Among the experiences reported were seeing things that were not there, hearing voices, and sensing the presence of dead people.

However, Mr James stressed more work was needed to pin down the link.
He said: “”Stressed people may simply drink more caffeine.””
And he added: “”Even if caffeine were responsible for hallucinations in some way, the part it plays would be small compared to other factors in life.””

The researchers now plan to investigate whether other aspects of diet, such as sugar and fat consumption, might be associated with hallucinations.

Dr Euan Paul, of the British Coffee Association, stressed the study only focused on people with a very high caffeine intake.
He also said no details were recorded of other substances consumed that might have had hallucinogenic effects.

“”There are literally thousands of well conducted published studies looking at all aspects of the coffee, caffeine and health debate and the overall conclusion clearly demonstrates that moderate caffeine intake, 400-500mg per day, is safe for the general population and may even confer health benefits.””
Recent research has linked high caffeine intake among pregnant women to miscarriage or low birth weight.
Other studies suggested it could help prevent skin cancer, reduce nerve damage associated with multiple sclerosis, or cause problems for diabetes sufferers.

Under stress
He said previous research had suggested factors such as childhood trauma could be linked to hallucinations.
When under stress, the body releases a hormone called cortisol which is produced in greater quantities after consuming caffeine.
The extra cortisol boost could be what causes a person to hallucinate.
Therefore, Mr James added, it made sense to examine the link between caffeine and mood.

Besides coffee, sources such as tea, chocolate, “”pep”” pills and energy drinks contain caffeine.
After asking the students about their typical intake, the research team assessed their susceptibility to hallucinatory experiences and stress levels.

People who drink too much coffee could start seeing ghosts or hearing strange voices, UK research has suggested.
People who drank more than seven cups of instant coffee a day were three times more likely to hallucinate than those who took just one, a study found.

A Durham University team questioned 200 students about their caffeine intake, the journal Personality and Individual Differences reported.
However, academics say the findings do not prove a “”causal link””.
They also stress that experiencing hallucinations is not a definite sign of mental illness and that about 3% of people regularly hear voices.

“”This is the first step toward looking at the wider factors associated with hallucinations,”” said psychology PhD student Simon Jones, who led the study.

Instant Coffee Is Neat Stuff How Is It Made?

Coffee Diet

Coffee Benefits

Instant coffee was invented back in 1906 by George C. Washington. He was an Englishman living in Guatemala and a chemist by trade. An avid coffee-drinker, he noticed a powdery buildup on the spout of his favorite silver coffee pot. That prompted his curiosity and further experimentation followed. He eventually produced a dried coffee crystal much like we still have today. His brand was called Red E Coffee.

Bascially, instant coffee is just regularly brewed coffee with nearly all the water removed. It’s not that mysterious a process at all. There is no strange chemical adulteration that goes on. Instant coffee is still pure coffee.

There are two methods for producing instant coffee crystals: freeze-drying and spray-drying. The freeze-drying method preserved the most ‘coffee flavour’ but it’s a more involved procedure. First, the coffee is allowed to sit so the water evaporates naturally, leaving a concentrated coffee solution. This concentrate is then frozen to around -40 Celsius. The remaining water freezes into ice crystals. Sublimation (a natural process similar to evaporation) is used to remove the ice. What’s left is dry grains of coffee.

The second method is spray-drying. The water is again allowed to evaporate, forming a concentrate. The concentrated coffee is sprayed from a high tower in a large hot-air chamber. As the droplets fall, the remaining water evaporates. Dry crystals of coffee fall to the bottom of the chamber. The high temperatures involved in this method do tend to effect the oils of the coffee and more flavour is lost.
Even if you don’t care for a whole cup of instant brew, you can still use instant coffee to add a tasty touch to other drinks, or even cooking and baking.

Antioxidant

Coffee is rich in antioxidant compounds, which help protect the body against the harmful effects of free radicals. Free radical damage has been implicated in a variety of chronic diseases and conditions, including cancer, cardiovascular disease and aging. According to W.W. Huber and W. Parzefall at the Medical University of Vienna, coffee contains the compound methylpyridinium, which has anti-cancer properties and isn’t found in any other food source. Methylpyridinium isn’t found in the raw coffee beans but is formed during the roasting process from trigonelline.

