Caffeine – 8/8/19

1)  Tea leaves have a higher caffeine content than coffee beans?

2)  Spiders become twice as effective at spinning webs when given caffeine?

3)  A teaspoon of powdered caffeine is equal to roughly 25 cups of coffee?

4)  It would take between 50 and 100 cups of coffee in one day to kill an adult?

________________________________

1)  Fact…but since the brewing method is weaker, a cup of tea has less caffeine than an equal size cup of coffee.

2)  Fake… their webs look like they were spun by a drunk spider as they can’t metabolize caffeine.  Bees on the other hand love it as some flowers have low levels of caffeine and it gives them a buzz and apparently helps with their memory.

3)  Fact.

4)  Fake…in a 4 hour period.
