Energy drinks. They’re bad

There is no doubt energy drinks give you energy a burst of energy that leaves you feeling invigorated and that makes you feel excited before a workout, an all-nighter, or even just for fun. Energy drinks promise an instantaneous boost of, well, energy, and they do just that. But is it really worth the health risks it comes with? In essence, energy drinks are fizzy drinks with a lot of caffeine and a lot of sugar.
Research shows that drinking them excessively can be dangerously harmful. In addition, children, or those with certain illnesses such as diabetes should never drink energy drinks. As with anything, enjoying one every now and then will probably do no harm, but below are some reasons why you should never make it a habit:
1. Too much caffeine can raise heart rate & blood pressure.

2. Energy drinks alter the normal heart rhythm.

3. Extensive consumption can lead to damaging blood vessels.

4. Adults aged 40 or more have an increased risk of going to the ER.

5. May lead to anxiety, sleep problems, digestive problems, & dehydration.

6. May cause metabolic and dental issues.
