    • The problems with "energy drinks" arise when too many are consumed or when they are mixed with alcohol.
    Health risks of energy drinks
    • Another problem with energy drinks is that unlike hot coffee or tea, which is sipped slowly, it is common for typical energy drink consumers to drink large amounts quickly.
    What happens when energy drinks are combined with alcohol?
    • The stimulant effects can mask how intoxicated you are and prevent you from realizing how much alcohol you have consumed.
    • The stimulant effect can give the person the impression they are not impaired
    • Dehydration can hinder your body's ability to metabolize alcohol and will increase the toxicity, and therefore the hangover, the next day.
    • It affects the liver directly, making the affected area unable to recover for ever.
  • 8.
    • Energy drinks should not be used while exercising as the combination of fluid loss from sweating and the diuretic quality of the caffeine can leave the user severely dehydrated. Besides, it may cause brain hemarrage because some of the components dilute the blood so that the heart beats much easily while the physical strain of training is much less.
