Caffeine is the only drug that is present naturally or added to widely consumed foods (quinine is the other drug used in foods).

It is mildly addictive, one possible reason that makers of soft drinks add it to their products. Many coffee drinkers experience withdrawal symptoms, such as headaches, irritability, sleepiness, and lethargy, when they stop drinking coffee. Like any drug, the effects of caffeine on the body are not wholly good or bad. But exactly how much caffeine is there in the food and beverages you consume?
