Man’s Hepatitis Linked to Excessive Energy Drink Consumption

A construction worker who was consuming huge amounts of energy drinks to make it through his work days ended up giving himself hepatitis C, a dangerous liver disease. The condition resolved when he stopped the drinks, but the situation highlights the dangers of drink stimulants, Global News reports.

I’ve been issuing cautions about these drinks for several years, mainly because aside from the term “energy” being misleading, the main ingredient in them, caffeine, is NOT something you want to overindulge in. Consuming large quantities of caffeine can have serious health consequences, especially in children and teens, including caffeine toxicity, stroke, anxiety, arrhythmia and, in some cases, death.

The drinks also often come loaded with a cocktail of vitamins, with one of the more common ones being vitamin B3 (niacin), which is associated with liver damage when consumed in large quantities. While I think coffee and tea, both of which contain caffeine, can add variety to your drink choices, I am absolutely against loading up on caffeine in any form.

If a lack of energy is compelling you to use energy drinks, please realize that this is likely a result of certain lifestyle choices, such as not enough healthy food, processed foods and sugar, and not enough exercise and sleep, plus an overload of stress. Increasing your energy levels, then, is as easy as remedying these factors.

You can do this by eating a healthy diet with limited sugar and fructose, increasing your intake of animal-based omega-3 fats, getting a healthy night’s sleep and through exercise. If you’re tired from emotional stress and anxiety, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) can help you tap your way to extra energy and peace.
