Lethal dose of caffeine
Caffeine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Though achieving lethal dose of caffeine would be difficult with regular coffee, it is easier to reach high doses with caffeine pills, and the lethal dose can be lower.

It is most commonly consumed by humans in infusions extracted from the seed of the coffee plant and the leaves of the tea bush, as well as from various foods and drinks containing products derived from the kola nut. Caffeine ( / k æ ˈ f iː n, ˈ k æ f iː n, ˈ k æ f iː ɪ n / ) is a bitter, white crystalline xanthine alkaloid and a stimulant drug. Other sources include yerba mate, guarana berries, guayusa, and the yaupon holly. Caffeine is found in varying quantities in the seeds, leaves, and fruit of some plants, where it acts as a natural pesticide that paralyzes and kills certain insects feeding on the plants, as well as enhancing the reward memory of pollinators.

Caffeine overdose can result in a state of central nervous system over-stimulation called caffeine intoxication ( DSM-IV 305.90).

FYI How Much Caffeine Would It Take To Kill You? Popular Science

The coroner's report described "caffeine toxicity" as contributing to her death. Just what does it take to ingest a lethal dose of caffeine?.

Do not eat solely for pleasure. Make a conscious mature choice to feed your body what it needs to be healthy. Eat to live. Do not live to eat.

From a medical point of view, caffeine is considered as having more health benefits than risks but only in the case of a moderate consumption: www.ephedrinewheretobuy.com/ephedrine-where-to-buy-eca-stacks/coffee-a-true-wonder-drug.

So it is the manufacture that should be more responsible and it is the individual who should be more responsible too.

Lethal Doses of Water, Caffeine and Alcohol Compound Interest

Today's graphic is a whimsical look at lethal doses of chemicals we consume on a regular basis. Whilst it may be more common to view.

This document corroborates the figure of 350mg/dL as the approximate median lethal blood ethanol concentration: http://www.rcpi.ie/content/docs/000001/914_5_media.pdf.

The value given for ethanol here is based on a blood alcohol level of 350mg/dL. The reference for this value is the toxicologist mentioned in the article, who specifically works in post-mortem forensic toxicology, so I trust him to know a good deal more about these values than I do!.

The only way that would change is if our ethanol tolerence is far lower than that of a rat.

Caffeine is probably the most widely used drug. It falls in the stimulant class, and effects the central nervous system. The lethal dose of caffeine.

The Effects of Caffeine in the Body Caffeine is probably the most widely used drug. This corresponds to drinking about 80-100 cups of coffee in a short period of time assuming the entire amount was absorbed into the body. It falls in the stimulant class, and effects the central nervous system. In greater quantities (greater than 2 grams), insomnia, agitation, tremors, and rapid breathing begin to appear. Doses of 100-200 mg result in increased alertness and wakefulness, faster and clearer flow of thought, increased focus, and better general body coordination. It is rapidly absorbed through the stomach lining, and reaches the bloodstream in within 30-45 minutes. The lethal dose of caffeine is too high to be of daily concern; the lethal dose is 170 mg/kg, or 12.5-14.6 g for an average adult male. It becomes equally distributed throughout the water of the body, later being metabolized in the liver and expelled via the kidneys. It also results in restlessness, a loss of fine motor control, headaches, and dizziness. The half-life of a dose of caffeine is 3.5-4 hours, though pregnant women generally maintain caffeine levels longer (half-life of 3-10 hours). Caffeine stimulates the heart, dilates the vessels (increasing blood pressure), causes bronchial relaxation (can be used as an antiasthmatic drug), increases gastric acid production, and boosts the metabolic rate. Caffeine also fits the definition of an addictive substance, with withdrawal symptoms, an increase in tolerance over time, and physical cravings. In particular, caffeine targets the cerebral cortex and the brain stem in the central nervous systems.
