(WHAS 11)--A new study now links how much you drink with early death.

While the average coffee drinker in America has around three cups a day the study says if you drink more than four you might want to cut back.

For men under 55 more than four cups a day meant a 56 percent increased risk of an early death.

For women it's 113 percent

There is some good news, for people over 55 the amount of coffee you drink has no effect on the length of your life.
