People have already been forewarned for the possible risks when one consumes energy drinks. You can enjoy them if used in a moderate way, but that would not end well if used in large quantities.

If you are not convinced yet, you can just ask Dan Royals, a teacher who posted on his Facebook account about the horrendous image of the damage assembled on his tongue. His doctor put the blame to energy drinks. In his post-Dan wrote:

”Who drinks energy drinks? Addicted to them? May wanna think again. ”Have a look at the 2nd pic….That’s what it does to your tongue, imagine what’s it like on your internals?

”Up until recently when this started to occur I was drinking at least 5-6 a day (lack of energy teaching kids usually) and I brush daily, went to the doctor and boom! Found out it’s the chemicals in these drinks that are causing it….it literally eats away your tongue.”

”So beware guys. Just to make it clear, I actually do care for my oral health but this is purely from these drinks…I do smoke but has nothing to do with the eating away of my tongue.”

In fact, Dan is not the first to forewarn others of possible traps when misusing energy drinks.

World Health Organization researchers said to British newspaper Metro: “A study in the US showed that dental cavities can result from the acidic pH and high-sugar content of products such as energy drinks.” ”Another study showed that consumption of energy drinks can cause erosion and smear layer removal in the teeth, leading to cervical dentinhypersensitivity.”

Even if they don’t cause rotten teeth or a damaged tongue, the use of energy drinks in large amounts is extremely bad to your overall health. You would better seek medical care on how to improve the situation before it is too late if you feel like you already have a problem.

I would never imagine that energy drinks had such an effect! Share this article to help forewarn others.
