Instant Coffee is Far Out, Causes Hallucinations...

Old hippies and frat boys will love this. A new study in Personality and Individual Differences claims people drinking 7 or more cups of instant coffee a day were 3 times more likely to hallucinate; psychotic experiences such as seeing ghosts and hearing voices. However, experts have their doubts, but, and this is really freaky, according to the report, 3% of people regularly hear voices; via BBC News.

Now, if hallucinating wasn’t bad enough! Previous research reveals daily coffee intake can actually shrink women’s breasts, 3 cups of coffee per day resulted in an average breast size 17% smaller than women who drank under 3 cups a day. Going insane and small boobies, sounds like a nightmare!

And other dangers of coffee, i.e. caffeine, consumption include heightened risk of osteoporosis, miscarriage and heart disease. So, is that morning pick-me-up really worth it? Probably not.

My God, Gerald, I am rapt.... you are the most emancipated man I have ever encountered, the way you are concerned about the size of women's breasts.

Is there a regular Dr Fuhrman ad in the magazine Jugs now too? Does Hooters serve Fuhrman-friendly food?

My guess is that small breasted women are likely healthier. Although I'm sure the coffee consumption has nothing to do with their health. They are probably also more self-accepting, or they would have had artificial enhancement like so many others who equate breast size with value.

Sounds like a frat boy wrote this one.

Lol, I love reading your comments here and there throughout the articles. That's exactly something my brother would say about coffee and breast size!

Gerry is a twenty something single male. I guess we have to expect an interest in women's breasts. We all know that would be the least of the problems with drinking a lot of coffee. Yes, Gerry plenty of non- coffee drinking nutritarian women have small breasts and are quite happy that way.

Hi Gerry
This morning my news is referencing a WebMD article showing that coffee can help prevent or ward off dementia.

"Moderate Coffee Drinking Reduces Risk of Dementia and Alzheimer’s by 65% in Study"

One day coffee is bad, next day it is a wonder drug, frustrating for us reading this stuff to draw conclusions.

Cheers, Steve

Come on "And other dangers of coffee, i.e. caffeine, consumption include heightened risk of osteoporosis, miscarriage and heart disease. So, is that morning pick-me-up really worth it? Probably not." If you need coffee as a pick me up then your kidding yourself, but If your like me and enjoy a nice expresso or good coffee after dinner with dessert I think of it as a good thing. 3 cups+ a day is too much. Coffee as wine should e done in moderation... Example wine is good for you, but drinking 3-4 glasses is not marginal returns people....
