ABSTRACT
The article explores some of the bad effects of energy drinks. Reports claim that energy drinks can be lethal in combination with alcohol. Advertising for energy drinks such as Red Bull is mainly aimed at young adults and teenagers. These drinks, which contain caffeine, are being marketed as alcohol alternatives or additions, together with athlete sponsorships and product placement. Vulnerability to caffeine intoxication may be increased in young people who are not habitual caffeine users.
