The Dangers of Energy Drinks
The U.S. energy drink market is thriving, bringing in billions of dollars each year. As consumers down energy drinks, from a slight 2 oz. to a whopping 24 oz, the energy market continues to grow. But this spike in sales and consumption is accompanied by other disturbing leaps: emergency room visits related to energy drinks, and deaths.
A recent study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), found that consumption of just one highly caffeinated energy drink could cause an unsafe increase in blood pressure, and an increase in stress hormone levels just 30 minutes after consuming it. So, why are they still so popular?
Energy drink companies have taken a page out of Big Tobacco’s advertising book and are selling products that endanger lives by selling the idea that drinking them makes us “cool”. They use athletes as spokespeople to target our egos and sell us a lifestyle.
But, there’s nothing cool about the number of adverse effect claims reported to the FDA. Nothing cool about the amount of emergency visits related to energy drinks every year. And especially nothing cool about marketing these products to children and teens- the segment of the population most vulnerable to the health risks posed by these substances.
In 2014 Red Bull agreed to pay to consumers to make up for its false advertising claims (“Red Bull gives you wings!”). But because that $13 million was evenly distributed among anyone who’d ever had a can, each consumer received just $10.We think you are entitled to more than that. These companies are infamous for their false advertising, but our lawsuit is injury-based.
