CAFFEINE

Caffeine has no nutritional value and therefore coffee, tea or cola beverages cannot replace nutritional food or drinks.

Although caffeine does not cause stomach ulcers it can aggravate existing ulcers, since more gastric juices are secreted after the ingestion of caffeine.

Pregnant women metabolize caffeine slower than other adults. The caffeine enters the bloodstream of the unborn baby, quickening its heartbeat and possibly also impairing its development.

Caffeine causes high blood pressure and irregular heartbeat in sensitive individuals. It is important therefore that people suffering from heart conditions discuss their caffeine intake with their doctors.

There is also a possible link in some cases between the excessive intake of caffeine and cancer of the ovaries, bladder, large intestine and pancreas.
