1-2PM: Joel Torkelson, Health Promotion Coordinator-Wright County Public Health: Welcome to the World of a Guy Who Doesn’t Drink Energy Drinks
What was once a taboo product sold at few businesses is now a mainstream and powerful industry with energy drinks available everywhere. They claim many things, which are unproven. They can pose health concerns for some, but what most people remember about energy drinks are their catchy slogans, flashy clothing and antics displayed on all forms of media. In recent months, a variety of studies have been published with interesting information on Energy Drinks. All this and more will be discussed in this session on Energy Drinks.
