Do energy drinks shorten your life?
Dilan Jay's answer:
Absolutely. Abso-freaking-lutely they shorten your life.
Now I'm only one man, and I'm very sensitive when it comes to caffeine and stuff like that, because I don't actually take stuff like that very often.
And I would say very, very obviously, if you're using energy drinks for your energy, then you're not using your natural body's energy. And if you're not using your natural body's energy, you're squeezing the natural body's energy artificially, which is what caffeine does, which will in turn shorten your life... at least a wee bit.
It's hard to say [how much]. It's going to take a lot of time to have that study be proven.
