- Fight or flight activation for 3-6 weeks,  lower IQ centers of the brain are activated as well as hormonal systems in control of aggression, violence, irrational and illogical decision making, jealousy, rage, anger, fear and paranoia

- Brain imaging studies of chronic coffee drinkers, showed they presented the same degradation of their brains as chronic alcoholics, cigarette smokers, Parkinson's patients and marijuana users

- Caffeine causes deficiencies in iron, calcium, magnesium, b vitamins and zinc

- Caffeine raises homocysteine levels in the blood, increasing heart attack and stroke risk

- Coffee is a Class 2B Carcinogen like Lead and DDT
