Popularity of energy drinks grows, despite risks
Despite warnings that energy drinks contain too much sugar and can lead to caffeine overdose, consumption of them continues to rise in Sweden, especially among young people, according to news agency TT.
Youth between the ages of 10 and 18 are the biggest consumers of energy drinks.
According to figures gathered at the request of Sweden's brewery industry, sales of energy drinks increased by nearly 15 percent in 2012, compared to the year prior.
People often mix them with alcohol, which can make drinking them riskier.
