I wonder, how much is considered to be "high" consumption...

^^  Me too.

 

I don't drink soda at all, and I only drink about 1/2 a cup of coffee each day.  Sometimes a whole cup, but that's unusual.  I would assume I'm on the safe side, but I'm curious.

That's what frustrates me about so many of these studies - they often only study the effects of pretty extreme cases. I understand why; it makes for easier science. But a lot of the time it seems like the amounts of caffine/alcohol/wheat/sugar/whatever-evil-food-of-the-hour would be unhealthy for anyone, so it's hardly surprising it isn't good for pregnant/nursing/ttc moms.
