    • Actually there is a huge disparity between drinking energy drinks and coffee.

      Even with facts pointing to cigarettes causing cancer and people haven't slowed down one bit in smoking. The argument between coffee and energy drinks is different, it's a matter of semantics. When you say caffeine, you draw in coffee. But the real concern here for the FDA and CDC here is the energy blend, of which has been proven multiple times to be an unknown case of disclosure and transparency.

      Energy drink companies have not disclosed the levels of their proprietary energy blend and the impact this blend has on the traditional caffeine content. Caffeine on its own is probably 99% safe, however, add in the mixture of the energy blend and the impacts and velocity of caffeine content changes.

      So energy drinks vs coffee is a total non-argument. Coffee makers are not adding an "energy blend" into the coffee you buy at Starbucks.

      As an investor I'm sure you're looking at all the financial data and as a consumer wouldn't you want to know everything about what you're drinking?
