Patients often have questions about the safety of coffee, caffeinated soft drinks and other drinks that contain caffeine. I typically tell them that there have been many studies of caffeine over decades, and to date, the vast majority indicate that there is no adverse effect on heart health with normal doses.

Energy drinks, on the other hand, are a problem and should be avoided. In this video, I explain why.
