Coffee Health Update

Well, I should have known after all of the conflicting articles about coffee's health effects not to get too excited. When the article that said coffee drinkers who drink a cup or more a day had a 50% less chance than on-drinkers of developing oral cancer, I thought great! The data was collected after studying 38,000 people in Japan.

Now on a much smaller scale, a study found that people who consumed high levels of caffeine, 330 mg, or about the amount in 7 cups of regular coffee, are three times more likely to have hallucinations or hear voices. The effect is thought to be because of the release of cortisol in the bloodstream which is believed to be tied to delusions.

Maybe I rinse and spit my espresso like I was cupping it all day?
