    It leads to a condition called hyponatremia, where sodium in the body becomes diluted and the cells swell.

    Will all that caffeine in the coffee kill you? Probably not any faster than all that water. You’ll be bouncing off the walls though, and you’ll be a great nuisance to the people around you. Don’t stray far from a bathroom.

    Ever Wanted To Know How Much Caffeine Could Kill You?
    Caffeine overdose is a real thing and it’s extremely dangerous, especially with temptation legally hiding anywhere from the coffee shop on the corner to the cans of energy drinks in the vending machines at the gym, grocery store, and even some public schools for kids. Caffeine can kill, and it’s exactly why a calculator has been designed by Caffeine Informer to inform consumers when it’s time to cut off.

  13. From Caffeine
    Extreme overdose can result in death. The median lethal dose (LD50) given orally is 192 milligrams per kilogram in rats. The LD50 of caffeine in humans is dependent on individual sensitivity, but is estimated to be about 150 to 200 milligrams per kilogram of body mass or roughly 80 to 100 cups of coffee for an average adult. Though achieving lethal dose of caffeine would be difficult with regular coffee, it is easier to reach high doses with caffeine pills, and the lethal dose can be lower in individuals whose ability to metabolize caffeine is impaired.
    So while in theory possible not very likely.

  14. I assume you mean by caffeine overdose. Over-hydration and exploding your stomach can happen from consuming too large a volume of anything. As far as caffeine overdose, I doubt coffee has enough in it to die from drinking it in one sitting unless you had a preexisting condition.
    In the long term, I’m sure many people have died as an indirect result of drinking too much coffee. Large amounts of caffeine can do all sorts of crazy things to your body. In the worst case, it will lead to high blood pressure which will result in heart attacks and strokes. If you stop drinking coffee after long term over-consumption, the withdrawal effects won’t kill you, but you may wish it did.

  15. The lethal dose of substances is often given in “LD50”. This states the dosage after which 50% of the population dies. For caffeine this is estimated to be 150 – 200mg per kilogram of body-weight.
    For an average human being of 70 kilograms this will result in 10,5 – 14 grams or 75 – 100 cups of coffee.
    So… you tell me: is this possible?

  16. Caffeine has a toxic effect at certain levels. You can build up a tolerance. At one point I was drinking 30–40 coffee a day, bur built up to this after quite a while.
    My MD told met that had I not built up a tolerance, the level would have been lethal. I cut back.
