Energy Drinks

Cans of energy drinks are displayed in a store in San Diego, California 10 November 2006. The kick from caffeine has a growing number of consumers jumping into energy drinks-soft drinks spiked with nutritional aids and stimulants despite warnings from health professionals. The drinks are often aimed at the youth market with edgy names like Rockstar and Full Throttle, and the provocatively named Cocaine Energy Drink, which despite its name contains no illegal ingredients. The typical energy drink sells for two dollars or more per can or bottle, well above the average price of traditional soft drinks. (credit: EARL S.CRYER/AFP/Getty Images)
