Did you know that a
lot of the world's drinks have caffeine in them? Lots
of people think caffeine isn't a drug but it really
is. Caffeine is one of the most popular drugs in the
world. We drink caffeine in coffee, tea, cocoa,
chocolate, and some soda pops. The actual source of
the caffeine comes from the coffee bean.
Caffeine is very bad for your body
and this is what could happen when you eat or drink
something with caffeine in it. If you drink or eat
caffeine, you could be deprived of sleep. When you are
deprived of sleep it means that you won't fall asleep
as quickly as you normally do. Also, it can increase
your alertness and if you drive a car, your motor
skills could change. You will notice you have many
more headaches and you will get dizzy and nervous
every once in a while.
Even though caffeine is legal, if
you have too much of it, one of these side effects
could happen to you.
