I thought "This must be a clue regarding this thread. Probably not only the TV programming but that combined with the drinking of coffee -- so prevalent in America -- which causes this mental deterioration"
Coffee fans will find a way to ignore or cancel this out, but I think the idea is worth considering. Surely the coffee industry is so powerful that any findings to this effect would be stamped out immediately. It's indisputable that coffee interferes with the nervous system, such as in 'coffee jitters'. So why is it much of a stretch to envision that coffee erodes or destroys the brain's pathways and synapses ? Or does other neural damage ?
So Justice, I hope you are a tea drinker, if you consume any of the popular beverages ! Tea is civilized, where coffee is so rough.
I never understood the appeal of coffee, for me it's to strong. Though everyone around me especially my school friends loved it. I remember at one of my friend's birthdays, my friend got two cases of the drink ( the parents completely ingnoring studies that show kids who drink coffee get stunted growth.)
