Caffeine is the only FDA-approved nonprescription or over-the-counter (OTC) stimulant medication for occasional use. Over 80% of the US adult population consumes caffeine daily, thus making it one of the most popular drugs. Annual consumption is estimated to be well over 100,000 tons. Caffeine is a common ingredient in coffee, tea, soft drinks, and chocolate products. It is also present in many prescription as well as OTC medications, including headache and cold remedies; menstrual pain relief medications, diet and weight reduction products, and stimulant formulations.
Unfortunately, misinformation regarding the drug has persisted since the beginning of its discovery. Everyone seems to be consumed by the fallacies about the stimulant. "When it comes to caffeine use as a food and beverage ingredient and as a flavoring agent, that ignorance is multiplied many times over" said a Coca-Cola Company official. This publication attempts to lay to rest much, if not all, of that misinformation with facts and evidence from well-conducted human and animal subjects trials.
The purpose of this pocket guide is to provide a summary of research information patterning to caffeine. Some of the information circulated over the years about the effects of caffeine lacks factual scientific basis. The text is divided into major headings of physiological and behavioral effects associated with caffeine consumption. The extensive information about caffeine is categorized and organized in tabular and concise form to facilitate reading and comprehension. It is a very quick and easy-to-use reference work.
This is the only book written for all segments of society (clinicians, researchers and consumers or laymen) unlike the only other two books on this subject, to our knowledge, which are too technical and written for researchers mainly.
