Stay away from energy drinks, doctors say
In a new report, a large group of American doctors urge kids and teens to avoid energy drinks and only consume sports drinks in limited amount.

The recommendations come in the wake of a national debate over energy drinks, which experts fear may have side effects.

"Children never need energy drinks," said Dr. Holly Benjamin, of the American Academy of Pediatrics, who worked on the new report. "They contain caffeine and other stimulant substances that aren't nutritional, so you don't need them."

Re: Stay away from energy drinks, doctors say
red bull hooks you quick!

I'm told taurine is an amino acid, I can tell you as an old fart all those B vitamins really help


strangely other brands don't work as well


I also have noticed you only need about 4 ounces so I buy the big ones on sale then jar it up and fridge it




anyone else notice how they went from 8oz 2 for 4, to 12 oz 2 for 5, to 16 ounces 2 for six?

reminds me of the pusher man; "first fix free"!

Re: Stay away from energy drinks, doctors say
errrrmmmmm....so your title, is it wrong or something?

stay away from energy drinks IF YOU ARE A TEEN OR KID is what your quote says though, right?

common-fucking-sense, right? geez. sadly though, i was at the park with my kids and the little girl they were playing with was like, 18-months. her mom came over and said, 'you thirsty, sweetie??!' and hands her a FRICKIN ROCKSTAR! thats just sick.

maybe the doctors put out this message because of dumbfucks like that.

other than that, i don't see the problem with energy drinks unless its all you drink. c'mon, they got vitamins. ;P the caffeine content is really neither here nor there considering america's addiction to starbucks-type drinks.

anything in excess is bad for you and i can't imagine a reasonable amount of energy drinks are not going to harm your health, not any worse than the other crap they load into beverages and food stuff!

I've pretty much quit caffeine. I don't like heart palpitations much.

LOL yeah they are pushing it hard....cocaine in a can! Drinking a 20 oz right now lol. Everything we eat and/or drink is bad for us in some ways esp if we over-consume it. I can't stand coffee so I drink red-bull.

Your "doc" is an idiot.

"The caffeine content of a single can of Red Bull contains 80 mg/250 ml of caffeine.[31][32] This is about the same as one cup of normal coffee, or slightly less depending on the brewing method."

Who's your doc? Your dad? LOL How about you do some actual research instead of grabbing information out of your butt.

Re: Stay away from energy drinks, doctors say
LOL, someone had to make a few corrections this his post. I guess my intuition was correct about this idiot.

Keep talking out of your butt.

In your original statement, you claimed that Redbull had 3x more Caffeine than a cup of coffee. You never stated that you were drinking the larger can.

I presented you with facts about the Caffeine content of Redbull.

YOU were the done drinking from a 12 inch horse-cock Redbull can. And you're calling me a cock sucker? LOL
