A British teen, Dion Parratt, recently made a sobering admission about her energy drink consumption.
Drinking up to five of the drinks per day has left her needing to wear a heart monitor at all times.
Parratt also believes that her two miscarriages were caused by her unhealthy diet.
Many experts say that energy drinks are bad for you.
Their high levels of caffeine can lead to high blood pressure and rapid heart beat.
Mixing energy drinks with alcohol can lead to even more serious problems.
Bodybuilder Dean Wharmby, who recently died of cancer, blamed energy drinks for his illness.
Experts do say that in moderation the drinks are probably okay.
They recommend not consuming more than 16 ounces per day.
As for Parratt, she’s swearing them off completely, and she’s looking great as a result.
