  • All about caffeine

    I dont know what sort of reception this will get from the CS Sceptics Society but if it deserves to be challenged...

    Re: All about caffeine

    This is from the site:

    Research shows that most adults can consume up to 400 mg of caffeine per day, without negatively affecting their health in terms of toxicity (poisoning), cardiovascular health, bone and calcium status, behaviour, cancer, or male fertility.

    then this was for me:

    Your total caffeine intake was 572 mg.

    Your caffeine intake [i]is within the levels recommended [/i]by NSW Health for safe caffeine consumption.

    I think caffeine tolerance is an individual thing, I can usually tell when I am having too much coffee. Other than not being able to sleep!!

          Re: All about caffeine

          Mine came up 768 mg.

          Im a big guy so I suppose like alcohol, weight should play a factor in results.
          In this case it doesnt; no matter what weight I told the calculator it still said my intake was above recommended levels.

          On a side note, why ask for Name and Weight (if they dont affect the result)?

          P.S. I didnt try changing my name to affect the result.

            Woo-hoo! Im 756mg...Im on fire!  

            Coffee has absolutely no obviously outward affect on me unless I have one after 6.30pm, then I have trouble getting to sleep.

              Not referring to your post Flynn simply the fact that we are seeing another conflicting report on the affects of caffeine.
              Certainly didnt dismiss it as crap, did the test and it told me 3 cups of espresso a day put me over the limit.
              Did the test once, it told me I was over the limit at just over 400mg, did it a second time, same inputs and it came up with 606mg :-?

                    I thought the same so treated long black and espresso as the same, like all of these things poorly researched, in other words flawed, someone is probably proud as punch about having created it and being paid mega bucks for the effort. >

                      Re: All about caffeine

                      I got 1180mg

                      388mg from an espresso?

                      http://coffeetea.about.com/library/blcaffeine.htm
                      Lists a double espresso as 45-100mg.
                      Calculating from that I get 210-440mg for my daily intake.
                      Big difference.

                        Also if you ask for a long black at a shop with an espresso machine you generally get a cup a hot water with an espresso shot in it.
                        Therefore shouldnt an espresso (388mg) be the same as a long black (202mg)?

                          Gees you guys are cynics. : its only a guide but if you look underneath there are 8 (count em) reference citations. I still wouldnt take it as gospel, just like any online health advice.

                          Yes, you wouldnt have a 200ml espresso but you can calculate it pro rata e.g. of you drink two 25ml shots a day then enter .25 in the calculator.

                            When using pre-ground and you get distracted for a couple of seconds.

                              To question is healthy and intelligent, blind acceptance without question is dangerous.