Liver Protection

Drinking coffee can reduce the incidence of cirrhosis of the liver, according to A.L. Klatsky and colleagues from the Department of Medicine, California. The researchers concluded this after a study of 125,580 multiethnic subjects, where it was found that among persons drinking 4 or more cups of coffee per day, the incidence of alcoholic cirrhosis was 80 percent less compared to persons drinking no coffee. Protective effects were also evident in persons drinking just 1 cup of coffee per day — these subjects had a 30 percent decrease in alcoholic cirrhosis risk compared to subjects drinking no coffee.

Instant Coffee Health Benefits Part 1

Coffee Diet

Coffee Benefits

Instant coffee contains several compounds which are known to affect the body. These substances originate from the coffee beans, some of which are part of the plant’s defense system. While coffee has some health benefits, bear in mind that over-consumption of coffee has toxic effects. One of the main substances in coffee is caffeine, which is considered the world’s most common psychoactive drug.

Stimulant and Cognitive Effects
Instant coffee is often consumed for its stimulant effect, which is due to caffeine. It is thus popular among students and workers alike. Other substances in coffee, independent of caffeine, stimulate the production of cortisone and adrenaline, two hormones which have stimulant effects.

A study carried out by J. Corley and colleagues at the University of Edinburgh investigated the association between caffeine consumption and cognitive decline in later life. The study involved 923 participants on whom there were intelligent quotient data from age 11. Cognitive function at age 70 was assessed and data about current caffeine consumption was collected. A significant positive association was found between drinking ground coffee and performance on the National Adult Reading Test and the Wechsler Test of Adult Reading.

Tips on Making the Best Gourmet Coffee at Home Part 2

Coffee Benefits

Grinder: Many will tell you that it is ok to use pre-ground breans, but I whole-heatedly disagree. The oils in pre-ground coffee beans tend to evaporate, causing them to lose some of their flavor. Make the investment and get a good grinder. For many aficionados,grinding beans is an art form – and as with any art, the artist is only as good as the tools he uses. You may be tempted to get one of the smaller (and cheaper) push down grinders – if that’s all that’s in your budget, be prepared to practice – a LOT! You do not want to over grind because it makes the coffee bitter. It is better to use a little more bean than to risk over grinding. The Kitchenaid Coffee Burr is a great grinder and worth the investment (search for sales and deals online to soften the blow to the wallet)

Bean Storage: You’ll likely find yourself storing your beans in the fridge or the freezer, but keep in mind that in order for the flavors to truly come forward – they have to be at room temperature. If you have more beans than you’ll use – keep them in an air tight container and place them in the freezer. When you remove them from the freezer for use, it is best to let them sit and “thaw” out for a minimum of 30 minutes.

Now these are just my personal tips from my very own kitchen, but you’ll need to really play around with your own recipes and understand your particulars when it comes to taste.

Tips on Making the Best Gourmet Coffee at Home Part 1

Coffee Diet

Coffee Benefits

Have you recently purchased a quality coffee maker for your home, but still find yourself running to the local coffee shop for that “special” tasting cup of brew? If so, you’re probably wasting a ton of money! Let me give you the best advice on making gourmet coffee at home!

Coffee: The first step in making that coffee house style is brew found in the perfect coffee bean. Yes, I hate to break it to you – but if you really want gourmet – you should start by grinding your own beans. Now, before we jump ahead to grinding your beans, you have to buy the best quality to start with. There is a wide variety of beans available on the market, from Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts to brands not known on a national scale. I personally suggest beans from The Roasterie in Kansas City Missouri. Their line includes a ton of flavors, but what they are most widely known for is the fact that they air roast their beans which leads to a more pure, better taste and aroma.

Water: You’d be surprised to know that the water you use really does make a huge difference in the taste of the final product. Most coffee makers have filters built in, so be sure to change yours on a regular basis. If your coffee machine does not have one built in, use filtered water instead of tap water. This should be done whether you are using a $300 machine or a generic $20 unit.
