Caffeine and Junk Food??

As if energy drinks aren't bad enough, now food manufacturers are adding caffeine to snack foods.
This CPSI article speaks to this practice. If junk food is bad junk food on speed can only be worse.

Joel Fuhrman has some interesting things to say about caffeine and cravings. He goes into a bit more detail in his book Eat To Live but I don't have time to quote extensively this morning. What he says makes sense in light of the concept of withdrawal. How sad is it that the food that most of us eat is such that we end up in withdrawal after eating it?
