DANGERS OF STARBUCKS COFFEE & CAFFEINE / BRIEF HISTORY OF NARCOTICS IN AMERICA
Pastor Kevin Wilson comes from a part of the world where a cup of tea — chai — evokes the gravitas of a religious experience.
It was in childhood that the 29-year-old Sri Lankan native first developed his love for a good cup of chai. But he never thought to share his passion with the world, until he discovered TikTok.
Wilson, an associate pastor who heads the youth ministry at Oceanside Seventh-Day Adventist Church, expresses his love for spiced milk tea, or “chai,” through bite-size videos on TikTok. And the social media platform, wildly popular among teens and best known for its goofy dance videos, has loved him back.
He shreds ginger, pounds and crushes fresh, whole spices — star anise, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and peppercorns — in a mortar and pestle. He adds them to boiling water that rolls in a saucepan, drizzles in some milk and plops a spoon of sugar. Then, he strains the tea latte into a mug. It’s a rich, deep, brown color.
I do not use tea, either green or black. Not a spoonful has passed my lips for many years, except when crossing the ocean, and once since on this side I took it as a medicine when I was sick and vomiting. In such circumstances it may prove a present relief. PH096 53.3
Tea acts as a stimulant and, to a certain extent, produces intoxication. The action of coffee and many other popular drinks is similar. The first effect is exhilarating. The nerves of the stomach are excited; these convey irritation to the brain, and this in turn is aroused to impart increased action to the heart and short-lived energy to the entire system. Fatigue is forgotten; the strength seems to be increased. The intellect is aroused, the imagination becomes more vivid.Because of these results, many suppose that their tea or coffee is doing them great good. But this is a mistake. Tea and coffee do not nourish the system. Their effect is produced before there has been time for digestion and assimilation, and what seems to be strength is only nervous excitement. When the influence of the stimulant is gone, the unnatural force abates, and the result is a corresponding degree of languor and debility.The continued use of these nerve irritants is followed by headache, wakefulness, palpitation of the heart, indigestion, trembling, and many other evils; for they wear away the life forces. Tired nerves need rest and quiet instead of stimulation and overwork.150 Some have backslidden and tampered with tea and coffee. Those who break the laws of health will become blinded in their minds and break the law of God. CCh 104.8 - CCh 105.1
And, again, this is not all that is saved by the reform. The vegetarian diet, consisting of the grains, vegetables, and fruits, which are indeed the fat of the land , is far less expensive than the food usually eaten, of flesh, butter, sweet-cake, and pies, lard, saleratus, pepper, vinegar, pickles, allspice, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. When we first discarded these, and purchased for our family only such articles as flour, meal, vegetables, and fruits, we were surprised to see how little it cost to live. LIFSK 385.2
Let me run a contrast; Peaches against pork, apples against beef, plums against mutton, strawberries against tallow, cream against lard, unleavened bread against leavened bread, course flour against fine, water against teas and coffee, potatoes, peas, beans, against pound-cake and preserves, keen taste, good appetite, against pepper, salt, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, cayenne, and many other things which only the Genius of all evil, habited gastronomically, knows and impels to be mixed with your food. Is not the contrast great? HHTL 391.4
