Be Careful


We had a kid at the ski resort this part winter all jacked up on one of these energy drinks. When we (national Ski Patrol) got to him he had a pulse rate over 200 and panting like a dog. Wound up sending him to the hospital. At first we thought he was on some kind of drug. One min he was running around like a mad man the next he was almost unconsious on the floor. His eyes were dialated the size of dimes. Found out later from one of his buddies that he downed several cans of energy drink. Can't imagine the damage he did to his heart in that little episode.

I'm sorry to hear this Rusty. those darned energy drinks are trouble with a capital T. I've heard drinking one of those things is the equivalent to 6 cups of coffee. I think they should be banned.

Actually far from the truth. Most energy drinks have less caffeine than a cup of coffee. But is the combination of complex carbs and other non-regulated substances in them taken in all at once the provide the supposed energy boost.

Human heart can take it all in to a point. Liver is the major processing center for just about anything you take in. If you bombard it with 5-hour energy drinks every two hours, sloshed down with vodka derived shots? it will eventualy paint pickets signs and go on strike.
