The Lowdown on Caffeine

      The most popular drug in America is a white powder-- caffeine in its most essential state. Murray Carpenter, author of the new book Caffeinated, reveals the little-known truth about this addictive, largely unregulated drug found in coffee, energy drinks, teas, colas, chocolate, and even pain relievers.Caffeine has such a powerful effect on everything... from boosting our mood to improving our athletic performance. It is quietly used to reinforce our buying patterns, and can play a role in promoting surprising health problems like obesity and anxiety.
