    Health and Coffee

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I was making a call of nature today (dont worry, thats all the detail I will be supplying along that line) and attached to the door was some health info "Can I get addicted to caffeine" as attached below.

    It makes caffeine sound pretty heavy duty but I thought it a bit spurious, especially the last claim "The chronic user can then lose the ability to experience pleasure from the normal life experiences creating the dependency on caffeine". I guess the location where I discovered the article is approriate.

    It is produced by a company called Health By Design and cites several sources as references.

    By inference, stopping caffeine intake will lead to the brain producing more dopamine in order to, once again, "maintain some kind of chemical balance".

    It seems to me that is an argument for keeping your caffeine levels constant, not for avoiding coffee.

    This website has lots of info re: coffee and health:
