ISA -July 27, 1975 (*MtieJUaif ABCsOF HEALTH What You've Been Drinking May Be Eating at Your Nerves By Marion Wells American Physical Fitneti Hwearc/i Inititute When was the last time such symptoms as unexplained irritability, nervousness, digestive discomfort, insomnia or palpitation of the heart left you looking for relief and anxious about your health? In some cases, part of what's eating you may be what you're drinking. If so, giving your physician this important clue may suggest a simple solution which ends up saving you money, medication and misery. The tipoff is how much caffeine you consume in a day. Caffeine does have recognized therapeutic value when used as prescribed. Nor do many physicians generally condemn moderate consumption of caffeinated drinks. However, as one authority notes. "In this age of excess, the waking hours are passed by many with a continuous oral infusion of one or more of these beverages." How big a dose of caffeine are you getting? In this country, estimated coffee consumption tops two billion pounds a year, and the caffeine count doesn't stop with the coffee cup. A certain amount also comes in tea, cola beverages, and even cocoa, chocolate and certain nonprescription medications. John Greden, M.D., former director of psychiatric research at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, pointed out that " . . . three cups of coffee, two. over- the-counter headache tablets, and one cola drink consumed in one morning approximate 500 milligrams of caffeine intake. Among heavy coffee or tea drinkers, dosages frequently exceed this by gross amounts." It's also worth remembering that the same dose of caffeine may affect different people differently. Writes Emanuel Cheraskin, M.D., "Anxiety symptoms can be brought about by coffee-drinking not generally considered excessive." * * * WHAT EFFECTS may caffeine have New Books At Library These books were among the titles received last week at the Kanawha County Public Library: Adult Fiction -- Brooks, Gone Away; Calmer, Late Show; Gary, The Enchanters; Gleason, Santeria, Bronx; Hunter, The Survivors; Hamsun, The Wanderer; Harrington, Scorpio 5; Heaven, The PI ace of Stones; Lukas, Slereoticon, Ogilvie, I mage of a Lover; Pollitz, The Forty-First Thief; Rayson, The Crows of War; Simpson, The Maze; Weaver, Given Him a Stone.

You may want to consider the following findings. Heart specialist Lawrence Lamb, M.D.. notes that caffeine "... is a powerful stimulant to the nervous system." He explains that "Just as chronic cigarette smoking can contribute to the persistent elevation of the resting heart rate so can a chronic large intake of coffee, tea, or Coke. In young, healthy, active males, resting heart rates in the middle eighties may decrease more than 15 beats per minute when these excesses are discontinued." Do you have a tendency to low blood sugar? Experts report that caffeine has the potential to trigger or aggravate low blood sugar symptoms. Those "10 a.m. jitters" may reflect your body's protest against a poorly balanced, high sugar breakfast washed down with coffee or tea. Such a combination may temporarily send blood sugar levels rising, only to "... plummet some two or three hours later, just in time for the midmorning coffee break." Is your digestive system feeling uncomfortable about your caffeine intake? Not only may caffeine increase digestive se- cretions, it may also prolong and augment the effects of other digestive stimuli. The pharmacological basis of therapeutics reports that "even decaffeinated coffee stimulates gastric secretion to a limited extent because of other constituents of the bean." Especially in excessive amounts, the essential oils of coffee may also be somewhat irritating. A common symptom is diarrhea. Anyone with a history of peptic ulcer should ask for and follow his physician's recommendations concerning ingestion of caffeine. Even an individual who felt no digestive discomfort from heavy coffee drinking in younger years may find overindulgence in caffeinated beverages causes digestive problems as he gets older, cautions John Eichenlaub, M.D. The equivalent of three cups of coffee daily may be enough to cause discomfort in sensitive individuals over time. "Digestive effects are slow to appear and slow to leave..." If caffeinat- ed drinks are suspect in your case, try dis- continuing'them and see if you feel better after a few weeks. Authorities say children are more susceptible to effects of caffeine than adults. . What's more, "... the use of tea, coffee, and cola drinks by children tends to crowd milk and fruit juices, with their essential food elements, out of the diet." Remember, continually overdosing on caffeine isn't apt to perk up your health! SUNDAY-MONDAY E.OJL SALE E.O.NL Sale End of month" means big bargains for you at Wards.
