Rumor out that I like my coffee in the morning it must be since I was given this question about coffee coffee junkies and people who are using this new -- -- caffeine in the question of whether or not it's if I have to say I haven't tried it.
In it but the inventor says it has about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee.
A hundred milligrams certainly easier to carry around doctors is that something that's safe to try.
Well you know -- -- my opinions on this are changing I spoke to the inventor of this doctor David Edwards from Harvard is a bio medical engineer.
He's currently in Paris to delivering information on this to the national academy of engineering.
He says Jamie that he's just study this and it's no different or actually it's much better than the energy drinks which have a lot more caffeine.
So he thinks this is safer than the energy drinks he made the point.
But it doesn't end up in your lungs that the particles are too big so they in the open your mouth so it's essentially the same as drinking a cup of coffee but funny thinks he thinks that the well I wanted to.
Yeah you -- here's what I think I think this too many caffeine products on the market.
I think we've talked about coffee a lot on the -- -- why we think it's an advantage I think you know how much caffeine you're getting with coffee I'm of afraid.
Of kids using this I think over eighteen it's probably okay but I think the last thing we needed was another caffeine products.
From my point of -- as an internist caffeine can raise your heart rate to raise your blood pressure people are taking this that really shouldn't be.
-- -- So I'm actually taking a complete different position on this I think this is actually the not a good idea to have -- in the market because it's not FDA approved.
I think they are saying that the particles are too big but a lot of pediatricians are worried about.
Exacerbation of asthma I and I think that.
Mixing this with alcohol is -- -- drastic issues.
For our kids because it keeps them -- longer they're going to continue to drink more basic coffee -- call is not a good situation.
You can buy this for three dollars don't need any IDs anybody can do it and I think one of the things asserted Charles Schumer has done.
Is really forcing that FDA to really look into this and make sure that they find that this -- that same thing with the four local that he did a year or two ago.
And they pulled it out of the market.
I think I would not jump -- and getting this so a lot of caffeine are.
I actually -- with darkness of modern sport I think that this is gonna lead to alcohol drinking and I think more of the wrong groups are -- and abusing this.
And I don't actually what I'm glad the FDA's taken -- I think if you -- -- truck driver you're treated for hours and hours and you really have to be using this has a desperate or care med student you're.
Cramming for -- once -- -- maybe it's OK but I won't have this out I sit at your apprehension of thanks so much.
