Here is an interesting article by Bob Condor at the Seattle PI on August 25, 2008, about researcher Kathleen Miller, PhD of the University of Buffalo’s Research Institute on Addictions studying Toxic Jock Identity. In her research she looked at the consumption of highly caffeinated energy drinks such as Red Bull, Monster and Rockstar.
Kathleen Miller had a nephew who was drinking a lot of energy drinks and becoming explosive and wondered if caffeine was part of the problem. A typical energy drink contains three times more caffeine than a soda pop and sometimes up to 10 times as much. A 12-ounce Coke or Pepsi has about 34 to 38 milligrams of caffeine, while the same amount of Red Bull or Monster has 116 to 120 milligrams.
In comparison, an espresso shot has about 75 milligrams and 12 ounces of regularly brewed coffee has roughly 250 milligrams. One difference, is coffee is usually served hot so we sip it but “energy drinks you can slam right back.”
