Folks who chug lots of coffee may have their genetics to thank for their java cravings, a new study says.
Researchers have linked six genes to a person's coffee consumption. All of the genes are related to the body's response to caffeine, according to the study.
"These are genes that we previously would not have implicated with coffee, and they show that there is some genetic basis for our coffee consumption behavior," said lead author Marilyn Cornelis, a research associate in nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health.
These genes could help explain why some people enjoy coffee more than others. "My response to a cup of coffee might be very different to someone else's response to the same cup," Cornelis said.
They also could explain the popularity of energy drinks and other products that contain caffeine, said Rachel Poole, a postdoctoral fellow at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, a nonprofit scientific institute dedicated to research on the senses of taste and smell.
"In the past coffee and tea were the primary sources of caffeine worldwide. Now, there are many more products that contain caffeine -- energy drinks, flavored waters, gums," Poole said.
