How Much Coffee Is Too Much?

130 million people around the world drink coffee. 23 percent of those are Americans. The average amount consumed is 3.2 cups a day by coffee drinkers. Over 50 countries grow coffee to meet demand. It helps sustain many farmers and communities around the globe. Who knew drinking coffee helps make a difference internationally?

Coffee has lots of antioxidants. It also has lots of caffeine, so you don't want to go overboard. Caffeine makes many feel good literally and more alert, as it is a type of natural drug, but too many cups of coffee can cause the jitters, anxiety or nervousness. It can also make it hard to go to sleep at night for some.

The moral is modesty in all things seems to be the general consensus. Enjoy a cup or two, but six cups is probably going overboard!
