On 29 May 2019 MarketWatch reported:
Consuming 32 ounces of energy drinks ... in under an hour spiked the risk of electrical disturbances in the heart for as long as four hours after the drinks were consumed, according to a small study published in Journal of the American Heart Association. Last fall, another American Heart Association study found that drinking just one energy drink narrowed blood vessels 90 minutes later, which increases the risk of blockages that cause heart attacks and strokes. The U.S. military has also warned that energy drinks could do 'serious harm' to troops' bodies, and noted that soldiers in the field were more likely to fall asleep on duty if they consumed multiple beverages a day.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern health systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
A 2017 Frontiers in Public Health review of energy drink research also associated energy drink consumption with risk-seeking behavior, mental health problems, increased blood pressure, dental problems, obesity and kidney damage. 'The energy drink industry has grown dramatically in the past 20 years, culminating in a nearly $10 billion per year industry in the United States,' wrote Dr. Josiemer Mattei, Assistant Professor of Nutrition based at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. 'They are often marketed as a healthy beverage that people can adopt to improve their energy, stamina, athletic performance and concentration, but our review shows there are important health consequences, and little is known about many of their non-nutritive stimulants such as guarana and taurine.'
... A 2018 study found 40 percent of teens aged 13 to 19 reported side effects from ingesting energy drinks, including heart palpitations, insomnia, feeling 'jittery,' chest pain, labored breathing, and even seizures, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The U.S. military has also warned that energy drinks could do 'serious harm' to troops' bodies, and noted that soldiers in the field were more likely to fall asleep on duty if they consumed multiple beverages a day.
