The harmfulness of energy drinks has been talked about for a long time. The more you drink, the more pronounced the effect on your body. Dan Royals is a teacher who loves energy drinks. He drinks at least 6 of them every day. Frequent consumption of energy drinks has resulted in the destruction of his tongue.
The teacher warns against consuming energy drinks
Whereas in the past Dan Royals drank energy drinks daily, now he warns against consuming them. There is up to 13 teaspoons of sugar in a single can of drink. Regular consumption of these drinks literally ate his tongue. The combination of sugar and various chemicals caused his tongue to peel off and his volume to begin to shrink. His decay is now permanently disfigured.
What did he write on facebook?
‘Who drinks energy drinks? Addicted to them? You may want to think again.
‘Have a look at the second pic… That’s what that s *** does to your tongue, imagine what’s it like on your internals?
‘Up until recently when this started to occur I was drinking at least 5-6 a day (lack of energy teaching kids usually) and I brush daily, went to the doctor and boom! Found out it’s the chemicals in these drinks that are causing it… It literally eats away at your tongue.
‘So be wary guys.’
He added: ‘Just to make it clear, I actually do care for my oral health but this is purely from these drinks… I do smoke but has nothing to do with the eating away of my tongue.’
World Health Organization researchers said: ‘A study in the US showed that dental cavities can result from the acidic pH and high-sugar content of products such as energy drinks.
‘Another study showed that consumption of energy drinks can cause erosion and smear layer removal in the teeth, leading to cervical dentin hypersensitivity.’
Gradual destruction of the body
Consumption of energy drinks affects the whole organism. The blood vessels respond to regular drinking of these beverages by being less flexible and also more prone to cholesterol buildup. A critical combination for the lining of blood vessels is the combination of caffeine, taurine, sugar and other ingredients that are added to these drinks. Narrowing of blood vessels and higher blood pressure often also occur. Consumption of energy drinks should be completely avoided.
