They're not going to kill you!. But many of these increasingly popular drinks contain significant amounts of caffeine, which can make you jittery and cause insomnia, as well as loads of sugar, which nobody needs!. Worse, these drinks are often marketed to kids and teenagers, many of whom already struggle with their weight and don't need to add a caffeine addiction!.Caffeine can increase anxiety, panic, some stomach problems, and some cardiac arrhythmias!. Although some data suggest that drinking coffee can be good for you!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Tons of sugar, tons of caffeine!.!.they may not be "bad" for you, but they sure aren't good for your health!. AND they're expensive too!. In most energy drinks the caffeine level is much higher than the FDA allows for soda!. Caffeine can increase anxiety, panic, some stomach problems, and cardiac problems!. There is some data suggest that SMALL amounts of caffeine can be good for you, but energy drinks supply a mega dose!. A cup of coffee (6 oz) provides 100 mg!. of caffeine, 6 oz of energy drink contains 280 mg of caffeine (now, do the math for a 24 oz!. can)!.
The fact is, an energy drink once in awhile isn't going to hurt you!.!.!.but it's never going to be a healthy choice!.

energy drinks can be bad for you in the long haul!. If you drink them for a long period of time, your body tends to become immune to them and craves more of the caffeine!. If you have a history in your family of heart problems, this could cause issues with that and also can mess up your sleeping schedule!. If you are having trouble with energy, then I would go check with a doctor!. My husband has to take B-12 shots because his body does not have enough!. This helps with his energy level!. I think if its an occasional thing then you will probably be okay!. Just don't get hooked on them!. Good luckWww@FoodAQ@Com

Once in awhile nothing is that bad for you (except for illegal drugs), but making a habit of drinking energy drinks can be really unhealthy!. They contain more sugar than sodas and as much caffeine as coffee!. It gives you lots of short term energy, but always makes it possible for your body to crash and feel worse than before!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Sometimes it's good!. Energy drinks are used for fluid replacements!. Just don't drink too much of it!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
