The Word on Energy Drinks

I'm not in the habit of

PDA

wait, PDA is Public Display of Affection. 
(I am a little shy.)

I mean, I'm not in the habit of...
PSA ..
a Public Service Announcement.

BUT, after what I saw on The Today Show...
I couldn't shy
away from addressing the monster issue surrounding...
energy drinks.





The mother
of Anais Fournier,
a 14 year-old from Maryland,
who died of cardiac arrest after drinking two Monster energy drinks in 24 hours
was on the Today Show last week
discussing the serious dangers of energy drinks. 
Her daughter did have a heart condition called "mitral valve prolapse",
but the condition is usually harmless and
as many as 1 in 100 to 200 people have a form of the condition.

Energy drinks are not regulated by the FDA,
because they are considered a dietary supplement and not a food.
2 Monster drinks are equal to 14 cans of Coca Cola. 
That much caffeine stimulant  can easily have you flying, jumping, and sky diving ...
just imagine what your heart is doing.

The caffeine rush found in energy drinks
has led to an increase rush
for hospital E.R's
where they have seen a dramatic spike in caffeine overdoses and toxicity.

anywhooooo....

These drinks are being marketed directly to our children with cool names like...
Monster,
Red Bull,
and Rockstar.

It would probably be safe to say
young people wouldn't be drinking them
if they had names like
Senior Stamina
or
Mature Mojo.

I commend Anais's mom for getting the word out about
the dangers surrounding the energy drinks
and pushing for a law to have the drinks regulated by the FDA.

So folks, that ends my PSA.

 
Actually my PSA goes hand-in-hand with my PDA..



My Public Service Announcement
is actually
my Public Display of Affection
for my own children....
and their friend's friends...friend's friends.

I feel it's vitally important to
spread the
word
about this eye opening issue
regarding the high levels of caffeine in energy drinks
and the serious dangers
they can pose.
Word.

Body builders use powders to mix with other food that helps them

But the condition is that the color of the sweater is relatively dull; otherwise, it will be too flashy.
Cable ties used in the food industry are characterised by their blue colour,
and they will also contain a metal additive meaning they can
easily be detected by metal detectors used in the food
industry. Needless to say, the entrepreneur must also require thorough hands on knowledge about visa regulations, immigration procedures, places
of tourist interests, political situations, accommodation and transportation trends, festivals, history and culture, and all other
aspects of the designations offered.

I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers
