Experts Suggest Scrutiny of Energy Drinks

Energy drinks have been a reason of huge concern since long amongst health experts in the US. But, as per the findings of a latest report, the concerns have almost doubled since the last year.

It is being said that though, the industry of energy drinks is booming, the drinks are suspected for some harmful conditions. These have led to increased number of emergency room visits as well as some 18 deaths have been linked to the drinks.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration had carried out a survey, which has found that over 20,000 emergency room visits in 2011 involved energy drinks. The number was half, approximately, in the year
2007.

Nearly 150 injuries have also been associated with the consumption of the energy drinks. Therefore, it is being urged that the drinks should be examined thoroughly before these are allowed to be consumed by people. Approaches like capping the caffeine content in energy drinks adopted by other countries may be helpful, say experts.

"Health Canada may request a company to make changes to their product in order to receive an NPN (Natural Product Number). For changes that do not pose a risk to Canadians", affirmed Health Canada's spokesperson.
