How much coffee is too much coffee? The answer might shock you!


For many, coffee is the lifeblood of their day.

As a writer whose work dwells in the here and the now, this dark and magical concoction has been a prerequisite of my life for the last several years.  I’ve become a bit of a nerd about it too, (as maybe my previous beer-brewing days could have suggested), and the drink is on my mind in the mornings more often than it is not.

Iced Americano with an extra shot of espresso, if anyone was wondering.

There are no shortage of memes, tropes, and anecdotes regarding the brewed beverage.  Coffee is a worldwide phenomenon, not unlike cigarettes or soda, but a new study seems to indicate that this is one vice that shouldn’t give way to the same health-centric guilt that we experience with the aforementioned treats.

Researchers with the William Harvey Research Institute at Queen Mary University of London said they debunked previous studies that claimed drinking coffee — even up to 25 cups a day — would stiffen arteries.

“Despite the huge popularity of coffee worldwide, different reports could put people off from enjoying it. Whilst we can’t prove a causal link in this study, our research indicates coffee isn’t as bad for the arteries as previous studies would suggest,” Dr. Kenneth Fung, who led the data analysis for the research, said.

The study itself was enormous.

Analyzing more than 8,000 people in the United Kingdom, the study divided people into three groups depending on their coffee consumption. Fung said that while the study did include people who drank up to 25 cups per day, the average amount of coffee participants drank was five cups per day.

“We would like to study these people more closely in our future work so that we can help to advise safe limits,” he said of those who drank the latter.

This research seemingly flies in the face of previous medical studies whose authors believed that the massive punch of caffeine that comes with a cup o’ Joe could work to harden arteries.
