Alarming report: Energy drinks have life-threatening side effects
According to the National Institutes of Health, “a growing body of scientific evidence shows that energy drinks can have serious health effects, particularly in children, teenagers, and young adults.” So, why are these products still being sold – to this day?! After reading this report, you’ll understand why we think these products are a big mistake.
Thousands of people to date have faced serious, sometimes deadly side effects as a result of consuming energy drinks, and an alarming number of these victims have been children. In fact, the lead author of the research published in the Journal of the American Heart Association has said, ‘the public should be aware of the impact of energy drinks on their body, especially if they have other underlying health conditions.”
The severe side effects of these drinks included seizures, elevated blood pressure, and irregular heartbeat. And, the fact remains: most of these kids didn’t even know what they were consuming. They simply found them left around the home by an adult.
