The chances of requirement to undergo antihypertensive medication was greater among coffee consumers in comparison to non-coffee drinkers, with the greatest high risk by about 29%, being linked with consumption of 2-3 cups of coffee regularly. The consumption of even more than 8 cups in one single day alone raises this risk by nearly 14%.
