Also, I have a chem. project relating to caffeine. This is more or less a informal, clumsily made version of that project.
The above article asks the question whether or not energy drinks are dangerous.
Short answer: Yes.
Long answer: Maybe.
While I do believe that if anything in life tastes good, it's probably bad for you. Moderation is key, and like the article says:
"Well, the truth is that while you can call a product RockStar, a more accurate name for some of their drinks might be Fat Roadie. Because while massive doses of energy drinks are obviously dangerous, adding even a single can a day of some of them to your liquid intake could cause more than 29 pounds of weight gain in a year!"
|Drink Energy Drinks, and you can be like me!|
I don't really drink RockStar. I'm more of a Monster man, myself. But according to this other website:
It would take 55 and a half cans of Monster Energy to kill me. It would also take 55 and a half cans of Rockstar to kill me. On the other hand, since 7-Up contains no caffeine, I would not die by caffeine overdose. Sugar overdose, on the other hand....
"But Scholar! I drink coffee! Energy Drinks are for fat teenagers who think they're hardcore!!"
Well, then. I am most certainly not fat!
Yeah, coffee is good for you. And I mean homebrewed coffee, not your Triple Roasted Triple Sugar Peppermint Shot MegaDeth Caffeinica Starbucks brew. Again, I do emphasize: moderation is key. You don't need to cut back on anything, unless it is on a dangerous level.
You guys might have seen this poster flying around, but I'll post it anyway:
It's a poster of drinks in level of their amount of caffeine.
My essay kicked ass, I promise. This post.....eh.
Fun fact: While doing this project, various amounts of caffeine based products were consumed. Among them were:
Monster (I like it; been drinking it for a while)
Starbucks coffee (Meh. I'm from Seattle, guess I have to)
Redbull (A key ingredient in Jagerbombs. *cough*)
Black Coffee (OH GOD GET THIS TASTE OFF OF ME)
Water (Thanks you for that)
Needless to say, I got hyper, did some very loud stuff, crashed down, had a headache, and had a glorious nap.
Have a good day! I don't care what you drink, but drink it up!
