So the effects of coffee and caffein are of interest to a great many people. But did you know that coffee wasn't introduced into Europe until the latter part of the 17th century? Coffee was first known to the Abyssin- jians in eastern Africa, and for a [period of 200 years all the world's coffee came from Yemen, in southern Arabia. The roasted coffee bean contains many substances, and the best-known of these is caffein. It is a substance chemically related to uric acid. Caffein is not found in-a free state, but combined with acids. A coffee bean contains about one per cent caf- fein. The effects produced by drinking coffee are not due only to the caffein, but caffein is the strongest of the substances in coffee. By the way, tea also contains caf- fein, but the same amount of caf- fein in tea has a different effect than when in coffee. The reason is that in each case the caffein is combined with different substances. Also, if you add milk or cream to coffee, the caffein combines with the protein of the milk, and its action is weakened. What is the effect of coffee on the body? Surprisingly enough, it has not one effect but many. Coffee dilates the vessels in the brain and improves circulation there. It I stimulates the nerve cells. It also I increases the work done by the heart. (You can see how for some people this would not be desirable.) Coffee works on the movement cf the intestine, and so has a miid laxative action. Coffee also makes the gastric glands secrete more juices, and for some people this produces j "heartburn," while for others iti helps digestion. Altogether, cof-! fee acts as a stimulant to the> body and nerves. This is why some people complain that it j i "keeps them up" at night. , Generally speaking, drinking '• coffee is a matter of individual decision. People who are used to it, find it helps them feel better. Nervous people are apt to be injured by it. And of course, people who drink it to excess may find it quite upsetting. But isn't that true of anything we eat or drink? By Jolita WiTDOESNTEVEN PROFESSOR PHTJMBLE By Bill Yates NOTHING SEEMS TO MAKEPT GO, DR. VON TOUTHRIE. &ISSEST BRAINS AT OUR COMMAND?
