Brim voyage: Coffee, expanded consciousness and some harm

Saw this the other day at the Daily Dish. How could we not share?

And I guess to be fair we should mention having seen a new study from American University that found, for some, coffee is very addictive. Here is a little from PsychCentral on it:

A new study, however, suggests more people are dependent on caffeine to the point that they suffer withdrawal symptoms and are unable to reduce caffeine consumption even if they have another condition that may be impacted by caffeine–such as a pregnancy, a heart condition, or a bleeding disorder.

These symptoms combined are a condition called “Caffeine Use Disorder,” said coauthor Laura Juliano, Ph.D., a psychology professor at American University in Washington, D.C.

Researchers found that although caffeine is the most commonly used drug in the world–and is found in everything from coffee, tea, and soda, to over-the-counter pain relievers, overuse of caffeine can be dangerous.

All in all, we’d rather just watch the video.
