Short Term Effects
Top 10 Energy Drink Side Effects
Recent research in Australia has highlighted the risks with over-consumption of energy drinks. This data was gathered from 7 years of calls to the Australian Poisons Center.
Listed in order of most common to least common:
1 Palpitations / tachycardia
2 Tremor / shaking
3 Agitation / restlessness
4 Gastrointestinal upset
5 Chest pain / ischaemia
6 Dizziness / syncope
7 Paraesthesia (tingling or numbing of the skin)
9 Respiratory distress
So energy drinks actually make you more tired in the long run
Energy drinks haven't been around long enough for us to learn the long term effects from them
And caffeine is an addictive substance with mild withdrawal symptoms (headaches, shaking)
Also... caffeine is a Diuretic, meaning it causes you to become dehydrated (not the best idea for exercise)
Energy drinks can be most dangerous in combination with other drugs, for example, alcohol. This is because the caffeine rush makes you feel like you've had less to drink. And alcohol is a Diuretic, same as energy drinks. Surprisingly, there are many alcoholic energy drinks produced and sold in North America.
Is it really all that bad?
-The deaths of 5 people have been linked to Monster alone
-Five Hour Energy is blamed for the deaths of 13 people
-A recent government survey indicates that from 2007 to 2011, the number of emergency department (ED) visits related to energy drink consumption nearly doubled, increasing from 10,068 to 20,783.
-Energy drinks are known to be deadly to people with heart conditions
but still not healthy
Energy drink bans
Most schools ban the sale of energy drinks, and some countries have/are currently implementing bans of energy drinks (ex. Saudi Arabia).
what do you think should be allowed?
-sale to minors?
The idea is that they give you a boost of energy.
Why do you think we drink them?
and how do they effect us?
Can we trust all this info thrown on the internet?
Ted Kallmyer has been caffeine expert for 12 years. He has advanced degrees in Biology and Counseling, and runs numerous health focused websites like 'caffeineinformer.com' and 'Diet-Blog.com'. Where I did much of my research for this project. The rest of my information came from dietary and health based websites like 'The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI.org)
