Like anything else, it's the dose and not the substance.  In moderation it's unlikely to be a problem, it's when the stuff is consumed in large quantity that there's a problem.

BTW most if not all "energy drinks" get their "energy" from caffeine.  Before spending a bundle on energy drinks, you might look in the pharmacy for "NoDoz" or "Vivarin"---caffeine tablets.  Or get the generic variety nearby.  One dollar for a dozen tablets, heckuva lot cheaper than a single energy drink.  If you find that it does the same for you as energy drinks...  But remember:  in MODERATION.

some of my friends had 8 in one day
i have had 8 in a day didnt feel good skin went bleach white
Not good
Now that's too much
thats bs (bad sources)
two energy drinks cant kill you, the way people die from drinking energy drinks is by drinking extremely large amounts in a short time.

technically yes they are bad for you. but moderation is key as in anything you eat or drink. so so having 1 day might be bad but itll take alot longer for problems to occur then drinking 3 in a day
No, its better than water. The "limit" on the back is really a daily minimum intake.

Listen to Prfesser, he has it right on.

No more so than eating a cup or so of Karo syrup with a splash of battery acid to cut the sweetness ; )

It has been said that we are ruining ourselves to the useful affects of ginseng.
I'd rather use ginseng  than Viagra when I get older......IF,   I even need that sort of thing........lol

 well monsters are basically flavored corn syrup so you are basically drinking pure corn syrup well the worst case scenario (if you arent diabetic) is that you would get a stomach ache (like when you eat to much candy) now if you do have some metabolism prob or if you are diabetic then i suggest dont drink them at all
