So today’s research subject is caffeine, for an article on same.
I’m getting the impression this isn’t a substance we fully understand. Certainly estimates of safe quantities are all over the map–from 1 to 6 cups of coffee, from what I’m seeing, or 150-600 mg of caffeine. The consensus seems to be that caffeine isn’t harmful, except when it is. And that sometimes it might be helpful, except when it isn’t.
How do you all consume caffeine?
Feel free to use the comments section to say more about caffeine, and your experiences with/feelings about same, and also if the text entry boxes above aren’t large enough, or if you’re coming from outside lj and can’t otherwise answer the questions. (Though try clicking on OpenID and entering a URL first–that might let you take the poll, I’m not sure.) Thanks!
