A lot of you really have no idea how harmful energy drinks are for you. My neighbor died from drinking Monsters, so I know first hand how harmful these drinks are.

I haven't touched an energy drink, or caffeine(im sensitive to caffeine) in over 5 years. I'm sure one, once in a while wont harm you but they market these like they're cool and healthy to consume.

Just sayin, be careful.

What does that have to do with anything? Doesn't change the fact that energy drinks aren't good for you.

"A 2007 article in the UK's "Daily Mail" shows that the very high caffeine content of energy drinks, as well as a chemical called taurine, caused a spike of between 8 and 11 percent of the resting heart rate and blood pressure of study participants after drinking two energy drinks each day for a full week."

I really never drunk energy for this simple fact my friends told me a several years back before energy drinks got really popular. The can cause heart arrhythmia.

" An arrhythmia (ah-RITH-me-ah) is a problem with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. During an arrhythmia, the heart can beat too fast, too slow, or with an irregular rhythm.

A heartbeat that is too fast is called tachycardia (TAK-ih-KAR-de-ah). A heartbeat that is too slow is called bradycardia (bray-de-KAR-de-ah).

Most arrhythmias are harmless, but some can be serious or even life threatening. During an arrhythmia, the heart may not be able to pump enough blood to the body. Lack of blood flow can damage the brain, heart, and other organs."

People seem to be missing that in almost all of these cases, there was an underlying medical condition the person already had. Completely healthy, active adults are not dropping over from a 5 hour energy shot or a monster.

Water has also been linked to numerous deaths. We should probably stop drinking it.

Seriously, energy drinks are not inherently bad for you. If you ingest too much caffeine, you'll put yourself at risk. If you have a pre-existing condition that necessities minimal or no caffeine intake, don't be surprised when you get yourself in trouble because you drank 48 ounces of Monster.

But I'm sure these people had pre-existing heart conditions.  I think caffeine has it's plus IMO.  My grandfather drank coffee all day literally drank nothing else, and my dude was out doing yard work in the day and chasing **** at night at the age of 78.  Then he got leukemia at 79 and it was a wrap, and he was dead by 80.   I think 5 hour energy is cool, but the carbonated ones are no good and have some kind of addictive ingredient in them besides caffeine.

is this like the time they said that four loko was bad because someone drank like six cans and died?
post #21 of 44
One of my fire professors said he began having irregular heart palpitations from drinking monsters. He was drinking about 3-5 a day. Doctor said it was a combination of the sleep deprivation, stress from his job, and the abuse of energy drinks. I have to agree a healthy adult will not be at risk from drinking a monster a day.

Ahh statistics, energy drinks can cause death. Can you point out the dependent and independent variable. I don't like how the information is provided, what type of tests were ran on those that died, eating habits, exercise, weight, age, previous health issues. Too many variables, show me better correlation.

I hope that answers your question.

Dude...you equated someone dying in their sleep to someone dying from energy drinks. Energy drinks are bad for you regardless of whether or not they kill you. Sleep isn't. But, I get what you're saying. Just a bad example.

What isn't being said and should be said is that Energy drinks,supplemental protein products and the slew of other things that are out there,isn't ment for the average american to consume on a daily basis.Most don't need that much of a boost for their daily activities nor do they need to consume that much protein,unless their doing intense manual labor and or are bodybuilders.It makes no sense too me and whats sad is that its not the just the adults anymore its the adolescent who are becoming hooked on to these products;15yr old teen drinking a energy drink just to play 'Call of duty' and pre-teens walking around drinking 16oz cups of coffee that was more than likely purchased with an adult.
What also needs to be addressed is the fact that Americans are becoming so use to having everything in a "right now",quick and fast as possible state,that they themselves don't weigh the risks,don't read the fine print and or just don't care what may happen to them as a result of using some of these products.Thats not the company's responsibility to look out for your best interest;these companys don't give a damn,they profit off of our ignorance and when people finally wake up to whats going on,its too late and they have moved on to the next new thing.
