Above the Noise: Are Energy Drinks Really that Bad?
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Above the Noise host Shirin Ghaffary weighs the potential health risks of drinking energy drinks and compares them to other sugary, caffeinated beverages. Energy drinks are a billion-dollar industry and their popularity keeps growing despite health concerns. We are warned they are particularly dangerous for children and teens -- and there have even been reports of deaths linked to energy drink consumption. In this video we take a closer look at the science to see if energy drinks are really as bad as the hype, and what it is about them that has doctors concerned. A student handout is provided. [4:06]
