energy drinks and health

Downing just one-and-a-half large cans of energy drink is enough to narrow your blood vessels, scientists say.

Drinks filled with sugar and caffeine block vessels, which can then lead to a stroke or heart attack if the products are consumed regularly.

According to a new study, young, healthy men and women experienced notably diminished function soon after consuming a single regular 24 US oz can – equivalent to nearly three 250ml cans of Red Bull cans or one-and-a-half 500ml cans of Monster Energy.

This is a group of disorders such as diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity that trigger cardiovascular disease and other conditions affecting blood vessels.

The finding presented at an American Heart Association conference in Chicago was based on 44 non-smoking medical students in their 20s.

Flexibility of their blood vessels was measured using a technique called artery flow-mediated dilation (FMD).
Beforehand vessel dilation was on average 5.1% in diameter.
