But evidence also suggests caffeine could cause high blood pressure or heart attacks in those who find it tough to metabolize.
"Participants drinking four or more cups per day, compared with those drinking less coffee and nondrinkers, were more likely to drink instant coffee and be current smokers, whereas participants drinking one to three cups per day were older, more likely to have a university degree, and more likely to report "excellent" health".
