Kathleen Miller, senior research scientist in UB's Research
Institute on Addictions, is quoted in an article in Prevention
magazine about healthy alternatives to energy drinks. "It's worth
keeping in mind that energy drinks also contain a variety of other
substances, including sugar or sweeteners, amino acids, vitamins
and an assortment of poorly researched herbal extracts," she said.
"There's relatively little research about how these herbal extracts
interact with each other or with caffeine."
