Caffeine is the most widely consumed drug in the world, most commonly from the beverages coffee, tea and soda. An estimated 80% of the world's population consumes a caffeine-containing substance daily. A typical 8-ounce (240-ml) cup of instant coffee contains about 100 mg of caffeine — about twice as much as a cup of tea or a 12-ounce (360-ml) can/bottle of soda. A 30-gram chocolate bar might contain as much caffeine as half a cup of tea. Pure caffeine can be obtained in powders, caplets or tablets in products like NoDoz.

If coffee consumed in moderate amount than it has no bad effect instead it is helpful to reduce chances of oral cancer and gallstone disease.

Actually I think sugar might be the most widely used drug in the world. And I think both caffeine and sugar pose risks to health if abused.

Definitely agree with the last post...sugar can be just as dangerous, and neither sugar/caffeine should be abused or negative effects will surely follow.

To the last post...7 cups a day might be tolerable for you (though it would certainly be above average), but it could be a difficult amount for many people to try to break the habit. I speak from some level of experience -- I used to drink about 10 cups of coffee a day, and when I tried to reduce that amount it was painful experience.

This is on top of the fact that 2-3 cups is considered safe, which equates to about 300mg of caffeine a day. Seven cups a day would put you up about 1000mg a day.

Lol -- yes it can be great for your health, unless you start drinking it in excess (which varies per person, but keep in mind 2-3 cups a day is about average for most people to tolerate).

A archetypal 8-ounce (240-ml) cup of burning coffee contains about 100 mg of caffeine — about alert as abundant as a cup of tea or a 12-ounce (360-ml) can/bottle of soda. A 30-gram amber bar ability accommodate as abundant caffeine as bisected a cup of tea. Pure caffeine can be acquired in powders, caplets or tablets in articles like NoDoz.
