If you've got a fizzy can of energy drink on standby every Monday morning, now is the time to kick the habit for good.
According to shocking new research, fizzy caffeine-packed energy drinks are literally forcing your heart to beat harder and faster, giving you actual heart ache.
A team in Germany discovered that heart muscles contract more forcefully after drinking an energy drink. Now, they've issued a warning to children, pregnant women and people with heart diseases to avoid them. Kinda' like the plague.
There's roughly three times more caffeine in an energy drink than in coffee or coca cola, but until this point scientists had no idea what they were doing to our bodies.
Now, they know the answer. Heart palpitations, rapid heart rate, high blood pressure, seizures and sudden death! WOW.
