Drinking 28 cups of coffee a week raises risk of death in young people
Drinking 28 cups of coffee a week raises risk of death in young people (August 15, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From South Carolina - Drinking nearly 30 cups of coffee a week greatly raise risk of death in younger people, according to a report published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings. Researchers studied over 40,000 men and women, aged 20-87, taking part in the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study. Participants submitted medical history questionnaires assessing their lifestyle habits, as well as their family history, during the 16 year follow-up period. Results showed that those who consumed more amounts of coffee were also more likely to smoke and had lower levels of cardiorespiratory fitness. Drinking more than 28 cups of coffee a week raised risk of dying from all causes by 21% in all of the participants. In those under 55 years of age, drinking more than 28 cups of coffee a week raised risk of all-cause mortality in people by 50%.
