This is how many cups of coffee you should be drinking

So the people who drink a lot of coffee are probably immune to it'.

The findings, likely, won't have much of an impact on most of us in the USA - the average American drinks 1.6 cups a day (compared to eight in Finland, the coffee capital of the world, according to the International Coffee Organization).

Examining the relationship of long haul coffee utilization and cardiovascular disease, UniSA specialists Dr Ang Zhou and Professor Elina Hyppönen of the Australian Center for Precision Health state their research confirms the point at which excess caffeine can cause high blood pressure, a precursor to heart disease.

A previous study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, found that besides making us feel a little wired, drinking three cups of coffee a day could add years to our lives.

According to the study of the UK Biobank data, the study explored the ability of the caffeine metabolizing gene with the number of 347,077 participants with the ages between 31 years and 73 years, to identify the risk of cardiovascular diseases coupled with the consumption of coffee and genetic variations.

According to the World Health Organization, heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide-and yet one of the most preventable.

Moderate coffee consumption of two to four cups a day was associated with reduced mortality.

While these studies showed positive health outcomes, some research has found coffee consumption to be linked to imbalanced blood sugar levels and weight gain. Their study was titled, "Tea, coffee, caffeine intake and the risk of cardio-metabolic outcomes: findings from a population with low coffee and high tea consumption".

She then suggested that people can maintain a healthy heart and a healthy blood pressure if they limit their coffee to fewer than six cups a day. "Knowing the limits of what's good for you and what's not is imperative", Hyppönen said in the press release.

"As with many things, it's all about moderation; overindulge and your health will pay for it". They also found that their conclusions were independent of genetics-meaning those who are highly sensitive to the effects of caffeine were just as likely to develop heart disease over the six-cup limit as those who can drink a triple espresso without getting jittery.

After adjusting for lifestyle factors, such as smoking and diet, the scientists found that those who drank the most coffee had a lower risk of death in comparison to those who spent their lives coffee free.
