Selling coffee to caffeine-craving Scandinavians is good business. Researchers say that Scandinavians lead the world when it comes to drinking coffee, consuming twice as much as people in other European countries. Ah, the ecstasy and the agony.

Coffee, tea,...

According to forskning.no, results of a recent study based on the coffee drinking habits of 50,000 individuals from the county of north Trøndelag have shown that people who consume 540 milligrams of caffeine daily – that is to say either 6 cups of coffee or 12 cups of tea – are more likely to get sporadic headaches.

At the same time, the investigation – published in the “Journal of Headache and Pain” – reveals that heavy coffee drinkers are less prone to suffer from chronic ones – headaches that occur on more than 14 days every month.

Or on the wagon?

There is always a price to pay for overindulgence, though.

“A regular intake of caffeine over time creates the possibility of suffering from withdrawal,” Professor Knut Hagen attached to the Institute of Neural Medicine at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) tells the site.

The study has also shown that this is more prominent at the weekends, because coffee is drunk at different times than during the week. To help avoid this, the Professor has some advice.

“For some, the solution could be to get up at the same time that they normally do and drink the same amount of coffee.”

The average Norwegian consumes 425 mg of caffeine per day.
