According to what I saw on the internet, here are the caffeine amounts for certain teas …
English Breakfast: 50mg
Black Tea: 40mg
Green Tea: 20 Mg
I suspect that these numbers could be inaccurate, because I sometimes have seen numbers that were higher.
Regardless, I think that it is still valid to use these numbers as a guide. It is easy to see how I could use this to slowly decrease my caffeine intake …
Day 1: I ingested 120 mg caffeine.
Day 2: I ingested 100 mg caffeine.
Day 3: I ingested 90 mg caffeine.
My plan is to continue going down in increments of 10 where possible. When I get down to 40 I might stay there a few days before going down to 20.

Needless to say, I think that flu shots save lives.

disease or early death. a full 40% of normal-weight individuals harbor
insulin resistance—a sign of chronic metabolic disease—which will
likely shorten their life expectancy. of those, 20% demonstrate liver
fat on MRI of the abdomen (see Chapter 8).7 Liver fat, irrespective of
the rest of body fat, has been shown to be a major risk factor for the
development of diabetes. You think you're safe? You are SO screwed.
And you don't even know it.

If I can add my 2 cents here, I am not sure that there is a clear cause and effect (causality). It is rare that I hear anyone say why being overweight would increase your chance of death. Instead there seems to be a casual association with other health problems.
One problem with this theory is that heavy people aren't very motivated to exercise.
