This week’s blog topic is about an unethical decision a company made, 5 Hour Energy is an energy drink or shot that clams to give you enough energy for 5 hours.  The energy drink is not healthy for you, with a total of 92 cases that have evolved from 5 Hour Energy and 13 cases were deaths.  I am not trying to talk you out of buying them I personally have never had one before so I do not know if it really works or not and do not know how it really makes you feel, but friends of mine who have drank one before have told me that they do work and others have told me that they do not work.  Weather or not the energy shot works is beside the point, point is energy drinks or shots are not good for you and could possibly kill you.  If you drink energy drinks or shots another reason you might want to reconsider digesting these bad drinks is because the company’s that own these products are just in it for the money in all reality and don’t care for your health.  In investigations that were done on 5 Hour Energy they said the product was intended for busy adults and to not mix with other drinks.  Then why do the commercials promoting and advertising 5 Hour Energy have some guy laying on a couch and his future self with a pretty female coming up to him saying if you drink 5 Hour Energy you will have a hot girl friend like this?  It is obviously is not for busy adults by the looks of that commercial, and no change to the product will be made, guaranteed.  The company’s reputation was not hurt at all by the 92 cases even thought I think they made a bad choice by keeping the product on the shelves if there not going to change the products to be less harmful. Thank you for reading.

    Energy drinks can also become addictive. I myself have seen a number of my friends become addicted to energy drinks. Many of them can’t even get their morning started until they have drunk one. Putting that much sugar and other bad ingredients in your system has to do extreme harm to your liver and kidneys. Also many people like myself can’t drink them because of a heart murmur that becomes worse when I drink a high sugar content drink.
