As someone who is very fond of having a White Monster in my hand at all times, I get a LOT of messages about the dangers of them and other 'Energy Drinks'.

In this episode, I answer some of the common questions I get asked about these types of drinks, their impact on health, body fat levels and and whether it’s safe to consume large amounts of caffeine.
