Study Shows Energy Drink Health Risks

If you need the help of an energy drink to get you going, listen up.

According to a small study, consuming two energy drinks per day can raise blood pressure and heart rate levels in healthy adults.

Researchers at Wayne State University tested the effects of energy drinks on heart function and blood pressure in 15 young adults.

Researchers say while these increases didn't reach dangerous levels in healthy volunteers, the increases in blood pressure and heart rate could prove to be clinically significant in patients with heart disease or in those who excessively consume energy drinks.
