COFFEE AND CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE

After six cups of coffee, the scientists found, caffeine consumption began to increase the risk of high blood pressure, which can lead to heart disease. In fact, drinking over six cups of coffee a day could increase the risk of cardiovascular disease by up to 22 percent, they found.
In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the researchers used data on 347,077 people between the ages of 37 and 73, taken from the UK Biobank. They also looked at the caffeine-metabolising gene CYP1A2, which enables carriers to process caffeine four times faster than non carriers, to determine whether those who possess the gene could drink more caffeine at a greater frequency without any adverse health impacts.
