Caffeineís Effects [posted 8/4/98]
Question: I was wondering if you knew what the affect of caffeine was on a persons body? If a person was running on a treadmill, and had consumed caffeine, would it affect the personís pulse rate, amount of calories they burn of, and distance they run? Also, do you know what distance on a treadmill is measured in?

Answer: It would have a minimal/no effect on burning calories. There could be a small effect on pulse rate depending on the dosage and the patients previous caffeine tolerance. Distances on tread mills can be measured in either miles/hr or km/hr.

Side Effects
Question: If you drink a lot of caffeine can you experience dilated eyes? And will it make you impotent?

Answer: No and No.
