Scientists have named the main danger of the use of energy drinks
MOSCOW, may 1 — RIA Novosti. A group of researchers from the US found that energy is much more dangerous than most other caffeinated beverages, according to the American heart Association, citing a study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
Experts came to the conclusion that the energy increase the QT interval (also known as electrical systole of the heart) in an average of ten milliseconds during the two hours. “If this period of time, measured in milliseconds, is too short or long, the heart may start beating abnormally. The resulting arrhythmia can be life-threatening,” the scientists say.
The study authors came to these conclusions by monitoring a group of volunteers, urged cautious in consuming energy drinks.
