Effects Of Caffeine On The Adolescent Brain
Today is the last part of part four in my series on how caffeine can be detrimental to our overall health.

It's not like our bodies are hard wired to need caffeine to function but perhaps the caffeine does a great job of covering up our current state of health.

Today I'm going to be starting a four part series on what caffeine does to your brain and make that a case for why we might not want to be consuming it.
In many cultures around the world, coffee is consumed daily and for many people it's really their first thought and what gets them out of bed in the morning. For others, it's an excuse to get together with friends or family and socialize. What we often fail to realize is that coffee or more specifically caffeine is a drug. In reality, it's a highly addictive stimulant, which is in the same category of cocaine and methamphetamine and like those drugs, if abused, can have some serious consequences.
