Heart Attacks Among Teens: Energy Drinks Are to be Blamed

Researchers have linked heart attacks in teens to consumption of energy drinks that are high in caffeine.

Most teenagers feel that they can get away with almost everything, especially when it comes to eating and drinking habits. However, there’s now good reason for you to be careful, especially if you’re a teenager and enjoy having energy drinks that are high in caffeine.

Researchers say that energy drinks can trigger sudden heart attacks in young. Even an erratic and fast heartbeat known as atrial fibrillation (AF), normally uncommon in children without structural heart disease, has been observed in a boy of 13 during a football training session after consuming energy drinks.

Previous research has shown energy drinks high in caffeine change the way the heart beats and could increase the risk of potentially fatal heart rhythm problems. Although caffeine is widely, serious adverse effects have been reported, especially when consumed in larger doses, said the researchers.

  1. Hello, I’m a sophomore in high school in the Kenton County Academies of Innovation and Technology Biomedical sciences academy, Our project is to see the effect of energy drinks on the human body over a set time, the time went from 0-20 minutes. We used Monster energy drinks as that is the most known energy drink, we used test subjects that were around the ages of fifteen and sixteen. For our experiment we used a spirometer and electrocardiogram which is also known as a (EKG), we took the measurements every ten minutes and waited 15 minutes to start to allow the energy drink to take effect. We only tested Monster energy drinks as they are the most popular within the students our age. We had to make a decision between Monster and Red bull, and in the end we tested Monster, we expected to see a elevated lift in the data when there was a energy drink in the human body. There was a elevation in the results of the spirometer while there wasn’t much change in the electrocardiogram. We originally didn’t plan on using an EKG but we figured we should as to make sure there would be some change in the data we would receive from the ten test subjects we used. I was wondering if you had research or advice for my project, id greatly appreciate any input as it is a requirement of my project to contact a professional and credit you in the acknowledgements of my projects poster.
