Could ever imagine that drinking coffee could endanger your life? It never struck me even once but today I read this story. Jasmine Willis, 17, developed a fever and began hyperventilating after drinking seven double espressos while working at her family's sandwich shop.
Here is how caffeine poisoning progresses:
- laughing and crying for no reason
- difficulty breathing which causes hyperventilation
- hot flushes
- palpitations (very, very high heart rate e.g., 180 bpm)
So brothers and sisters, drink too much coffee and you die!
