THE MOST ABUSED DRUG IN THE WORLD IS CAFFEINE ?

Here's your (not so) totally useless fact of the day:

The most abused drug is not alcohol.

The most abused drug in the world is caffeine -

 found in sodas, coffee, tea,
cocoa, chocolate, candies, and many over-the-counter medicines.
According to the National INstitute on Drug Abuse, caffeine is
an addictive drug that creates physical dependence and causes
an increase in heart rate, body temperature,urine production,
and gastric juice secretion. Caffeine can also raise blood sugar
levels and cause tremors, loss of coordination, decreased appetite,
and postponement of fatigue, and it can interfere with the depth of
sleep and the amount of dream sleep.
