Construction Sites Ban Energy Drinks


According to research by Griffith University 40 per cent of construction workers are consuming large quantities of energy drinks. Some sites have even banned the products because of the risks involved.

Researchers found that 69 per cent of construction workers are obese with many choosing to have an energy drink instead of a proper breakfast.

Rebecca Loudoun who was lead researcher on the study said that energy drinks were being downed at an “alarming rate” and that construction workers were’nt taking into consideration the health risks linked to excessive consumption.
