Caffeine effects

Caffeine is in our news again because our footballers are taking caffeine tablets and even though it’s acceptable, it’s highly undesirable. We live in extremes and have forgotten the art of food appreciation and moderation. This site outlines , yet again, the bad impact of caffeine on our systems, particularly our heart.We keep making caffeine tablets and high dose caffeine drinks available and we keep pretending it is not really a problem. You don’t have to read much of a site like this to know it is a problem and we are just side stepping it. You only have to know someone with a heart condition who then drinks brewed coffee to know that caffeine has quite an impact on your heart. It is serious that we are taking this much caffeine and the pressure on sports people to perform and come up with the goods is driving us down the wrong road. We know it’s because there are huge sums of money attached to careers and teams. No amount of money will  help if you put your health and life in danger:
Severe negative effects of caffeine include:

  • Panic attacks
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Continuous stomach problems
  • Prolonged depression
  • Sleep disorders
WiseGeek, not only gives you the above information, it goes into considerable detail so that you understand the impact of caffeine on your system. There is nothing wrong with a cup of coffee, but if you take too much caffeine or you are sensitive to it, then there really is a problem.
