If you’re already holding your first coffee of the morning, you might want to put it down, because drinking four cups a day could raise your risk of dying young, researchers warn—but only if you’re under 55. They found that consuming 28 cups of coffee a week increases the chances of premature death in younger people by half. …

The risk of death from all causes rose by 56 percent for men and women younger than 55 who drank more than 28 cups of coffee a week, said a report in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings. …

Recent research has shown that coffee is a major dietary source of antioxidant, and it may reduce inflammation and boost brain function. At the same time, coffee stimulates the release of adrenaline, inhibits insulin activity, increases blood pressure, and raises levels of homocysteine, a harmful chemical linked to heart disease and dementia. …

I could do 4 cups of coffee 30 years ago maybe.

Nowadays, more than one and I can’t sleep that night.

Next thing they’ll say is you shouldn’t have a glass of wine every day, that in actuality it’s not good for the heart, that the media was only pressure by big-name vineyards to say that.

As long as each cup of coffee is countered by 3 beers, all is well.

More than four cups of coffee a day, and I die young.

Less than four cups of coffee a day, and everyone around me dies young.

Your choice.

Can't. Giving you a break has been linked to disease and early death.

Can’t go for a younger woman or my wife will kill me fo sho!

increases the chances of premature death in younger people by half.

Bringing it to what? 3 in 1,000,000 instead of 2 in 1,000,000?

"It increases your risk by 50%!!!!"

Enough of this "relative risk" nonsense. Just give us the "absolute risk" numbers and quit with the sensationalism.

Coffee is still good for you, this week, until someone pays for a different study.

If you drink this much coffee or more, whatever you do, DON’T quit cold turkey. There are bad withdrawal symptoms such as headaches, lethargy, constipation, and depression.

I know from experience.

I drink a grand total of only one cup of coffee a day at work. I'm more of a tea person--specifically real Chinese tea. I'm a big fan of the Dragon Well tea from the Hangzhou region of China (real Dragon Well tea from that region is quite expensive).

So .. my chances of dieing from rape and murder goes up 56% if I drink more than 28 cups of coffee a week ?

I might commit rape and murder if I drink more than 28 cups of coffee a week ... but I don't think I'll have a 56% more chance of dieing.

In other medical/scientific news: Eggs were bad for you but now they’re not, shrimp were high in cholesterol and now they’re ok too (because we put them on treadmills using stimulus money?), and a fetus isn’t a baby and can’t feel pain except it is and it can. They can pry my Keurig from my shaky, caffeinated hands.

You can enjoy your 30 cups of coffee a week and not live as long. Or you can believe all these studies and live long enough to sit in a nursing home corridor medicated into oblivion by doctors fleecing Medicare/ObamaCare.

...Soon to follow will be another study that shows coffee is beneficial to our health.

Studies and counter-studies about coffee and its benefits/drawbacks have been flying back and forth like a decades-long tennis match.

No smoking. No sodas greater than 16 oz. No salt. No coffee.

We will all live to 120 but life will be unbelievably boring.

Life is about living.....not merely extending the years!

Maybe sick people like to drink a lot of coffee to feel good and have energy.
This “study” like most is invalid.
