A new report of the nation's hospitals found a sharp increase in the number of emergency room visits triggered by energy drink consumption. The report, published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, is the most comprehensive look yet at the safety of energy drinks.
We'll speak to Garance Burke, investigative reporter for the Associated Press based in San Francisco.
CORRECTION: In the audio version of this story, we included a compliation intended to illustrate the content of energy drink commercials. We mistakenly included a clip for "Power Thirst." As at least one listener pointed out, Power Thirst is not a real product, and the audio clip we used was, in fact, part of a energy drink ad parody, produced by a YouTube user.
