interesting article in Forbes that described caffeine as a natural pesticide (for real!), I thought I would pipe in and report the types of problems caffeine can cause in humans from an ENT perpective...
Caffiene can contribute to (some proven, some suspected, some debatable):
• Meniere's Disease
• Migraine Headaches
• Lump in Throat Sensation (Globus)
• Chronic throat clearing
• Dry throat
• Phlegmy throat
Alcohol and salt are other big as well as under-recognized items that may cause similar ENT issues.
