This book exposes caffeine’s darker side that scientists know, but the coffee, tea, pharmaceutical, and energy drink industries have tried to suppress. Caffeine is a highly addictive stimulant with serious side effects and is toxic in large doses. Most caffeine consumers are not aware that they are addicted. But without their daily caffeine intake, they will experience a wide variety of withdrawal symptoms such as severe headaches, anxiety, muscle tension, irritability, depression, lightheadedness, sluggishness, nervousness, and a burning desire for caffeine, which can relieve their painful discomfort instantly. However, caffeine dependence has serious and dangerous consequences. The Truth About Caffeine explores short- and long-term health issues associated with caffeine consumption. Studies have linked caffeine to heart disease, fibrocystic breast disease, breast cancer, gastrointestinal problems, and central nervous system disorders. The book uncovers health issues associated with caffeine use, its role in adrenal depletion, and negative effects on pH balance. Discover how eliminating caffeine from your diet can not only improve your life, but quite possibly save it.
