Coffee might be an essential part of your day, but you need to be careful and not over indulge.
Most coffee lovers estimate their daily intake, but now new research from the University of South Australia (UniSA) recommends you not have more than six cups of coffee a day.
According to sciencedaily.com this was much needed research down under because in Australia, one in six people are affected by cardiovascular disease.
It's also a major cause of death with one person dying from the disease every 12 minutes in that country.
Investigating the association of long-term coffee consumption and cardiovascular disease, UniSA researchers Dr Ang Zhou and Professor Elina Hyppönen of the Australian Centre for Precision Health say their research confirms the point at which excess caffeine can cause high blood pressure, a precursor to heart disease.
