I have been writing and talking for a long time about the dangers of energy drinks and now we have another report that thousands of people go to the ER each year because of energy drinks. I’ll admit that I do enjoy my mug of black coffee each day, but I have never understood energy drinks. I can never get past the label. The list of ingredients should send everyone running. What I do understand is that hypnosis can end your desire for energy drinks and create a healthy desire for water, vegetables, whole grains, fruit and exercise. These are the ingredients of real, all natural energy. Learn self-hypnosis and end your unhealthy cravings.
Energy Drinks Send Thousands
to the ER Each Year
WebMD Health News, November 22, 2011: There’s been a big spike in the number of people who need emergency medical attention after they guzzle popular caffeinated energy drinks, according to a new government report.
The report shows a more than a tenfold increase in the number of emergency room visits tied to the use of these drinks between 2005 and 2009. In 2005, 1,128 ER visits were associated with the use of energy drinks compared to 13,114 in 2009. That number peaked in 2008 with more than 16,000 ER visits linked to energy drinks.
While 44% of cases involved energy drinks in combination with alcohol or other drugs, the report shows most people who wound up in the ER told doctors they had downed only energy drinks.
“There’s been quite a bit of attention paid to those energy drinks that have alcohol with them. What we found was that there are actually more visits for those energy drinks that don’t have alcohol,” says Albert Woodward, PhD, director of the Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in Rockville, Md. DAWN reports, such as this one, are published periodically by the network.
“People may think that the alcohol-caffeine drinks are dangerous, but they may not have any idea that the caffeine-only drinks are also potentially problematic,” Woodward says.
