Toddlers downing coffee in Boston (and maybe elsewhere)

Other studies have shown what you would most likely suspect when children consumed caffeine. It made them depressed and a good number came down with diabetes. Naturally they had sleep problems, and there was a high incidence of substance abuse and obesity.

What wasn’t mentioned in the study but is a problem is that when children drink coffee it affects their teeth. Coffee is acidic. Acidic drinks can cause damage in the mouth by weakening teeth; this leads to a decline in tooth enamel and an increase in cavities…

Well, it appears the real “gateway” drug is caffeine, not drugs like marijuana.  And if you believe in the gateway-drug theory, then the real “gateway” drug is Tylenol, as most people are given this drug when they’re infants and children.

If you don't comment, I'll just assume you agree with me
