We are all there. 4pm. Your eyes are heavy. Doing a war with your subconscious of whether the 25 flat white are worth it.
Well, I do not look any further! A new study says it is safe to consume 25 cups of coffee per day without causing any significant damage to the heart.
While drinking 25 cups of coffee can not damage the heart, high levels of caffeine consumption certainly damage other systems in the body.
The information was introduced at a conference of the British Cardiovascular Society earlier this week and has not yet been published in a peer reviewed journal. The research had a sample of 8,500 coffee-drinkers, which were then compared to non-coffee drinkers.
While there was debate over unwanted coffee effects for all eternity, recent developments have shown that coffee consumption has a number of health benefits, including improving heart health and longevity.
That being said, drinking more than 400 milligrams of caffeine per day can lead to headaches, stomach and liver problems, restlessness and dangerous high blood pressure.
While this study successfully rejected one of the potential adverse effects of coffee consumption, no one recommends 25 (at least not in this economy).
