Skip to comments.Study: Too Much Coffee Can Lead to Hallucinations
Posted on 06/07/2011 5:21:47 PM PDT by nickcarraway
A new study shows drinking five cups or more a day of coffee can cause hallucinations. The study claims it causes people to hear sounds and voices that don't really exist.
Researchers at La Trobe University in Australia played a "fuzzy sound" for 92 study participants; those who were very

Just tell her to start chain smoking. The schizo’s say it stops the voices for up to 8 minutes after each cig. :)
I'll see him later tonight. I'll rat you out ;-)
Ha! I know what payback means and how to use it! :-D
Great, I now have an excuse to increase my intake of coffee.
Ain’t modern science grand?
How many cup of coffee did the researchers have while conducting this study?
So THAT’s where those voices in my head come from!
I thought it was messages from the people who live on the other side of the moon!
Well, well, well. It’s in the coffee after all!
Wait until they take the straight-jacket off me and I can message all my FB friends!
/tad bit of sarcasm there
I have a friend who drinks about 3 gallons of coffee a day. She’s 77 years old, is in excellent health, and works a 3/4 job because she HAS to. If that’s what coffee drinking does for a person, it can’t be all bad.
Not nearly as bad as nicotine, though.
Another new study conducted by heavy caffeine users concluded that non-coffee-drinkers suffered from low-level hearing impairment.
I really love Arabian Mocha Sanani; but I don’t love it enough to want it stamped anywhere on my person!
It sounds more like a distortion than a hallucination.
I stopped listening to any of this stuff about two years ago. I finally figured out it is all an attempt to keep us frantic and hysterical. I tune it out.
I drink so much coffee that I have hallucinated an entire website full of wacky conservative voices. I almost quit coffee after I imagined some guy named Hussein got himself elected to the Presidency, but the voices told me things would get better by 2012.
And all this time I thought they were my special friends.
I take it that I need to post my coffee instructions?
Am I hallucinating, or does that gargoyle look like Richard Nixon?
Only if the voices remember the recipe.

In 12 cup drip percolator pot, fill to 6 cup mark with water.
In filter, put 6 heaping scoops of coffee.
Medium roast works best, just make sure it’s a robust blend.
Found a maxwellhouse ‘medium roast’ that was rather anemic.
Put pinch of salt in filter, about as much as it would take to cover the surface of a dime with one even layer.
This keeps the coffee from tasting burned too quickly, it doesn’t age well brewed this way.
Brew, recirculate if need be, usually not.
Add sugar and dairy creamer.
Creamora and coffeemate are not recommended unless you like the heart racing that Ranger Pudding gives.
That, and the nondairy creamer will give you both a headache and a buzz with the coffee.
I usually put about 8 spoons of sugar in this stuff, it ends up being like Russian Kava, thick and sweet with that bitter overtone to it.
Oh, and I am NOT responsible for seeming demonic possession of the coffeepot, or the coffeepot ending up acting as if it has been damaged.
Be sure NOT to add creamora or coffeemate to the brew, unless you LIKE ranger pudding style heart racing.
When I brew that stuff for myself, I recirculate the stuff to brew a second time, but that’s me for my own personal enjoyment, and it may wreck the coffeepot.
Don’t forget the salt, it’s important to the finished brew.
This is just absur.....whooooaa, I just saw a UFO...
