WORLD BOXING COUNCIL WARNS ON CONSUMPTION OF ENERGY DRINKS

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

The WBC through the Clean Boxing Program wishes to share a very important article published by Christopher Maynard with the hope it will shed some light and continue to educate our athletes regarding the dangers of consumption of a diversity of common products.

An article by Christopher Maynard claims that energy drinks are the cause of many sudden cardiac deaths in young people according to researchers.

Maynard reported that to many adolescents and young adults, energy drinks have become essential for getting through the day. But they carry a serious risk of sudden death, a new study finds.
An international research team, led by Dr. Fabian Sanchis-Gomar of Madrid, Spain, has concluded that energy drinks are the cause of many sudden cardiac deaths in young, healthy individuals.

The main concern is that these beverages can easily aggravate underlying heart issues. Because of their high amounts of caffeine and sugar, dangerous arrhythmias can easily develop in the hearts of young people who drink them.

Many people already balk at the high amounts of labeled caffeine on these drinks. The problem is that there are many additional sources of caffeine that are “masked” by the labeling.

Maynard said “Ingredients such as guarana, ginseng, and taurine have caffeine concentrations that are equal to, or higher than, caffeine found in coffee. Ingesting high doses of any of these substances can be very dangerous. Roughly 31% of adolescents from ages 12 to 19 consume energy drinks on a regular basis. An even higher number of people use alternatives to these beverages, such as gums or inhalers. The high amounts of caffeine in all of these products is causing serious harm, the study found.“

Of the 5,448 caffeine overdoses reported in the United States in 2007, 46% of them occurred in people under the age of 19. The question is, how can we halt this trend of overconsumption by young people?

Dr. Sanchis-Gomar and his team came up with several guidelines to keep young people from over-indulging. They caution that:
• One can (250 mL) of an energy drink per day is safe for most healthy adolescents.
• Energy drink consumption before or during sports practice should be avoided.
• Adolescents with clinically relevant underlying medical conditions should consult cardiologists before drinking energy drinks.
• Excessive energy drink consumption together with alcohol or other drugs, or both, may lead to adverse effects, including death.

In the study published in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology, Dr. Sanchis-Gomar goes on to say alerting physicians to the dangers of energy drinks is extremely important.

“It is important for physicians to understand the lack of regulation in caffeine content and other ingredients of these high-energy beverages,” he said.

Knowledge and awareness are key to providing safety for young people.
