Caffeine, a popularly consumed central nervous system stimulant is consumed on a day to day basis around the globe. Caffeine can be ingested into the body by either eating it or drinking it. Caffeine comes in forms of many processed foods such as coffee, chocolate bars, candy, sodas, and energy drinks as well as tea. For example millions of people all around the world consume coffee on a daily basis. Due to the large consumption of caffeine, both the negative and positive side effects of consuming it have been well researched and documented. However the long term effects are much more significant, the short term side effects of caffeine may not appear to be as extreme. The regulation of caffeine consumption is crucial in order to guarantee that one does not become dependent on it, and to ensure that an individual’s body will not be damaged by doing so. The evidence that backed up the claim that coffee is best consumed in small amounts and not on a daily basis is overwhelming and clearly shows that coffee consumption must be carefully regulated and controlled.

All of my life I have heard reasons for and against coffee drinking, and being raised a Mormon I was always taught that it was bad. Upon doing research for this paper, I have come to find that it is quite the opposite. Granted, there will always be adverse affects for varying people who drink it, but the health benefits far out weigh the negative association these beans have been ground up to be. First, I will start with the negative side affects since they are minimal. Drinking coffee can cause irritability, nervousness, hand trembling, rapid heartbeat, high cholesterol, and possibly anxiety or panic attacks. Not to mention diarrhea, muscle tremors, and insomnia (which can be avoided if you stop drinking it before a certain time during the day; so your not up all night!).

Caffeine has become a staple in many developed nations. As a stimulant, caffeine provides a viable solution to many individuals maintaining a busy lifestyle. Particularly in the developed world, individuals tend to work long hours, which creates vast amounts of stress. To help alleviate much of the fatigue that accompanies a busy lifestyle, many individuals elect to drink caffeinated beverages. These beverages range from typical colas to coffee, to energy drinks.

However, most of the data on coffee’s health effects are based on observational data, with very few randomized, controlled studies, and association does not prove causation. Additionally, the possible advantages of regular coffee consumption have to be weighed against potential risks (which are mostly related to its high caffeine content) including anxiety, insomnia, tremulousness, and palpitations, as well as bone loss and possibly increased risk of fractures. (p.1043-1051)”
Caffeine can also improve one’s health by preventing certain diseases. A Harvard T.H.

The researchers noted that the memory skills and reaction times of the caffeinated volunteers were also improved when compared to the control group who received a placebo and showed no increase in brain activity (Nikki).” How does caffeine produce a short term memory boost though?
