Energy Drinks

http://www.medpagetoday.com/PrimaryC...rition/tb/2865

GAINESVILLE, Fla., March 15 - Most so-called energy drinks are loaded with caffeine far above the FDA limit set for carbonated colas such as Pepsi or Coke, researchers here reported.


Because caffeine content is not disclosed on the label, these products may pose a health threat to unsuspecting consumers who should limit their caffeine intake, such as those with hypertension, pregnant women, or those who suffer from anxiety attacks, said Bruce A. Goldberger, Ph.D., and colleagues at the University of Florida College of Medicine here.


Energy drinks -- with brand names such as Red Bull and SoBe No Fear -- are not included in the FDA regulation that limits caffeine in colas or sodas, Dr. Goldberger and colleagues said in the March issue of the Journal of Analytic Toxicology.


The investigators tested the caffeine content of 10 energy drinks, 19 colas or sodas, and seven cold-coffee and iced-tea drinks.


The good news is that for all colas or sodas tested caffeine content was well below the FDA limit of 65 mg for a 12-ounce serving. In this category of drinks, caffeine content ranged from 18 mg to 48 mg per 12-ounce serving.


The caffeine content of energy drinks, however, ranged from 33 mg to nearly 77 mg per serving, with the majority being above the FDA recommended cola or soda limit. One product, SoBe No Fear, came in at 141 mg for a 16-ounce serving, the study found.


Several of the Starbucks brand coffee drinks were above the soda caffeine limit, most notably Starbucks Doubleshot, which had more than 105 mg of caffeine, the investigators said.


In certain people, caffeine causes serious health effects, such as anxiety, palpitations, irritability, difficulty sleeping, and stomach complaints, Dr. Goldberger said. Because caffeinated beverages do not list the amount of caffeine they contain on their labels, pregnant women, children, infants, or people with certain psychiatric diseases or anxiety conditions may unknowingly ingest too much, he added.


Although people tend to assume caffeinated beverages are safe, "People with psychiatric diseases could have manifestations of anxiety when they consume too much caffeine, and people with hypertension could increase their heart rate," Dr. Goldberger said.


Warning labels should accompany all caffeinated beverages, and nutritional labeling should be expanded to include the amount of caffeine per serving, the authors said.


In addition, "Considering the documented effects of caffeine on children and pregnant women, it would be prudent for the consumer product labeling of all caffeinated beverages to indicate the maximum amount of caffeine recommended for such groups," the authors concluded.



I never really drink those... but i know a couple people that live on that shit!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

I agree, I used to live on it when I worked two full time jobs. After I fell asleep behind the wheel and totalled my car I came to the realization that the body will eventually get used to it
