Caffeine is so dangerous and is being consumed in such high quantities that it should now be regulated, a leading expert claims.

Dr James, editor in chief of the Journal of Caffeine Research, and head of the department of psychology at Reykjavik University, Iceland, says he is concerned that the substance is increasingly being added to products such as energy drinks, alcoholic drinks and medicines.

As a result, many of us are unwittingly consuming way more than we think - with worrying implications for our health and society as a whole.

Eum...if you're gonna buy an energy drink you can kinda excpect it's gonna have some caffeine in it. No need to get ridiculous about it.
And if you're gonna buy Tia Maria , a coffee liquor .... what do you expect? Lemon?
You have energy gums, again, energy .. what do you expect?
Weight loss pills? Caffeine? DUH

Cmon...

Does this article try to say that people can't even think associatively anymore that caffeine and energy are related concepts?
Seriously....

Like so many other things in our lives these days, moderation people, enjoy but don't over indulge.

Cup of coffee or two, OK.
Pot of coffee or two, Ouch.

I've been saying for years, after smoking they will start regulating what you you like to eat and drink and then there will be no stopping them. It won't be long before they have audio along with the surveillance cameras and you'll get tickets in the mail for uttering obscenities.

Something like this, from the article:
'He notes that while some countries in Europe and Scandinavia have begun to take regulatory action, including sales restrictions and product labelling, most countries including the UK and the U.S. have a ‘regulatory vacuum’.
...
He says that in order to highlight the risks of caffeine, products should be labelled with the amount they contain and sales to children in particular should be restricted.'

Don't think that caffeine needs to be regulated broadly. Now I humbly suggest that manufactures stop putting to much of it into sodas and then aim their advertisement towards little kids. Me? I'm for common sense, hoping it would catch on and become popular eventually.

I'm screwed. I drink about 4 cups of coffee a day. Then I might have green tea the rest of the day.

Well, that sounds reasonable. Not as sensationalist as the headline suggest. It sounded like he wants to deprive me my right to get coffenated in the morning.

How am I going to get my edge now?
Drink loads of tap water and Red Bull?
It's not the caffeine that will kill you but the sugar.
As far as I'm concerned caffeine only makes you wide alert.
It isn't like that old episode of Star Trek where sleep deprivation caused havoc.
Whoever came up with this needs to wake up and smell the coffee.
Because I'm not relying on tap water because all the impurities might not be filtered out.
But at least I'll get my wings even though Red Bull dosn't really give off an aroma.

This is stupid as hell.I can remember back when i was 15-17 playing football and ephedrine was in every supplement that claimed to boost energy and also contained caffeine.Ephedrine has been banned yet athletes who eat,drink,or anything else irresponsibly still die.Drink and drive = dead,Get yourself shot =dead,Natural causes = dead.This country and its people just cannot elect enough morons fast enough to regulate themselves to the same end.Live and die free,or live and die in chains.I prefer the former.

I can agree with with brown,the sugar is worse for your health than the caffeine.
