If she seems a bit strict on the health end of things, well, perhaps she's chosen life rather than brain numbing alcohol or artificial buzzes like coffee. And she's actually pretty interesting if you can ever see past the ends of your collective ... arms.

      You might confuse him if you used big words like exogenous and endogenous. Thanks for the backup Joanie. Yes, I am very strict with a clean diet and no exogenous drugs because seizures and cancer are not fun at all. I run a very clean body here.

      Yes, I have read that there is something about the oils in the coffee beans which can effect digestion. Will try to find citation on that.

          fyi I don't think Paleobird is boring, the opposite in fact, she's strangely fascinating to me. I just like to playfully tease her from time to time.

                  Try this stuff. Teeccino Caffeine-Free Herbal Coffee They have a grain free blend that might work for you. Seriously good tasting stuff.

                  Do you buy it locally, or order it online? I like chicory, and this sounds good.

                    I buy it online since my local Sprouts and WF do carry it but only the kind with barley. They don't have the grain free one.

                              LOL! Sometimes sarcasm doesn't work in print, but that was quite good.

                                There is an interesting phenomenon called "hormesis" that could come in to play with coffee. Intuitively we think that we need to reduce all the toxins in our environment, but many of the so-called toxins have positive health effects at low doses. Plants make toxins to protect themselves from predators (insects, herbivores, Grok's, etc.) I've read that the caffeine in the coffee plant is toxic to many insects.

                                But, for example, members of the Broccoli/Cauliflower family of plants have low level toxins. When we eat them, the theory is that it stimulates our toxin-handling systems, sort of like exercise stimulates our muscles by stressing them. I looked briefly at health effects of caffeine, and find that coffee drinkers get LESS scarring when they have chronic hepatitis. That's a big deal, especially since I work in a liver transplant hospital.

                                That said, some of us shouldn't drink coffee/caffeine. It can worsen esophageal reflux disease and can increase gastric acid production. It can worsen abnormal heart rhythms. It can cause insulin release in some of us which can lead to excessive gnawing hunger. It might make high blood pressure higher. Taken at night it can interfere with restful sleep.

                                On the other hand caffeine is well recognized to increase energy levels and wakefulness, and it makes many of us a bit sharper. So far, for me, caffeine is still on my menu.
