Energy drinks boost your risk of having a killer stroke

We all like to indulge in fizzy drinks, but experts have warned some popular beverages could increase your risk of a stroke.

A stroke is a serious medical condition whereby blood supply to the brain is cut off.

They are a medical emergency and if you think you are having a stroke then you need to seek help immediately.

Experts have said that there are ways you can prevent a stroke – like exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet, not smoking and sticking to drinking no more than 14 units of alcohol a week will help.

Keeping a healthy diet is key and there is one element of it that can be significant when it comes to strokes.

A study published in the European Society of Cardiology found that energy drinks – which have high levels of caffeine, can lead to a number of adverse conditions.

Rare but severe adverse events were also associated with these drinks, such as sudden or unexplained death, arrhythmia and heart attack (myocardial infarction).

Researchers have strongly advised against consumption these so-called ‘energy drinks’ during or after physical exercise.

“Patients rarely mention consumption of energy drinks to their doctors unless they are asked.

Doctors should warn patients with cardiac conditions about the potential dangers of these drinks and ask young people in particular whether they consume such drinks on a regular basis or through binge drinking.”
