make a cause
Is the use of "make" in the sentence below fine?
Drinking too much coffee can ( make ) a cause of health problems.
I think nobody would disagree if it's "be" instead of "make", but it seems like "make" also can be possible.
Is "make" okay?
Re: make a cause
make; cause (something) to exist or come about
So in your sentence, it would be like saying, it can cause a cause of health problems.
It would be either:
can be a cause of...
can make for.. : "How better aesthetics in hospitals can make for happier and healthier patients."
