Interesting.

Quote:Caffeine as a new drug of choice, lead researcher Dr. Danielle McCarthy suggested, was the result of "aggressive marketing of high-content caffeine-containing beverages."

What are some examples of such beverages?
Quote:Symptoms of caffeine overdose include "everything from nausea, vomiting and a racing heart to hallucinations, panic attacks, chest pains and trips to the emergency room," the Tribune said.
The only time I felt nauseous (can't remember whether my heart was racing) from ingesting too much caffeine was when I attended a coffee barista training course where I drank copious shots of espresso, because we kept practising how to pull the perfect espresso from the machine and I felt it was a terrible waste to pour them all away. It was a really unpleasant feeling. Almost like a hangover, except I was not vomitting nor feeling groggy.

"Supplements" seems to mean caffeine pills. I don't think anyone is going to end up in the emergency room from drinking too many lattes. It takes a lot.
