Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Coffee is commonly consumed among young people in China. However, consumers are rarely aware of physically adverse effects as a result of excessive consumption of caffeine.

DATA SOURCES:

A literature search using multiple databases was performed for articles published with concentration on meta-analyses, systematic reviews, and randomized controlled trials.

RESULTS:

Excess coffee consumption is also a risk of primary cardiac arrest especially in young people. Treatment modalities include activated charcoals, beta-blockers, vasopressin and hemodialysis when necessary.

CONCLUSION:

Coffee consumers should be advised not to routinely take more than moderate coffee.
