Are energy drinks really healthier than soda?

That’s right, in every 16 ounce can of soda or energy drink, there are about 250 calories of sugar! Also, energy drinks have been found to be 11 times more corrosive to your teeth than soda! So, for the most part, stay away from both energy drinks and soda; neither is good!

Note: Many energy drinks have just a “sprinkling” of the nutrients they boast of containing. To play it safe, get your nutrients from your food and let your beverages do what they should– hydrate you and give you energy in the process. Hello, Water!!
