How much (or little) coffee should one drink?

Classé dans : Cuisine, Santé — Miklos @ 16:15

CNBC reports a study carried out by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) according to which “Drinking 25 cups of coffee a day is still safe for the heart”.

New research from the University of South Australia reveals that “drinking six or more coffees a day can be detrimental to your health, increasing your risk of heart disease by up to 22 per cent”.

Unless both studies use a different counting scheme than linear and decimal, or unless drinking coffee upside down (in Australia) is safer than drinking it standing up (in the UK), while drinking it lying down hasn’t been studied yet, I am at a loss to figure out the logic of the science behind all this, and, more pragmatically, what I should do.

For now, I might as well stick to the research published in the European Journal of Epidemiology which states that “Moderate coffee consumption (e.g. 2–4 cups/day) was associated with reduced all-cause and cause-specific mortality, compared to no coffee consumption.”
