HealthyAnswers.com recently warned its readers about the health hazards of popular energy drinks. In a recent Fox News report [FDA investigating link between energy drinks, health problems, Fox23 News, October 2012], HealthyAnswers.com cited the findings that 5 recent deaths have occurred in people consuming energy drinks with very high levels of caffeine. It was also noted that the FDA is investigating the deaths and considering banning the drinks.
HealthyAnswers.com resident medical expert, Mark Rosenberg, M.D., explains the problems associated with energy drinks. “Most health professionals agree that 600 mg a day of caffeine is okay for most people to consume. Yet, energy drinks may contain 1,000 to 1,400 mg of caffeine, several times the amount of caffeine in one cup of coffee, or a 12-ounce can of caffeinated soft drink. Doctors around the country have reported seeing patients with negative health effects after consuming energy drinks with very high levels of caffeine. Adverse effects may include high blood pressure spikes, very fast, pounding, irregular heartbeats, which can cause fainting and/or stroke. At this time energy drinks are not labeled for possible health hazards from the amount of caffeine they contain.”
