Say it ain’t so… ‘cup of Joe’

According to a study, they now find 4-cups of coffee or more per day is harmful to your health. Heck, it could actually kill you. So says the report.

If that is the case, this may be my last post. Wait, I probably shouldn’t be here now. I might as well go check into the nearest hospital and wait because 4 cups wouldn’t wake me up in the morning.

Now I know I’m in big trouble.

More than 4 cups of coffee a day increases the risk of an early death, says study

More than four cups of coffee a day could send you to an early grave, according to a study.

Researchers found that people under 55 who drank more than 28 cups of coffee a week were at an increased risk of early death from all causes, with a more than 50 per cent increase in mortality.
No adverse effects were found in heavy coffee drinkers aged over 55, according to the findings published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings.
In America, more than 60 per cent of adults drink coffee every day, with an average consumption of three cups.
But it has long been suspected to be linked to a number of health conditions, with studies suggesting it could contribute to cardiovascular disease.
For the research, nearly 45,000 people were studied between 1979 and 1998.

Hold that coffee thought

According to WebMD:

Coffee may taste good and get you going in the morning, but what will it do for your health?
A growing body of research shows that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are:
  • less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia
  • have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes
“There is certainly much more good news than bad news, in terms of coffee and health,” says Frank Hu, MD, MPH, PhD, nutrition and epidemiology professor at the Harvard School of Public Health.
But (you knew there would be a “but,” didn’t you?) coffee isn’t proven to prevent those conditions.

But I was SO… going by that WebMD report, dang.
So I have to have a cup of coffee and think about it.

Any chance that they could want to off us early per Obamacare and socialized medicine?
Take away my coffee and I’ll start mixing metaphors and all kinds of crap – and that’s another point of contention. Ah, I’ll take the WebMD report.

    Well hell Bull, I guess we now know what happened to Juan Valdez! I only drink two POTS of coffee a day, so guess I’m screwed. Oh, and I smoke also so I’m really in deep shit.

    When are these geeks going to figure out we start dying the very day we are born and we all die of something??? Shit, throw a cartoon of Marlboro’s and a can of Folgers in my six foot deep bed. At least I be chilled out while I’m dead…

      Dave: well, cups-pots… almost same thing, no?. They didn’t say what size of cup. I’m the most regular person with coffee. Without it I’d be miserably irregular. (mileage may vary)

      You’re probably on their hit list too. What’s next? I bet Obamacare is “chock-full” of all kinds of nutty rules to promote miserable irregularity while trying to normalize us. We’re screwed.

      Right, last I checked, no one escapes death. Adam and Eve took care of that pretty well. Speaking of family influences: my granddaughter told me, “grandpa you drink a lot of coffee”. I said “yea I do”. I asked, “Do you like me?” She said “yea I do”. I said “good, let’s keep it that way.”

      LOL Chill. Maybe we just stand there and wait. But they’ll have us dig the hole too.

    I saw this on Fox yesterday and immediately thought Oh, no, the government at it once again. This they can add to their list of NO-NOs for us peasants. Ron drinks several pots a day. I drink 2 cups as it makes me shake after that. But, we both love our coffee and I’ll go with the WebMd any day.

      Pepp, Yea sort of strange to take WebMD on this. But I will. I noticed in this new study that the excess is not a problem for people over 55. So they seem to be focused on or obsessed with younger people. I don’t know. That made me scratch my head.


      • pepperhawk says:


        It made me scratch my head too. OK, here’s the strange part. They are only concerned with people up the age 55. Well, those who drank that much coffee are the same ones who are over 55. So it makes no sense whatsoever, but when does the gubmint ever make sense. I think this is for Obamacide. It’s going to be one more thing they can charge you a higher premium for, drinking so much coffee. After 55, they’ll just kill us outright by denying care. So they are just concerned with those younger folks. All to get more money. I read that if you smoke, are overweight, took drugs sometime in your life, then those people all get charged higher premiums sometimes as much as 90% higher.
