Whatthefark: So how long until they reclassify caffeine as an addictive drug and start regulating it like tobacco?
rigamrts: It's not the caffeine that's the issue with energy drinks that's the issue.
H31N0US: Err...they're not good for anyone.
willfullyobscure: I have no problem recommending the safe, effective energy drinks like 5Hr Energy . . . . Especially for athletic youth, Its a great way to steer them away from gear and into responsible, empirical supplement use.The positive effects are easy to see (Niacin is a great booster for the budding weightifter or wrestler), and the negative effects are harmless but hella unpleasant. You're not likely to forget your first niacin flush or your first C shiats.But all that other sugary, caffeinated crap isn't any better for kids than Coca Cola. Definitely NOT part of eatin' clean.
