Coffee increases hallucinations

14th January 2009

Research carried out by a team from Durham University has suggested that people who drink too much coffee could start seeing ghosts or hearing strange voices.

They found that anyone who drank more than seven cups of instant coffee a day were three times more likely to hallucinate than those who took just one. Some 200 students were questioned about their caffeine intake for the study, which was reported in the journal Personality and Individual Differences and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and Medical Research Council.
