    Fun fact: when we are talking about which is better coffee or energydrink, you got to hear "coffee has two times mire caffein than energydrink. While in the other hand when we are talking how bad energydrinks are to your body, you got to hear that energydrinks have two times more caffein than coffee.

    People, listen, neither is good but on the context of this video, you should get soda over energy drinks.

    This video is outdated and not accurate. There are a LOT of healthy energy drinks out there and energy drinks shouldn't get a bad name just because of a few bad brands. I encourage people to look into other energy drinks and a majority of them are healthier than soda. There isn't ANYTHING good in soda. How many soda's have B Vitamins and other healthy ingredients? This video lacks a lot of information.

    I hate how there is no scientific studies to back up what there saying. energy drinks when not active have little to no effect on my heart rate. being that im young healthy and decently good shape my heart rate is well under what is still good for my age. not to mention not everybody just downs a whole can of rockstar or monster. for me im good to sip on it and it wakes me up. a whole can easily last over a hour.

    Code red mt dew cans have almost twice the sugar of an 8.4 ounce red bull. This video is meaningless without specifics. Like many others, I preferred the taste of Red Bull over most pops and contrary to most people my age I've never had a single cup of coffee. If you're going to do an informative video to say which is worse, energy drinks or pop then you need to specify which energy drink and which pop you're using to run your experiments.

    caffiene just block atp receptors that tell you to sleep. caffiene does not wake you up it blocks the sleep signal from it's receptor.

    lady is full of crap. energy drinks don't contain 4-miel and they do contain vitamin B and many other vitamins. soda kills ,187,000 a year and our bodies know how to deal with caffeine but all the other crap in coke sorry she is WRONG

    1 Energy Drink a day Keeps the tiredness away!

    Who told you energy drinks taste like crap? The main reason everyone loves them is because they taste good and give you energy. Coffee tastes like shit if you ask me. I was hoping this video would outline the risks of regular consumption of energy drinks. I use to drink a lot of Rockstar and Monster at least one a day and I stopped for some years now but how bad will consuming one a day be? If I only consume 1 can (500ml) of Rockstar a day? Will I get a heart-attack or be at significant risk of one?

    actually I much prefer the taste of energy drinks.

    I dont drink them often but i prefer energy drink vs coke. energy drinks will have some vitamins but coke doesnt. the sugar is almost the same. but u drink 0.33l of energy drink only. Who can stop drinking cola after one glass? 🙂 If you keep a heatlhy lifestyle some soda or energy drink wont hurt you if u take them sometime

    This video is way too vague and full of stretched truth.

    Why don't they show a chart comparing the amount of sugar and caffeine in popular energy drinks. If they did, they'd realize that they don't have that much of either in them. But if they really want to stay awake, they could just go to sleep earlier.
