excess coffee; sugar and pufa

I would like explain the following:

1) Peat recommends drinking coffee and he drinks a lot (in an interview he mentions 5 cups). Usually, one avoids this amount because it causes jitteriness and nervosity. Is Peat implying that those issues won't arise if enough milk or sucrose accompanies the coffee?

2) Studies seem to show sugar is bad, which is why it is hard to convince anyone that Peat is right. In these studies, are the effect of sugar negative due to presence of pufa? This would explain the contradiction.

Not only the presence of PUFA when the study is taken is bad, the long-term consumption of PUFAs makes the body unable to process sugar or convert cholesterol to other hormones due to damaged thyroid function.

I also wonder if a better thyroid function also makes it easier to not have bad effects from coffee.
