Energy Drinks Could Lead to Alcoholism


A new study showed that people who consume energy drinks are more likely to become alcoholics than those who don't.

The research is available in Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research.

During the study, researchers asked 1,097 fourth-year students at a public university about the amount of alcohol and energy drinks they drank over the past 12 months.

They found that students, who drank more than one energy drink each week, were more predisposed to start drinking at an earlier age, drink more with each session and eventually developing alcohol dependence.

It is worth mentioning that energy drinks are highly caffeinated beverages that are very popular among young adults.
