Do You Know How Much Coffee It Would Take To Kill You?

4 Sep

Coffee is great for a lot of reasons. It wakes you up, it can prevent disease and it makes you happier. But you shouldn’t drink 7o cups of the stuff, according to a new ASAP Science video. That, they say, could kill a 154-pound person.

It’s hard to imagine anyone wanting to drink 70 cups of coffee, and actually, it may not be possible. As a previous ASAP Science video points out, it’s almost impossible to fit that much in your stomach — and you would start experiencing mania and hallucinations before getting those whopping 70 cups down

According to the video, 13 consecutive shots of alcohol can also be fatal, as can one or two ground cherry pits or 85 full-size bars of chocolate.  

When it comes down to it, you probably don’t have to worry too much about your coffee and chocolate habits. But there is too much of a good thing.
