I see. So with some energy drinks you only need about four cans to come close to 1 g of caffeine. In Germany the highest caffeine concentration of available energy drinks is 33 g per 100 ml (= 3.38 oz). So there's not much danger there.

You're right, of course, it's "mg". Stupid typing error. Already corrected my post.

I sometimes feel like I'm intaking too much caffeine so I cut back. Have to listen to your body I guess? I still think it's much better than overloading on sugar and junk food but to each his own I guess.

IMHO caffeine dependency is only a problem when you can't get any and develop withdrawal symptoms.

I try to limit myself to two cups of coffee a day. The issue with taking too much caffeine is it becomes a vicious cycle-- can't sleep, drink more coffee, then can't sleep again as a result, drink more the next day. I think it's even more difficult for people who work late. More than four cups a day is extremely negative for your health:

I more or less disagree. Based on up-to-date scientific data the Deutsches Grünes Kreuz advised in 2009: "Drinking two, three, four or even more cups of coffee per day has positive effects on numerous internal organs and body functions. There even seems to be a protective or preventative effect in some diseases. In in most cases, there is no reason to stop drinking coffee for medical considerations. However, in individual cases it's advisable to consult your doctor, especially during pregnancy."

One of my products of choice is Anadin Extra, each tablet contains: Aspirin 300mg, Paracetamol 200mg, Caffeine 45mg. Useful to take a couple when you get one of those 'lack of caffeine'  dull headaches.

I just had a gastroenterologist notify me that aspirin causes ulcerations -( period )- She went so far as to say, even injected not digested, causes ulcerations to tissue.  This is NOT the simple safe be all end all people with a vested interest in selling you a daily aspirin want you to think it is...  People with other problems; just can make matters worse. Interesting "food" for thought wot?

This has been perfectly true for quite a very long time and counts for all so called NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) pain killers like ibuprofen or diclofenac, for example, that are widely used. In the case of aspirin it's a matter of weighing the pro and cons of that drug. Unless a patient is highly susceptible to developing ulcers, the beneficial effects of acetylsalicylic acid (especially preventing heart attacks and strokes, but also reducing the risk of colorectal cancer) are usually considered greater than the possible side effects.
