Energy Drinks and Nurses

Nurses are Energizer Bunnies.

That's a known fact.

Even when they are running on empty, they keep going and going.

But, what keeps them going?

Medicinenet.com recently posted an article called Energy Drinks: Healthy Choices for Energy Boost?

They stated that, "one cup (8 ounces) of strong coffee has about 125-150 milligrams of caffeine and a 12-ounce can of ordinary cola has 35-38 milligrams, an 8.3-ounce can of Cocaine energy drink contains 280 milligrams. In general, caffeine consumption should be limited to about 200-300 milligrams per day."

"There are healthier ways than energy drinks, the experts say. Among the energy-boosters they recommend are a healthy diet, physical activity, and a good night's sleep."

"Other energizing beverages include sports drinks, fruit juices, water, low-fat milk, and good, old- fashioned water. Being dehydrated can lead to fatigue."
