Can it kill you or something?!

Question: Can it kill you or something!?
Why are engry drinks bad for you!?
I heard it could stop your heart or you can get some type of heart problems or something like that!. Whats the deal!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Caffiene is a drug!. And as you know you can overdose on any type of drug, well except marujana and a few others!.!.!. But caffiene and sugar in high amounts can be severely painful!. too much sugar can give you massive stomachs pain and it comes back out worse than it came in as in vomiting and dihareah (not sure of the spelling) so the sugar is one main factor not to drink energy drinks the other is the caffiene!. Like I said it's a drug and you can OD on it!. It is very possible!. I think the drink which has the highest amount of caffiene only takes 4-5 cans in less than 2-2 1/2 hours I know that seems like a lot but the lethal dose of cafiene is fairly low compared to other drugs so be careful and limit your consumtion!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

8th grade health project!.!.!. HahaWww@FoodAQ@Com

Actually it's very difficult to overdose on caffeine, you almost have to try too hard!. It takes about 10 grams of caffeine to kill an average person!. That's equivalent to about 80-100 cups of coffee!. If you have heart problems, it could be a lot less, but then you should be avoiding it anyway!.

Energy drinks have a lot of sugar, as well as Ginkgo Biloba (Some dangerous side effects), Guarana (another stimulant), and Ginseng (affects people differently)!. Separately these things are possibly bad for you (especially the sugar and Ginko), together they can cause many problems, especially for people who drink a bunch every day!.Www@FoodAQ@Com


not sure but my opinion is that many of them have a HUGE sugar content which can totally screw up your insulin levels!. some people are not sensitive to this and now and again its ok for them!.!.!.but why risk it!?

some energy drinks can make you so hyper that your heart races which is NOT a good result!! can it cause heart problems!? not sure but again, do you want to risk this!?

i would ask your doctor about it, if you have low energy then something else can be wrong like anemia which can be solved by supplements or eating better!. be safe and ask the professionals!.!.!.your doctor!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I doubt it!. Most of them don't give your more pep than a cup of coffee!.

Overtime however, the extra sugar, sodium bicarbonate and sodium benzoate can cause you health problems!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

to the best of my knowledge it speeds up your heart beat and that is not goodWww@FoodAQ@Com
