Heavy Coffee Consumption Linked With Increased Risk of All-Cause Death Michael O'Riordan Aug 15, 2013

COLUMBIA, South Carolina— Drinking more than four cups of coffee per day does more than increase the risk of the jitters, a new study suggests[1]. Researchers report that heavy coffee consumption, defined as more than 28 cups of coffee per week, is associated with an increased risk of all-cause mortality among men.

For men and women 55 years of age and younger, the association between heavy coffee consumption and all-cause mortality is more pronounced

In a multivariate analysis, men who drank more than 28 cups of coffee had a statistically significant 21% increased risk of all-cause mortality. In women, the risk was not statistically significant. In men younger than 55 years of age, drinking more than 28 cups per week was associated with a 56% increased risk of death compared with nondrinkers. In younger women, such heavy consumption increased the risk of death 113% compared with those who did not drink coffee.
