Warning against drinking 4 cups of coffee a day… a “disaster” awaits you


A new study concluded that drinking 4 cups of coffee a day can double the risk of developing “glaucoma” or blue water that affects the eyes.

This disease occurs as a result of abnormally high pressure in the eyes, and causes great damage to the optic nerve, and is usually considered the main cause of blindness in people over the age of 60 years.

This disease causes more than 10% of registered blindness cases in Britain, according to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”.

The main problem with this disease is that its symptoms do not appear clearly, so a person may not notice a change in vision until it has become an advanced stage.

The study, prepared by American researchers, says that the group most at risk of developing the disease as a result of drinking coffee is those who have a genetic predisposition towards intraocular pressure.

The researchers studied the cases of more than 120,000 patients at the famous Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, focusing on the nutritional, health and genetic data of these patients, and the ages of the patients ranged between 39-73 years.

The study concluded that those with a strong family history of glaucoma are at greater risk of infection, especially with coffee, calling on them to reduce the amount of coffee they drink, because it contains caffeine.

She explained that this group is at risk of contracting the disease by up to 75%.

“We previously published a study that reported that drinking large amounts of caffeine increases the risk of developing open-angle glaucoma for those with a family history of the disease,” said lead author Luis Pascual.

He added that the new study proved that the link between glaucoma and coffee drinking was clear among those who had a genetic risk for high intraocular pressure.

Specifically, those who consumed more than 480 milligrams of caffeine, or 4 cups of coffee, had more intraocular pressure than the others.

The study, published in the Journal of Ophthalmology, did not provide an explanation as to why caffeine was linked to this disease.
