Are High Levels of Caffeine Intake Harmful?

The Institute of Medicine recently held a two-day workshop examining the health effects of caffeine consumption in food and dietary supplements including "energy drinks." With millions of Americans consuming caffeine every day, understanding the potential hazards of caffeine is critical.
