You can see that this "article" is skewed from the start. Although I've never tried an energy drink, some of the arguments that the author makes against them is blatantly anti-product. For example, to say caffeine hasn't been proven to increase performance in short-term sports, but it's a controlled substance is ridiculous. The reason it is a controlled substance is that it has been proven through many studies to increase performance on both a short term and medium term basis.
I agree that these drinks which are just caffeinated liquid sugar, that have almost no nutritional value, but if you are going to write an article on them you should show some journalistic integrity and don't let your personal bias show so obviously.
