      Acute effects of energy drink on hemodynamic and electrophysiologic parameters in habitual and non-habitual caffeine consumers.
      ]. As Mattioli has mentioned, our article highlights that EDs consumption has a negative effect on hemodynamic parameters. However, as the habituation level increases, the impact of EDs on hemodynamic parameters tends to decrease. We agree with the professor's view that young people should be more informed about the harmful effects of energy drinks and cardiovascular prevention.
