I don't drink soda, no option for that. Also doesn't say what sort of tea. Doesn't even have other things listed such as chocolate with caffeine. And tolerance is common with caffeine, so no accounting for that.

It was designed for a specific result - I could not answer most of the questions.

So - here is the scientific answer, the LD50 for caffeine is 192 mg/kg (rat, oral). This means that's the dosage that will kill half the rats tested. How well this translates to LD50 for humans is left up to the scientific curiosity of the individual.

5 won't kill you. That's 1,5 liters.
Coffee is an antioxidant, it slows the aging process.

I use to have near a pot a day, plus teas, for a time. Could have been the cause to the blepharspasms I had, or it was post-delerium.... idk

Like most everything else, taken in moderation coffeine is just fine. BTW, dogs are very sensitive to caffeine, and the caffeine in one cup of coffee, or the theobromine (a compound related to coffeine) in a bar of chocolate is enough to kill a dog.

Ha ha ha, i just finished my science assignment on Energy Drinks and their effect on the body. Most energy drinks only have about 80mg/250mL of caffeine. But in Australia there have been about 20 deaths a year occur from people getting all caffeined up and dying.

Lol I got 'Aren't you dead yet?'.

I don't drink too many coffees or energy drinks during the day, but I don't weigh much so I guess that's what got me, haha!

I may or may not be drinking a can of 'Mother' right now... :s

I don't drink any soda or redbull, but i didn't have the option on the test.
I think that you may complete the test anyway, and still get the same message.

Antioxidants are not only in coffee:

I overdosed on caffeine once. Had to go to the hospital and drink charcoal and get a shot in the butt. Not cool.

i felt like i overdosed once.... "Iced King Mocha 6" had six shots of espresso. i was feeling good, so i followed it with a couple large fresh brewed coffees. then i wasn't feeling so good. i dont reckon the half pack of cigarettes helped matters.

final exams were rough that semester.
