ABC News Video – Effects of Caffeine on the Brain

The Effects of Caffeine on the Brain – Bloodflow drops 40% to brain.  Ever had a caffeine headache, this video explains why.

The conclusions of the experts in this video seem to disagree with the effects on the brain.

“Coffee is a hurtful indulgence. It temporarily excites the mind, … but the aftereffect is exhaustion, prostration, paralysis of the mental, moral, and physical powers. The mind becomes enervated, and unless through determined effort the habit is overcome, the activity of the brain is permanently lessened.”—Christian Temperance and Bible Hygiene, 34, 1890.

All these nerve irritants are wearing away the life-forces, and the restlessness caused by shattered nerves, the impatience, the mental feebleness, become a warring element, antagonizing to spiritual progress. Then should not those who advocate temperance and reform be awake to counteract the evils of these injurious drinks? In some cases it is as difficult to break up the tea-and-coffee habit as it is for the inebriate to discontinue the use of liquor. The money expended for tea and coffee is worse than wasted. They do the user only harm, and that continually. Those who use tea, coffee, opium, and alcohol, may sometimes live to old age, but this fact is no argument in favor of the use of these stimulants. What these persons might have accomplished, but failed to do because of their intemperate habits, the great day of God alone will reveal. { CTBH 34.5 }
