FLR 011: The Wows and the Woes of Energy Drinks (Part 2)

January 30, 2017

This program is a continuation of the 10th episode, which dealt with the ingredients found in 3 of the most popular energy drinks:  Monster Energy, Red Bull, and Rockstar.  For today's show, I address the benefits and detriments of energy drinks.  What do they do for us?  Are they harmful?  Should they only be sold as adult drinks?  Then towards the end of the show I examine two alternative forms of energy-enhancing drinks, namely energy drops and energy shots.
