Although the advantages and disadvantages of drinking coffee have been debated for decades, new research from the University of South Australia shows that drinking six or more cups of coffee daily can harm your health by increasing your risk of heart disease by up to 22%.
In Australia, 1 in 6 people is affected by cardiovascular disease.
It is the leading cause of death with one death due to the disease every 12 minutes.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death, but it is also one of the most preventable diseases.
Researchers from the University of South Australia, Dr Ang Zhou and Professor Elina Hyppönen of the Australian Center for Precision Health say their research confirms that excessive caffeine can lead to high blood pressure, a precursor to heart disease as they investigate the relationship between coffee consumption over time, length and cardiovascular disease.
According to Prof Hyppönen, the most widely used stimulant in the world, it keeps us awake, increases our energy and helps us focus – but people often ask, how much caffeine is considered too much?
According to him, most people will agree that if you drink too much coffee, you may feel restless, irritable or even nauseous – this is because the caffeine helps your body work faster and stronger, but it may also suggest that you may have reached your limit by this time.
His research team also found that the risk of cardiovascular disease increases with high blood pressure, a known effect of excessive caffeine intake.
According to the researchers, 6 cups of coffee are critical dAccording to the researchers, 6 cups of coffee is a critical point where caffeine starts to negatively impact cardiovascular risk, and to maintain a healthy heart and healthy blood pressure, individuals must limit their intake of coffee to less than 6 cups a day.
Prof Hyppönen says that, although the carriers of gene processing speed up to 4 times faster in caffeine metabolism, research does not support the belief that these individuals can consume more caffeine safely and more often, without detrimental health effects.
Knowing what is good and bad for you is very important.
As with anything else, it is about moderation, and any excess intake will certainly be detrimental to your health.
