Health risk of sports drinks

5th April 2012

A new study has claimed that millions of people are putting their health at risk by drinking sports drinks in the office.

The energy-boosting drinks are formulated for people doing high-impact exercise and a 500ml bottle contains around 150 calories. Most also contain high levels of caffeine. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) said the only people who should drink the isotonic drinks are “active individuals performing endurance exercise,” but a survey by The National Hydration Council found 11million adults in the UK have them at their desks.
