Army Warns Troops to Lay Off Energy Drinks

Two energy drinks contain more than your daily recommended amount of sugar

Energy drinks are equally popular amongst US military personnel as they are with civilians, however the US Army has issued a new report asking their servicemen to stop drinking them in excess.

Although the Army’s warning is specific to troops currently serving, it is still apt for those of us who are not in the military, as these drinks many of us rely on to stay awake during the day are chalk full of caffeine and sugar.

Each energy drink typically contains 27 grams of sugar, which is actually 2 more grams than the daily recommended amount for women.

It's "chock full", not "chalk full." Where do the kids who write this stuff learn language, anyway?
