International Business Times: Addictions specialist quoted on problems with energy drinks

Release Date: November 17, 2010


An article in the International Business Times reports a recent study has found that energy drinks are strongly associated with increased risks for heavy drinking and alcohol dependency, and quotes Kathleen Miller research scientist at the Research Institute on Addictions. "Caffeine does not antagonize or cancel out the impairment associated with drunkenness – it merely disguises the more obvious markers of that impairment, she said. Articles also appeared on Science Daily, PhyOrg and ZME Science. The news service Asian News International also distributed an article on the findings.
