Four cups of coffee a day is okay, according to some scientists from the International Life Sciences Institute. They made this conclusion after reviewing 740 studies on the effects of caffeine on humans.
The studies took place between the year 2001 and 2015. However, they say that if you're a coffee lover, it's best not to go over four cups.

The study also showed that if you're pregnant, three cups a day is just fine. High caffeine intake can cause an underweight baby or other birth defects.

The study was published in the Food and Chemical Toxicology, but the American Coffee Association and the National Coffee Association did donate to the research.
Researchers also said it's important to be aware of your overall caffeine intake and make sure it doesn't go over 400 mg. Many foods such as chocolate have caffeine too.
