I guess this explains why I drink a full pot of coffee every morning! I cannot help it…it’s ‘in my genes!’ And I just love the coffee cup pictured above that my daughter Gina gave me too! Not only because it nice and big, but because it cracks me up comparing me to a ‘great bra!’ Whether or not you’re a caffeine junkie is in part determined by your genes according to a new study.
The study identified two genes associated with the amount of caffeine people consume. Both of the genes are known to be involved in the breakdown of caffeine in the liver. The findings suggest one of the main reasons why some people drink more caffeine than others is that the heavy drinkers are better able to tolerate it, is what the researchers say now.
I still crack up every time I read the HUGE coffee cup Gina gave me for my birthday this year!
It say’s: My MOM is like a great bra, supportive, never leaves me hanging, makes me look good and is always close to my heart!
Are you a caffeine junkie too?
