(KTVI) - Do you drink coffee? The National Coffee Association says 83 percent of American adults drink coffee everyday. That's five percent more than last year.

A new study says too much of it could kill you.  Dr. Michael Lim, cardiologist with Saint Louis University Hospital, talks about the new study.

Some stats from the study:

-Women from ages 20 to 54 who drank more than 28 cups of coffee a week (about 4 cups per day)...more likely to die

-Men in the same age bracket were less at risk than women, but still had a 1.5 times higher risk of death than moderate drinkers.
