Energy Drinks Taking Over
October 30, 2006
We all know what Red Bull is and that there are dozens of other kinds of energy drinks in the market. What we didnt know, at least I didnt know, is that during 2006 more than 500 new energy drinks have been introduced into the market worldwide. These drinks have become an international addiction, I am one of those people. But I am excused for using it, since I work at least 10 hours a day and need something to stay awake. But you got people who abuse it and drink 3 or 4 in a row gulping them in one go each to get some sort of buzz. In the U.S. alone, 7.6 million teenagers today drink energy drinks. When abused, it has a lot of negative consequences and are therefore being fought by nutritionists all over the world. For example, in France, Red Bull is considered illegal cos of the active ingredient tanaurine. {More}

    There's a website that takes your weight and lets you select your favorite energy drink, then calculates how many cans it would take to kill you.

    I have never drank any of these before, but I noticed that one of my friends did drink a lot of them back in Kuwait.
    I am addicted to Coca cola! I have just won my long fight against it, I even ordered fruit cocktail when I was back in Kuwait!

Now I'm in Kuwait.... been here since September 2005. Im working two jobs, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon, and a third project is on the way, which will be a great hit if it works out and i sleep max 5 hours a day. Its a chilled life, mostly work, and occasional outings. In Kuwait, I use my brain cells, then go to Lebanon and burn them:D But one fact remains unchanged and will always be.... I MISS LEBANON!!!!!
