  • The reactions of matter whether occurring in natural processes or in the laboratories can be interpreted using another language of chemistry – the equation. A chemical reaction transforms one or more substances into a set of different substances. The substances that enter into a chemical reaction are called reactants and the substances formed are the products.

  • Because caffeine is a substance used by the young and old in every country and on every continent its effects affect billions. In order to better understand these effects we must examine first where and why caffeine exists. We must observe its impact in nature on animals, plants and the environment that reveal the potential ways in which it can change, even destroy, life. Then, we will look at how it relates specifically to us, at the many pathways it impacts in our bodies once we ingest it, a
