Center...etc. The authors propose of writing this article was to provide statistics and data of caffeine use

audience in this article is probably going to be usual coffee users and marine corps personal with active
duty navy. The research conducted in this matter was not only considering caffeine consumption it also
includes Tea, Energy drinks, Soda, Gum and medication. In other words, any form of sugar or caffeine. In
these data, it shown that personal from the age of 18 to 35 consume more than half of personals in the

2)Vera, Nathalie. "Coffee and College Students: A Harmful Relationship?" The Bottom Line.
N.p., 29 Oct. 2013. Web. 23 Mar. 2017.
This is a journal published by a staff writer named Nathalie Vera on The Bottom Line webpage.
It provides several arguments and reasoning for misuse of caffeine to the amount which makes it
addictive in college students. The purpose of this article is to provide certain information that
drinking coffee itself is not harmful to the human body but as everything, consuming too much
of something can have catastrophic consonances. Several conclusions have been made in the
article. One o them is that caffeine may not be addictive but after drinking it daily the body likes.
Perhaps that’s why it takes five to six hours for the body to eliminate about half the caffeine in a
cup of coffee. Overall, doing anything in moderation is all what a person should do in order to be
healthy.as been stated before that consuming too much cups of coffee can do more harm than
good if a student pull an all nightery.
3)"Nancy Snyderman debunks new coffee study." TODAY.com. N.p., 16 Aug. 2013. Web. 24
This is a video of NBC medical correspondent Nancy Snyderman. The purpose of this video is to
argue that there are major holes in a new study that says people who drink more than four cups of
coffee a day have a significantly increased risk of death. The intended audience in this video is the
average American coffee consumer or world-wide coffee consumers. Personally, I don’t think this
illustrates a good scientific reasoning, what I would do if I were working in NBC is that I would
provide an expert scientist in this matter and I would let him explain his argument based on several
experiments and why he thinks that those evidences are correct for the viewer to believe in this stuff.
Overall, this is beneficial for me only as what the media sometimes mention and what it does to
make people believe which what the media is used to do.

24 Mar. 2017.
This is a web-page article that was written by Scott which is a professional writer for Driftaway
Coffee. He worked as a barista for eight years, but today prefers to enjoy his beverages from the
other side of the counter as a writer. His article interduces several reasons and explanations of
why does consuming coffee makes you sleepy and tired. As always this is a very general topic
that everybody who consumes coffee should be interested in. It is true that the author is
professional in working as a barista, but I don’t think working as a barista makes you an expert
in the body counter reaction to coffee consumptions illustrate, the reasoning mentioned in the
article is not based on any studies or data, which makes it less desired to be used in the research
but good for reading it and knowing more about regular coffee consumer and professional barista
