I don’t think anyone thinks energy drinks are good for them. Packed with chemicals and sugar and all those bad things, so why on earth would you drink them, let alone more than 1 a day?
Dan Royals, a teacher, visited his doctor after noticing the skin on his tongue peeling off, and he’s taken to Facebook to share his experience and warn everyone. Dan was drinking 5-6 energy drinks a day!
Have a look at the picture Dan shared of his tongue after it had been ‘eaten away’.
In his Facebook post, Dan wrote: “Who drinks energy drinks? Addicted to them? May wanna think again.
“Have a look at the 2nd pic ….. That’s what that shit 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 at your tongue.”
WHO Researchers stated: “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 dentin hypersensitivity.”
Energy drinks are not just bad for your tongue, Have a look at Vinnie Pyner’s teeth
Vinnie was drinking around six cans of Monster a day, resulting in his teeth snapping off after becoming so decayed!
The NHS has listed other awful side effects of drinking too many energy drinks, including caffeine overdose (which can lead to a number of symptoms, including palpitations, high blood pressure, nausea and vomiting, convulsions and, in some cases, even death), type 2 diabetes, miscarriages, stillbirths in pregnant women and use or dependence on other harmful substances.
