One couple apparently learned the hard way when the husband was left with a hole in his skull and suffered a brain haemorrhage after what doctors said was due to excessive energy drink consumption. As per the NIH, the number of energy drink related emergency rooms visited doubled between 2007 and 2011, especially people over the age of 40. Energy drinks can be dangerous because large amounts of caffeine may cause serious heart rhythm, blood flow and blood pressure problems.
