02 May Is there really such a thing as too much coffee?
Somewhere between 80 and 85 percent of Americans consume coffee regularly.
This is according to the American Psychological Association.
A portion of those coffee drinkers are the sometimes proud junkies who drag the nation’s average up to 165 milligrams (about two cups) of caffeine per day. An FDA estimate puts the average closer to 300 milligrams. Either way, for the average to be there, there’s a segment of the populations drinking much more.
For those jittery coffee hounds, a new study published in Food and Chemical Toxicology has good news. It suggests you can surpass the average and hit 400 milligrams of caffeine without worry.
