Coffee Drinkers read this

In the New York Times Health section, there was a great article on caffeine intoxication. All you coffeeholics should read it. Some of you have that darting eyes look about you and can't seem to pay attention well.

After reading that, go check out the list of caffeine content of various drinks. Another list shows slightly higher values.

Putting this in perspective, a single large Starbucks coffee (500+ mg caffeine) has roughly the equivalent of FOUR cans of Red Bull or a SIXPACK of Mountain Dew soda in caffeine dosage.

So people please, watch your caffeine intake. Try to keep to the recommended 250 mg per day.
