ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the threat posed by regular energy drinks to individual and public health and safety in the U.S. Energy drinks refer to beverages containing modest to relatively high levels of caffeine. According to research, consumption of energy drink is potentially harmful because caffeine has been linked with adverse health effects and the practice of mixing energy drinks with alcohol has been associated to drinking high volumes of alcohol per session. The neuropharmacologic effects of caffeine are also discussed.
