Worried about your coffee habit?

Been hearing some crazy news about caffeine lately? So have we! That's why we were keen to check out this infographic by Andy Brunning, a chemistry teacher in the UK. It shows just how much coffee, water, and alcohol would be 'potentially toxic' at high doses – and it's pretty surprising! It really puts caffeine concerns into perspective to see that, in high quantities, water could do us in before caffeine!


Most studies have found that moderate caffeine consumption does not significantly increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, or many women’s health issues. So go ahead, enjoy that morning cup of joe! Just maybe not 118 of them…


Infographic is by Compound Interest and can be found (with a facinating blog post!) here.
