There is some evidence to suggest that caffeine, at least with coffee as the vehicle, can be helpful in preventing neurodegenerative disease and some cardiovascular issues. Some doctors will recommend it for the prevention of heart failure and others will shun it.
Yes, caffeine is indeed a controversial subject — part of the reason why I'm writing a book on it... And I do discuss this point in the book as well.I think part of the problem is there's a lot of pseudoscience surrounding the subject so whether or not there are clear pros and cons is all murky waters.
Anyway I was having a joke because when you're caffeine sensitive it's really not funny! Overdoing it can lead to a nasty experience and even a hospital visit.
Yes, it is a mild diuretic — and caffeine affects the entire body, in fact. Everyone responds a little differently to it, apparently.aet wrote: ↑Fri Nov 18, 2022 10:00 pmI've heard form one chemist - biologist that caffeine also irritates your kidney so you might not feel being boosted ( because tolerance or you just don't realize it anymore ) but you going to wc more than you would if drinking only water or other , non-caffeine , drink.
