Can coffee lead to heart attacks in teenagers?ANSWER:
Let me preface this answer by saying I am not a doctor, nor a medical practitioner in any sense.
But based on my reading I have found no connection between coffee drinking and heart attacks.
Teenager can do some pretty crazy things, but I don't think that drinking tons of coffee is going to put them at risk of having a heart attack.
That said, I think anyone of any age who has an existing heart condition or weakness can be vulnerable to the stimulating properties of caffeine.
For most of us, drinking five or six cups of coffee a day isn't going to put anyone at risk. On the contrary, coffee has been shown to protect against heart disease.
