They found that consuming 28 cups of coffee a week increases the chances of premature death in younger people by half. The findings come from a large- scale American lifestyle study of 43,727 individuals aged 20 to 87.
The US researchers suspect excessive coffee consumption may adversely affect the body’s metabolism, outweighing some of the known health benefits. Individuals with a ‘genetic coffee addiction’ may be prone to these harmful effects, they suggest.
