I think it’s pretty well known that energy drinks are not the best for you. Side effects of drinking too many energy drinks daily can range from anxiety/panic attacks to heart attacks and stroke. However, one nasty side effect that drinking too many energy drinks can cause is one that many people don’t realize. Your tongue can ‘eat itself’ away! Yup…pretty gross right?

A teacher, who goes by the name Dan Royals, took to Facebook after a visit to his doctor revealed it was most likely the chemicals in the energy drinks that had caused the damage to his tongue.

He wrote: “Who drinks energy drinks? Addicted to them? May wanna think again.

“Have a look at the 2nd pic ….. That’s what that shit does to your tongue, imagine what’s it like on your internals?

“Up until recently when this started to occur I was drinking at least 5-6 a day (lack of energy teaching kids usually) and I brush daily, went to the doctor and boom! Found out it’s the chemicals in these drinks that are causing it… It literally eats away at your tongue.”

Dan went on to say that although he smokes, this hasn’t contributed to his tongue’s condition.

So be wary guys. Just to make it clear, I actually do care for my oral health but this is purely from these drinks… I do smoke but has nothing to do with the eating away of my tongue.”

Each energy drink can have up to 16 spoonfuls of sugar! That’s crazy and so, so bad for you.

A study in the US showed that dental cavities can result from the acidic pH and high-sugar content of products such as energy drinks. This is also what causes one’s tongue to look like it is being eaten away.

Another study showed that consumption of energy drinks can cause erosion and smear layer removal in the teeth, leading to cervical dentin hypersensitivity.

most people drink energy drinks to gain that extra energy boost. That boost comes from all the caffeine and sugar within the drinks. Once that boost wears off, people are ready for another drink…and so on. This is what contributes to the decay of teeth and tongues. And who knows what else on the inside of your body.

Take this lady for instance:

Having become ‘hooked’, smashing at least six cans of Monster a day, Vinnie Pyner’s teeth got so bad that it hurt to eat, and claimed he had struggled to find work as a result.

According to the NHS, other side effects and risks include caffeine overdose (which can lead to a number of symptoms, including palpitations, high blood pressure, nausea and vomiting, convulsions and, in some cases, even death), type 2 diabetes, miscarriages, stillbirths in pregnant women and use or dependence on other harmful substances.

Drink with caution, people.
