It is easy to get, socially satisfactory, willingly affordable, and entirely legal.  In health perspective its effects are both for good and ill. Obviously, caffeine is addictive.
According to new-fanged research, genetic factors shows that why some people devour bulky amount of caffeine. According to US researchers they scanned genetic variations in over 40,000 individuals to search for links with high caffeine intake. They found two stretches of DNA associated with high consumption of tea, coffee, chocolate, soft drinks and other sources of caffeine. The study is available in the journal PLoS Genetics.
Author of the study, Dr Neil Caporaso of the National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, Maryland, US, said people with the high consumption genetic variation consume more caffeine about 40mg or a third of a cup of coffee or a can of cola  than other individuals. There are hundreds of genes known for specific medical conditions for dietary consumption we know very little. Now, for the first time, we know specific genes that influence the amount of caffeine that individuals consume.”

He said: “The two stretches of DNA linked with high caffeine consumption contain two genes thought highly likely to be involved in the way the body processes caffeine.
One – CYP1A2 – has previously been shown to be involved in the body’s break down of caffeine. The second – AHR – helps regulate the first gene.”

Study author, Dr Marilyn Cornelis of the Harvard School of Public Health, said: “There has always been some anecdotal evidence that everyone responds differently to caffeine, but most research has focused on environmental factors.For caffeine at last we have been able to find some genetic factors.”
