According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), 80 percent of adults in the United States consume caffeine on a daily basis, and they take in an average of 200 milligrams (the equivalent of two five-ounce cups of coffee) per day. In addition, many athletes depend on caffeine to get them through a race.
With those stats in mind, it actually begins to make (some) sense that a recent survey of over 7,000 people found that most of them said they’d prefer coffee over sex. That’s one popular stimulant!
Even though you more than likely consume caffeine on a regular basis, Women’s Health bets that you don’t know much more about the stuff, other than (a) it’s in coffee and certain sodas, and (b) it’s an energy-booster.
