Caffeine a health hazard

This PowerPoint is about caffeine and how it is over all unhealthy. I used mainly questions in order to keep the audience interested. The slide with the question asking “Is drinking coffee or energy drinks worth the side effects?” has no picture in order for the audience to focus on that question and come up with their own conclusion that should align with the conclusion on the next slide. Some of the pictures I chose to use are a bit shocking but I felt as if that would support my case very well.
