Quick up, quick down: Work on getting plenty of sleep and exercise, eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated. Quick fixes for energy often drop you as fast as they pick you up. Emergen-c with a large glass of water can sometimes help.

Nature is balanced. What goes up comes down eventually. Quick fixes will fall apart quickly

Is it safe for me to drink caffeine while breastfeeding?

Yes: Most children tolerate small amounts of caffeine in breast milk just fine, so keep your intake on the low side. If the baby gets jittery when nursing after you consume caffeinated beverages, she's trying to tell you to cut back.

Yes: Just know that it may affect your baby. Observe your baby and see if there are differences in sleep and fussiness with differences in amounts of caffeine you drink. Some babies seem to be very sensitive, others not so much.

Most often: food!: The first thing that comes to mind, of course, is diabetes. But for many pregnant women, kidney function changes. Often, the same morning a pregnant women drinks a big glass of orange juice, we'll find sugar in her urine sample. However, that is not to say we ignore the findings -- all pregnant women do get tested for gestational diabetes between 24 and 28 weeks.

Proof of cell: Phone link not yet in, microwaves are relatively safe, but radiation is in the electromagnetic spectrum and is a clear cause, and u-v light is part of the spectrum causing skin cancers. All seem to demonstrate direct links to dose and time of exposure. X-rays seem to have no threshold, but very low doses are very unliklely to lead to individual harm, but to a population, a small number will.
