- Coffee is one of the most widely-consumed beverages on the planet, and it's been proven to have some serious health benefits, but you can still overdo it.
- Drinking "too much" coffee ultimately comes down to caffeine intake, and researchers have come up with what they believe is the limit.
- No, you don't have to hold yourself to just one cup per day, and the amount that is considered "safe" is actually pretty high.
To say that coffee is popular would be a massive understatement. In fact, it's the second most popular beverage on the planet, trailing behind tea (and, if we were to count it separately, water) at the very top of the list. Oftentimes, when something is very popular, researchers studying it end up discovering a lot of bad things about it. It's a bummer, but that's just how things go. Not so with coffee.
Coffee has a whole host of incredible health benefits, from reducing the risk of Alzheimer's to lowering the chances of developing diabetes and even helping to reduce the risk of stroke. That being said, it's still possible to drink too much coffee, and based on decades of scientific research, there's a pretty clear number of cups you should shoot for if you want the health benefits without the drawbacks.
