Nasty Things Drinking Too Much Coffee Does To You

It's not just that you need that caffeine, it's that it's a part of the job's culture. When you start out as a young analyst, the boring hours between spreadsheets and pitch books are spent going on Starbucks runs.


Our love of coffee noted, it's very possible to drink too much coffee, and that can be harmful to your body. Research shows that ingesting too much caffeine (500-600 milligrams or 5 or more cups of coffee) can cause anything from restlessness to muscle tremors.

So keep all this in mind when you order your next double shot of espresso.

A University of Melbourne study called caffeine "the most commonly used psychoactive drug," and said drinking more than 5 cups a day can have you hearing things.

From A 2011 story published in The Daily Mail:

Professor Simon Crowe, of La Trobe University in Melbourne, said: "We also told them that within the white noise there may be parts of the song White Christmas and if you hear it, press a button. We didn’t include White Christmas in the white noise but found that more people who were very stressed and had high levels of caffeine thought they heard the song. The combination of caffeine and stress affect the likelihood of an individual experiencing a psychosis-like symptom."

 

High levels of caffeine can damage your liver, especially if you take pain medication regularly as well.

It can raise your blood pressure.

That's according to a 2012 Carnegie Mellon study which also says that coffee can stimulate the heart and cause shallow breathing.

It can make you irrational and irritable by stymieing oxygen's flow to the brain.

It can cause insomnia.

This varies from person to person, depending on how well your body can process caffeine. Caffeine has a six-hour half life so it takes 24 hours for all of it to work its way through your system (on average).

It's addictive and can cause withdrawal, according to John's Hopkins.

From Forbes:

In essence, coming off caffeine reduces your cognitive performance and has a negative impact on your mood. The only way to get back to normal is to drink caffeine, and when you do drink it, you feel like it’s taking you to new heights.

Withdrawal when coming off caffeine can give you a headache.

Withdrawal hits about 12-24 hours after your last cup, according to the American Heart Association. Not only are you tired and have lowered performance, but you can get a headache as well.

Withdrawal can also make you depressed. And you can add anxiety, fatigue, and drowsiness to those symptoms.

It can make hard workers slack off says one University of British Columbia study.

The University of British Columbia did a study in which it gave 40 rats amphetamines and caffeine. The amphetamines made lazy rats work harder and hard working rats more lazy.

The coffee, on the other hand, did nothing for the slackers. It didn't do anything for the workers either. 

It can increase your risk for osteoporosis, so make sure you're getting enough calcium and vitamin D.

From the Oregon State University:

Ensuring adequate calcium and vitamin D intake and limiting coffee consumption to 3 cups/d (300 mg/d of caffeine) may help reduce the risk of osteoporosis and osteoporotic fracture, particularly in older adults.

BONUS: Drinking caffeine can lead to a leakier bladder according to the University of Alabama

In both men and women, according to studies.
