Another way to avoid brain injury, for children and young adults is to avoid using Energy drinks. A recent study has linked the use of energy drinks such as Red Bull, NOS and others, to strokes. A stroke is brain injury caused by bleeding in the brain. The bleed can be caused by increased blood pressure caused by the use of energy drinks. The study was recently published in the medical Journal Pediatrics. There is no final consensus on the use of energy drinks and their safety. However, given that your brain is so vital to the quality of your life, we recommend that people err on the side of caution. Please take the doctor’s advice, prevent brain injury by avoiding energy drinks until their safety can be thoroughly reviewed. Heck, it saves you money and may protect the quality of your life.
