Researchers Lost in Caffeine Fog?

is a dangerous drug, similar to cocaine and amphetamine. It causes
an increase in catecholamine production and prevents timely reuptake.
addition, chronic use of any drug including caffeine presents a
risk for consumers to develop an allergy, commonly called a sensitivity.
Allergic reactions to caffeine manifest as anaphylaxis, poison the
prefrontal cortex, and generate symptoms of ADD, anxiety, bipolar
disorder and schizophrenia. Alone, or in combination with ephedra
or another stimulant, including ritalin, caffeine can induce psychosis.
manufacturers cite caffeine as "toxic" when swallowed and "harmful"
when inhaled. Yet, with advances in technology and medicine, researchers
haven't correlated the increase of caffeine production and intake
with ADD, mental disorders, and suicide. Is this because they are
lost in a caffeine fog? Or is intellect a rarity in 2003?
