Caffeine: Did you know it has a twitter handle?

Ok – (@Caffeine) is actually a Social Broadcasting and Entertainment Company, not the jolty one we’re all thinking of, but it caught your attention right?

It’s estimated that 90% of Americans consume caffeine on a daily basis. Coffee, soda, tea and energy drinks are the most common ways to start your daily caffeine fix. We head out the door to work or school and grab our caffeine in a cup.


What are the pros and cons of caffeine?

Caffeine is in medicines from aspirin to pain killers and acts as a stimulant. Considered by some as the “only legal psychoactive drug in the country,” 30 mg of caffeine (or 1/2 a cup of coffee) is enough to make you feel more alert!

The average adult consumes about 280 mg of caffeine a day, which is equal to 4 cups of coffee. Someone that consumes just 100 mg/day can easily become addicted.

So what are the cons of caffeine?

Caffeine is not recommended for pregnant women or kids, and it can also greatly increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The addictive stimulant can increase cravings causing you to eat more sugary treats which can cause weight gain.
