Could that six cup a day habit be blamed on your genes?
Well, apparently researchers in America scanned the genes of over 40,000 people, and found two particular stretches of DNA in people who consumed more caffeine than others. But when you read the all important small print, the difference was only 40mg caffeine a day which is about a third of a cup of coffee or a can of cola. And, just because you drink a bit more caffeine, it doesn’t mean that you are genetically programmed to become addicted to it.
Phew, thank goodness for that.
