Coffee Is Poison

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:

  1. laughing and crying for no reason
  2. fever
  3. difficulty breathing which causes hyperventilation
  4. hot flushes
  5. palpitations (very, very high heart rate e.g., 180 bpm)
  6. shock
  7. coma
  8. death
Scary right? Well that's the truth coffee contains caffeine which actually is a neurotoxin which forces the nerves to instruct muscles to contract out of control. Coffee plants evolved this toxin to kill off pests. Unfortunately, some of these bugs got addicted to caffeine and went on ravaging coffee plants. Then humans got into taking coffee. It was the Turks who first brewed coffee, they used it as a substitute stimulant to wine. Forget all the logic that stimulants are haram. Today caffeine is used to keep people awake and a pesticide. Yes, pesticide!

So brothers and sisters, drink too much coffee and you die!

    Owh n on a more serious note; Heard once that drinking coffee marginally increases your alertness in the long term but can cause wrinkles or other premature signs of aging in teenagers. Apparently it also messes with your vision...

    But i really don't know how true all this is... Just remember reading it in the papers or something... ;P
