What do energy drinks, aspirin, and multivitamins have in common? Book Excerpt of the Week

You wouldn’t eat 5 multivitamins or take 10 aspirin a day because that could make you sick. How frequently you consume an energy drink is just as important to your safety. There are many energy drinks* that are not bad for your health nor dangerous if consumed in moderation.

[*And then there are caffeinated supplements, including powder pre-workout supplements and liquid drinks like REDLINE that have so much caffeine  per serving they are dangerous/too caffeinated even when consumed as directed]

This Book Excerpt of the Week comes from PART ONE: ABCs of Caffeine Safety, C= Consumption Specifics.

Book Excerpt of the Week: Bartender Wisdom and the Wide-awake Drunk

Every Monday I share an excerpt from my Energy Drink Guide. This week’s excerpt is bartender wisdom from PART ONE: Are They Safe. This week’s excerpt is important because too many people underestimate the danger of combining alcohol and energy drinks. In fact I often tell people that the most dangerous thing about Red Bull is the alarming frequency at which people mix it with alcohol.

“Every good bartender also knows that giving a drunken person coffee just makes them a wide awake drunk. It doesn’t make them any less impaired.”
