RAVENNA - Caffeinated: How Our Daily Habit Helps, Hurts and Hooks Us by Murray Carpenter

Apr 16 2014 7:00 pm
Apr 16 2014 8:00 pm

The most popular drug in America is a white powder. No, not that powder. This is caffeine in its most essential state. Caffeinated reveals the little-known truth about this addictive, largely unregulated drug found in coffee, energy drinks, teas, colas, chocolate, and even pain relievers.

We'll learn why caffeine has such a powerful effect on everything from boosting our mood to improving our athletic performance as well as how-and why-brands such as Coca-Cola have ducked regulatory efforts for decades. We learn the differences in the various ways caffeine is delivered to the body, how it is quietly used to reinforce our buying patterns, and how it can play a role in promoting surprising health problems like obesity and anxiety.
