business news in context, analysis with attitude reports on a new study from the Mayo Clinic revealing that "drinking more than 28 cups a week can harm your health considerably, with those consuming more than four cups a day twice as likely to die than those who are non-drinkers ... The study specifically found that men aged 55 years or younger who consumed more than 28 cups of coffee a week were 56 percent more likely to have died from any cause than those who were non-drinkers, and younger women doubled their risk of mortality with consumption."

However, the story says, "the study did not find any significant link between coffee consumption and heart disease deaths and there were no increased mortality risks associated with less than three cups a day."
KC's View:

The good news ... and I wouldn't usually describe this as good news ... is that I'm 58 years old, and therefore outside the demographic group describe din the study.

The bad news is that I easily drink more than four cups of coffee a day, usually before 9 am.

The worse news is that I've been doing this for more than a decade.

I think I'm going to be selective about this, and choose to believe the studies that suggest that coffee consumption can actually prevent stroke, heart disease and diabetes. Because it would appear I have a choice, and I might as well go with the study that suits my lifestyle.
