Book Review
Get ready to give up that morning latte and kiss cola goodbye. Here comes Caffeine Blues, by Stephen Cherniske, M.S., the first book to expose the dark side of America's No. 1 drug: caffeine. If you are one of the nearly 80 percent of Americans hooked on caffeine--a natural component of coffee, tea, and chocolate and a common ingredient in drugs, soda, candy, and other products--this book will be a wake-up call.

In Caffeine Blues, Cherniske, a nutritional biochemist with more than 25 years of academic research and clinical experience and author of the bestseller The DHEA Breakthrough, reveals the truth about caffeine and explains how to kick the habit forever. Cherniske discusses how caffeine affects the body and brain and why it can increase your risk of dozens of health disorders ranging from osteoporosis,...

Caffeine

Paperback

From School Library Journal
Grade 6 Up?A concise, readable overview that covers caffeine's history, physical effects, and addiction. Each chapter ends with discussion questions. Unlike Robert Perry's Focus on Nicotine and Caffeine (21st Century, 1991), which is for a younger audience, DeBenedette does not try to convince readers that caffeine is all bad (she even gives directions on how to brew a good cup of coffee or tea.) She does, however, make clear the pluses and minuses and where hidden caffeine can be found. The illustrations include tables that show the amount of caffeine in coffee, tea, medicines, and colas, as well as a few mundane black-and-white photographs. Richard Gilbert's Caffeine (Chelsea, 1992) is written on a slightly higher reading level and is more comprehensive.?Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library,...

Buzz: The Science and Lore of Alcohol and Caffeine

·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Whether they prefer scotch on the rocks or a double mocha latte, readers will enjoy Braun's dissection of caffeine, alcohol and the processes by which they work. For one thing, the presentation of complicated scientific concepts is understandable without being condescending. Braun makes analogies ("Drinking caffeine is thus like putting a block of wood under one of the brain's primary brake pedals") that help the reader to visualize what's going on. The book is also helped by the author's inclusion of stories and humorous moments. From David Letterman quotes ("If it weren't for the caffeine, I'd have no identifiable personality whatsoever") to personal anecdotes about the effects these two mood-altering substances had upon the formulation of his book, Braun manages to take abstract concepts and mold them into...

Nicotine, Caffeine and Social Drinking: Behaviour and Brain Function
Jan Snel (Editor)
9057022184
December 1997
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Often, people use nicotine, caffeine, and some level of alcohol in varying combinations at different times of the day in order to optimize their functioning and feelings of well-being, whether at work, in leisure time, or in a social context. However, until now, studies on the effects of this everyday practice have been diverse, widespread, and insufficiently summarized. Recently developed methods to study the effects in more detail have received little attention, especially among a nonscientific readership.
Nicotine, Caffeine and Social Drinking focuses readers' attention on the effects of normal, socially accepted psychoactive substances on cognitive performance and on the brain. Divided into three sections, this book studies each substance individually before examining the effects of their combined...

Book Description
Caffeine is the most popular psychoactive substance in the world and one of the widest-traded commodities in the forms of coffee, tea, and soft drinks. But, is consumption of caffeine safe in terms of physical and mental health? Aimed at addressing this question, author Jack E.

The book concludes with an examination of the issue of whether or not caffeine is a drug of abuse and whether or not there is a safe level of caffeine...
