Breaking News: Caffeine is a Stimulant

For those of you who may have missed it (damn the Democratic convention), a major scientific breakthrough has just been reported. Nope, it's no an effective AIDS vaccine, nor a miracle drug for chronic migraine sufferers. It's this, "Java Gives Caffeine-naive A Boost, Too." So, even if you're not a regular coffee drinker, "the caffeine advantage is indeed everything it's cracked up to be." Well, at least for women (the study didn't examine men). Hopefully the peeps down in Stockholm won't hold that against the researchers when they make their final decision for the Nobel prize in medicine.

Caffeine is the most widely used and abused psychoactive drug in the U.S., and it's legal, of course. If discontinuation occurs, withdrawals are just as brutal as with other psychotropic drugs.

With pregnant women, miscarriages occur if caffeine is taken in large amounts
