Central Perk "Friends Experience"

So this morning, I posted this photo of my morning coffee only to get to work and read the above HEADLINE! I’m good for 3-4 cups a day so it looks like I’ll be OK, but jeez! I’ve never even heard of caffeine powder!

Morning Coffee & Banana Bread

A 29-year-old man in Wales died after ingesting an amount of caffeine powder that equaled at least 200 cups of coffee. Authorities say Tom Mansfield’s death was confirmed as “caffeine toxicity,” according to the BBC. He reportedly accidentally measured the wrong dose of the powder. His wife told police, he started complaining that his chest hurt and his heart was beating fast. The autopsy showed Mansfield had caffeine levels of 392 milligrams per liter of blood; levels would be 2 to 4 milligrams per liter for a person who drank one cup of coffee.

Obviously not to this degree, but have you ever gotten scared/sick from too much caffeine? How much caffeine do you normally drink in a day?
