The Hidden Dangers of Energy Drinks
Energy drinks (e.g. Monster, Red Bull, Rockstar, AMP, or 5 Hour Energy) can be dangerous, especially to people with underlying heart conditions, those sensitive to caffeine and other vulnerable populations.
The multi-billion dollar energy drink industry has not done adequate testing on these products, and the energy drink companies do not properly warn consumers of the dangers associated with the products.
The energy drink industry is essentially unregulated by the FDA despite the fact that the FDA has received dozens of adverse event reports related to energy drinks.
Some energy drink companies target their marketing at young people, including children under age 18, many of whom have undiagnosed heart conditions because of their youth (the U.S. Senate is investigating this).
When these vulnerable individuals consume energy drinks, the results can be fatal. It is not just the caffeine, it is the synergistic effect of the:
- panax ginseng
… and other synthetic chemicals in energy drinks that seems to be causing cardiac injuries.
