Caffeine; Medicinally

Caffeine inhibits absorption of iron, promoting anaemia, and can create deficiencies of inositol, calcium and magnesium, as it also interferes with their absoption, and as it raises the cholesterol level, it can increase susceptibility to heart attack.

On the plus side, a Harward study suggests that two cups of coffee a day can lower the risk of developing gallstones. See 'Calcium'; 'Chocolate'; 'Coffee';' Cola (Kola) Nuts';' Guarama'; 'Inositol'; 'Magnesium'; 'Theobromine';'Theophylline';' Xanthine'
