Statistics show that heavy tea and coffee drinkers are more susceptible to all types of disease. Caffeine causes your stomach to produce more acid, often creating a heart burn. In fact, the Mayo Clinic refuses to treat anu ulcer patient who is unwilling to quit drinking tea or coffee. Caffeine also produces a stress effect, which can elevate blood pressure in coffee drinkers. High blood pressure is one of the main risk factors in heart attacks.
