; overindulge and your health will pay for it".

It's a question Dr Labos has addressed before, in an op-ed for the Montreal Gazette in 2014, in which he broke down various studies on the risks of caffeine after the FDA issued a warning about caffeine consumption.

They used the UK Biobank data of 347,077 participants and found an increase in cardiovascular disease risks to be in line with increasing coffee consumption and genetic variations.

After adjusting for lifestyle factors, such as smoking and diet, the scientists found that those who drank the most coffee had a lower risk of death in comparison to those who spent their lives coffee free.

If you're someone who can't function in the morning without your daily boost of caffeine and you simply can't help but to reach for an aromatic cup of roasted coffee around 3pm, here's something you might want to know.
