As it is always said many thing excesses can be dangerous to the body. Drinking coffee more than 6 cups can exceed the caffeine content that the body can accommodate.

A research done by the University of South Australia, published in March 2019 in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition had shown that heavy coffee consumption was associated with a modest increase in CVD risk. and concluded saying the magic number that pushes coffee to a point is six.

This study on the long term effects of coffee consumption in relation to cardiovascular disease was headed by UniSA researchers Dr. Ang Zhou and Professor Elina Hyppönen of the Australian Centre for Precision Health.

The research was conducted with a pool of 347,077 participants aged between 37 and 73 years-old. “An estimated three billion cups of coffee are enjoyed every day around the world,” Prof Hyppönen adds.

“Knowing the limits of what’s good for you and what’s not is imperative. As with many things, it’s all about moderation; overindulge and your health will pay for it.”

According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death, yet one of the most preventable.
