Cafeine Essay, Research Paper
HAS CENTER GROVE SOLD US OUT?
Recently Center Grove High School agreed to a contract with the Pepsi Corporation for advertisement rights. In return Center Grove received a large sum of Pepsi money. The Pepsi Co. is also allowed to place their machines in our school cafeteria. Even more recently have they changed the machines from cans to larger more expensive bottles (which makes the problem worse). Center Grove has sold us out. With out taking our health into consideration, they signed it away. Of course we have the choice to drink soft drinks or not, but how many have already been drinking before the “Pepsi Invasion”. It seems that the people higher up the chain of command have ignored the possible health risks that come with drinking excessive amounts of caffeinated beverages. With their eyes full of money signs,—where do we end up in this???
-Well here is what the Pepsi Co. and Center Grove High School so generously contributed to:
EFFECTS OF EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF CAFFEINE ON THE BODY
-Brain: Great amounts of caffeine causes over stimulation in the brain. Which can result in anxiety, irritability, and restlessness. “When is the last time you saw that on a Mountain Dew Bottle ?”
-Heart: An over stimulated heart caused by caffeine creates higher blood pressure, and heart palpitations. “I guess since the school allows it in the cafeteria its ok . Right??”
-Stomach: Caffeine in the stomach can cause abdominal pain, and nausea.”
FOR ALL YOU DIET PEPSI DRINKERS OUT THERE:
Aspartame (an artificial sweetener) found in diet drinks can cause these side effects:
Headaches/Migraines Dizziness / Nausea
Seizures Muscle Spasms
Weight gain-(I thought they were “Diet Drinks”) Rashes
Irritability Tachycardia (Abnormally fast heart)
Insomnia Vision Problems
Hearing Loss Heat Palpitations
Breathing Difficulties Anxiety Attacks
Slurred Speech loss of taste
Tinnitus Joint Pain
HOLD ON THERE IS MORE!!!!
According to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of aspartame, the following chronic illnesses can be TRIGGERED or WORSENED by ingesting aspartame.
-Brain Tumors Multiple Sclerosis
-Epilepsy Chronic fatigue Syndrome
-Parkinson’s Disease Alzheimer’s
-Mental Retardation Lymphoma (growth of possible cancer cell in the lymph vessels)
-Birth Defects Fibromyalgia (Extreme muscle aches and pains)
So…..now that you are informed, next time you go to buy a caffienated (aspartame or not), ask yourself if it’s worth it.
And if you find this at all disturbing (I don’t know why you wouldn’t) do something about it.
DON’T DRINK IT / DON’T BUY IT! Some one will start to notice.
