• Ankle Injuries From Energy Drinks

      by Charles Poliquin Iron Man Magazine

      Q: Whatís this I hear about you saying that energy drinks can make law enforcement officers more susceptible to ankle injuries?

      A: Itís possible, and not just with the boys in blue. One of the common ingredients in those drinks has been associated with a deficiency in manganese, which is a mineral involved in the production and health of ligament tissue.
      Anyone who gulps down multiple energy drinks containing that additive risks compromising the integrity of the ankle joint upon impact. Better to stick with coffee or tea.

        And this would potentially affect all joints, right?
