This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM:
A cup of joe per day might keep the doctor away, but half a dozen or more is pushing it. Even though there are tons of legitimate reasons to drink coffee for good health, a recent study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that drinking six or more cups a day increases a person’s risk for developing heart disease by as much as 22 percent.
In their research, the University of South Australia’s Ang Zhou and Elina Hyppönen looked for a link between heart disease and the caffeine-metabolizing gene CYP1A2. They did this by analyzing data on 347,077 coffee drinkers in the U.K. aged 37 through 73. Of the sample size, there were 8,368 documented incidents of heart disease.
While they didn’t find a link between the gene and heart disease, they did find that heavy coffee drinkers were at higher risk across the board; those who drank six cups of coffee or more per day were 22 percent more likely to develop the condition than people who drank just one or two.
