Crush on caffeine

…Julie Deardorff, writing in the Chicago Tribune, says caffeinated doughnuts and sunflower seeds are coming soon.

…Even now, you can drink caffeine with alcohol…Are we up? Down? How about both?

…Rocket Chocolate contains the same caff as four cans of Coke—all in one little candy.

…If you prefer to get your highs knowledgeably at least, how do you do it? The FDA requires labeling of caffeine—but not the amount.

…Pregnant women, kids—how much are they downing?

…The other day, HA’s kid handed her a Pepsi Max. HA said, “Max what?” She looked on the bottle—caff was not listed.

..."Caffeine," enthused her unusually zippy kid.

…Some coffee yogurts have as much caff as a Coke. Others have zero.

…Caffeine is not totally harmless. It can cause the shakes and insomnia. In Canada, the govt says to limit daily intake to 3 8-oz cups of java or the equivalent.

…Guess HA should stop calling it the staff of life and fount of all goodness, huh?

...Huh? Huh? Answer! What do you think?

Tea, coffee, cola, energy drinks and chocolate share the same nerve toxin (stimulant), caffeine. Caffeine, which is readily released into the blood, triggers a powerful immune response that helps the body to counteract and eliminate this irritant. The toxic irritant stimulates the adrenal glands, and to some extent, the body’s many cells, to release the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol into the blood stream.

If consumption of stimulants continues on a regular basis, however, this natural defense response of the body becomes overused and ineffective. The almost constant secretion of stress hormones, which are highly toxic compounds in and of themselves, eventually alters the blood chemistry and causes damage to the immune system, endocrine, and nervous systems. Future defense responses are weakened, and the body becomes more prone to infections and other ailments.

The boost in energy experienced after drinking a cup of coffee is not a direct result of the caffeine it contains, but of the immune system’s attempt to get rid of it (caffeine) An overexcited and suppressed immune system fails to provide the “energizing” adrenaline and cortisol boost needed to free the body from the acidic nerve toxin, caffeine. At this stage, people say that they are “used” to a stimulant, such as coffee. So they tend to increase intake to feels the “benefits.”

Since the body cells have to sacrifice some of their own water for the removal of the nerve toxin caffeine, regular consumption of coffee, tea, or colas causes them to become dehydrated. For every cup of tea or coffee you drink, the body has to mobilize 2-3 cups of water just to remove the stimulants, a luxury it cannot afford. This applies to soft drinks, medicinal drugs, and any other stimulants, As a rule, all stimulants have a strong dehydrating effect on the bile, blood, and digestive juices.

I gather you think "the real scoop" is negative. All the more reason kids should not take a lot of this. I like my morning java, though.
