I'm a big fan of them, but I also know that they really aren't good for you. But how bad are they? I drink 2-4 a week max. I feel really conscious about them when I do drink them though. Are they that much worse than a regular soda? When I'm not drinking one of them, I drink nothing but water or maybe green tea.

heart attacks from taurine i think. but they can all impair vision or something like that. their banned in schools and some sports events so i guess they must be bad
#6
Other than 90% of them tasting like ****, I don't think that they are more harmful than soda.

Well obviously if you have too much at once, they can be bad for you. But one every once in while won't hurt you, and they're pretty much just pop with more caffeine.
#8
i have a friend that can drink 12+ at the time and now be affected at all
i have another friend that cant finish half before hes got a headache from the caffine
so i guess it depends on the person

If you drink one, then go do sports or watch a horror film or have sex or do w/e to raise your heart rate even more you could have a heart attack.

They're much worse than coffee, and regular soda as well. They have way more caffeine, and have more sugar than any other drink on the planet. Plus, people are now drinking them in 16 and 24 ounce sizes, which increases the harm even more.

Of course, everything in moderation is fine. Just make sure you're not eating a ton of sugar elsewhere, and aren't downing them like water.
I simply cannot take this god-awful place anymore. Goodbye to all the good people here. The rest can fuck off.

my friend just pulled up this for me:

Around the USA, the drinks have been linked with reports of nausea, abnormal heart rhythms and emergency room visits. [1]


Energy drinks may cause seizures in those who suffer from certain forms of epilepsy due to the "crash" following the energy high that occurs after consumption.[4] France banned the popular energy drink Red Bull after the death of eighteen-year-old athlete Ross Cooney, who died after he played a basketball game after consuming four cans of the drink.[5] The French Scientific Committee (J.D. Birkel) concluded that Red Bull has excessive amounts of caffeine.[5] Denmark also banned Red Bull. Britain investigated the drink, but only issued a warning against its use by pregnant women.[5]

I do try to moderate. I'll only drink 4 a week at the maximum, and no more than 1 a day. Days when I do drink them I try to balance it out with healthier food. Also when I drink them I try to go at least 2 days after with no soda or caffiene.

Main effect of large doses is a massive increase of Faggotry in the body's circulatory system.
Seriously, most kids in my school that drink em think that theyre like heroin or something. They drink them in the caffeteria before classes start because they think its cool and wear Rockstar or Monster hoodies to school. Plus they go around acting all pumped and **** and screaming "monsters are almost as br00tal as Chiodos!!!****!!!". There really isnt that much caffeine in em.

Im pretty sure that they cant be that bad for you. Hell, i drink like 20 Mountain Dews a week and theyre supposed to have a lot of caffeine yet there are no side effects.

2-4 a week wont mess you up at all.

I've heard alot of dumbass kids OD on the caffeine in them. If you drink them regularly i wouldnt be suprised if you had diabetes in 30 or so years. Its not just the caffeine and sugar thats so bad in them, they've got taurine, guarine, and creatine (known to cause heart attacks at an early age if taken to often) among other stuff in there.

I used to drink them all the time, but i'll only have one if i plan on being up real late. They are really terrible for you, well not once in awhile, but if taken regularly you'll definately have complications down the road. If you really need energy or just to stay awake, i'd suggest going out and getting some B vitamins, or foods/drinks with B vitamins, or maybe just some coffee or a soda.

that would be because it was temporarily made illegal in the U.S (if thats were u r) because its name was cocaine. Its coming back soon though, maybe its back already.

Heh, luckily I don't drink those. I only drink either Sobe Adrenaline Rush or Ol' Glory.

By the way, there is a place that sells cocaine (energy drink) near my house.

There is one kid in my school who literally would drink them all day, and they had no effect on him b/c his body got used to them. He thought he was the man cause he drank them. He's a complete loser/douche/fag/ass/whatever.

Hate to break it to ya, but rumour has it the Mountain Dew kills yer sperm. My friend actually called Mountain Dew (or at least the company that makes it) and asked about this. They said it's just a rumour, but you never know...

Well of course Mountain Dew will say its rumour. Its not exactly good PR if they say "Why yes its like cyanide to your little soldiers my dear boy!"

Didn't some kid in Northern Ireland die from a sudden heart attack when he drank six Red Bull's a few years ago? I can't remember if it was a myth or not, but I've heard the story a few times. I wouldn't be surprised if it were true, since when I went through four red bulls in the space of two hours in order to stay awake and finish a project on time once I ended up suffering terrible stomache cramps that felt like I was being stabbed from the inside. Yet I still drink a Red Bull each morning. When things taste good my IQ seems to drop and I ignore the health risks. :/

Don't be such a pussy. You won't get heart failure off a few Red Bulls a week.

They all remind me of the taste of liquor, so I don't like them.

Actually, it is a rumor. The stuff that is supposed to kill them is also in sprite and mellow yellow
Believe me, ive tested it myself....
Plus, the rumors different in a lot of places. Some kids tried to convince me that it shrinks your ****....

Yeah, you'll be fine. The only people who are at any risk are people drinking more than one a day for an extended period of time.
