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 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.
