So many people have given up soft drinks for energy drinks, that it’s now a billion dollar industry. Currently, there are at least 200 energy drinks on the market. So is it safe to get an energy drink buzz? Well, it CAN lead to bad behavior!
Researcher Dee Rollins says, “There was a time when we would get our caffeine intake from coffee and cola, but now there are a number of caffeine containing beverages and we need to be careful because over a period of 24 hours that caffeine intake is cumulative.” In fact, experts say energy drink consumers should keep careful track of the amount of caffeine they get in a day.
