It's Medical Monday

Today is Medical Monday at Aortic Hope.

Now that we have sprung forward, losing that extra hour of sleep may make you want an extra cup of regular coffee or an energy drink.

Well, consider how that caffeine may impact your body.

According to BreinFuel, the Problem with Energy Drinks is that "People of all ages consume energy drinks, and their popularity keeps growing. But, while intended to boost energy, concentration, and alertness, they don’t work better than other natural alternatives and come with some significant issues such as:

-Energy drinks can cause heart problems.

-Energy drink use has resulted in heart problems requiring emergency room visits.

-They can also increase blood pressure and decrease blood vessel function.

-In addition, over 20,000 emergency visits are associated with energy drinks in the US each year."
