Enough Caffeine to Kill You
With all this hype about energy drinks, supplements and designer coffee, have you ever wondered how much caffeine your body can handle?
So, as an avid coffee drinker and StumbleUpon addict. I always find myself looking for new updates and news on coffee. Yes, it’s strange, but I’m a woman that loves a good cup of Joe. I would also like to add that there comes a point when you can finally consider yourself an avid coffee drinker. I love my coffee so strong that my roommates can’t even share the same brew. It might explain why I’m a ball of energy at times, but don’t you dare talk to me until I have had my first cup in the morning. I need to drink the demons out of me, seriously.
The reason I am writing about this topic is because it has occurred to me; how much is too much? The thoughts of how much caffeine my body can actually handle has passed through my head.This would be after: I can’t sit still in a chair, I feel like I’m having issues breathing, or feeling a bit dizzy, my heart pounding out of my chest, and feeling like the insides of my body are baking.
The term I like to use is, “I feel like I’m going to freakin’ die.”
I’m sure there are several people out there that can agree with me. Generally speaking, we know were not going to die, but have you ever wondered how much it would take to kill you? This could even count for energy drinks and energy shots and even chocolate. Well, I came across a website that actually calculates it. It’s called EngeryFiend. I was actually surprised by the data. Everyone should check it out. Surprisingly, 4Loko and the other alcoholic energy drinks are not listed. All you have to do is insert your weight into the site and pick your death juice of choice from the list. The sites a bit morbid since the button that you click is labeled ‘Kill Me.’ Wow, that’s totally reassuring. I almost feel like the grim reaper is going to come strolling into my house. Awkward.
