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.
Caffeine is actually the most commonly used psychoactive drug in the world. The majority of people who drink coffee are addicted, and if for some reason coffee is not available, withdrawal symptoms actually occur like foggy head, headache. And those don't seem to go away until you've had your fix. So if you've ever wondered what exactly caffeine is doing to your brain, then look no further than to those things.
