If youre 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 warnbut only if youre 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.

“More than four cups of coffee a day puts you at risk of early death...”
Doesn’t everything these days?
Its the only thing that keeps my corpse animated. I died years ago.
Less than four cups a day puts those around me at risk of an early death.
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.
I know it’s early but you are in the lead for comment of the day...
As long as each cup of coffee is countered by 3 beers, all is well.
I usually drink just one cup per day. It’s a really big cup.
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.
Gimme a break. I quit smoking after 40 years ( well ok 39)cuz it was going to kill me. Now my severe coffee habit is in cahoots with the grim reaper too. What’s an aging, cranky guy to do? What vices are left (that won’t kill me). Can’t go for a younger woman or my wife will kill me fo sho!
So we die. WHATEVER.
Can't. Giving you a break has been linked to disease and early death.
Cant go for a younger woman or my wife will kill me fo sho!
Count on me to take one for the team.
So i can boost my brain and live a shorter time Or live long and slowly have my mental faculties diminish. I will opt for fuller shorter life.

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.
