Coffee HallucinationDrinking too much coffee could make people hear voices or sense things that aren’t there, the BBC reports. The research doesn’t prove a “causal link” between coffee and hearing voices, but the study found that people who drink more than seven cups of instant coffee per day were three times more likely to experience hallucinations.
