Energy Drinks Linked to Heart Problems

A new study, presented to the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions, has found that consumption of energy drinks is linked to heart disease and high blood pressure. The linked article contains a description of the study.

These results are unsurprising because most energy drinks contain caffeine. Any problems associated with coffee, particularly excessive coffee drinking habits, are therefore likely to show up with energy drinks as well.

Particularly risky activities include taking the energy drink before or during exercise, or in conjunction with alcohol.
