  Energy drinks: What are the health risks? Caffeine can cause major health conditions, including problems with heart and blood vessels, the National Institutes of Health has warned. One couple apparently learned that the hard way when the husband was left with a hole in his skull and suffered a brain hemorrhage after what doctors said was “excessive energy drink consumption,” his wife claimed.The number of energy drink-related emergency room visits doubled between 2007 and 2011, especially among people over the age of 40, according to the NIH.Read on for a look at the dangers of energy drinks.

When we have a headache, we're told that caffeine or an aspirin may help. What is the association between the two?

Similarly caffeine doesn’t contain aspirin .

What is the association between the two? Does one include the other? Well, not really, but sometimes they work together.

"Aspirin doesn't contain caffeine. Similarly caffeine doesn't contain aspirin. They are two specific chemical compounds, both different from each other," says Dr. Christopher Hollingsworth, general and endovascular surgeon, NYC Surgical Associates.

"I imagine this question probably arises due to certain formulations that contain both," Dr. Hollingsworth says. "Excedrin is a probably the most widely known example of a medication that can contain both." There are products similar to Excedrin that contain some aspirin and some caffeine as well, like Tylenol, which contains caffeine but no aspirin. Some of these formulations with several different drugs combined are very effective for headaches.

The FDA is strengthening its warnings about heart attack and stroke risks associated with common pain drugs

  The FDA is strengthening its warnings about heart attack and stroke risks associated with common pain drugs The use of prescription and over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen and naproxone is associated with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. The FDA updated its warnings for the category of drugs, NSAIDs, based on more evidence of the increased risk. Some of the most common painkillers available carry a warning: their use can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. That warning was strengthened by the FDA on Thursday, after more evidence connected those risks to a category of medication known as non-aspirin nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, also known as NSAIDs.

"Personally, I like to have complete control over the exact dosages and which drugs I am giving," Dr. Hollingsworth says. These formulations aren't ideal for that. Medications have side effects, and taking multiple medications at once has the potential to have multiple unwanted side effects at once. "Aspirin in particular is a blood thinner and has significant effects on your body's ability to form blood clots. You may want your blood to form blood clots if you are injured," Dr. Hollingsworth says.

So, as always, read labels and consult your doctor. The ingredients in your drugs and what you should be taking matters a lot.

Slideshow: FDA-approved additives you probably shouldn't eat (SheKnows

FDA-approved foods you probably shouldn't eat: <p>We've all learned the hard way over the past year or so that when it comes to the government, you can't really believe everything they say and do. Many elected officials have hidden (or not-so-hidden) agendas that clearly negatively influence their ability to put the safety of the American people first. But when it comes to government bodies regulating what companies are able to sell us as food, you'd hope we could expect said government bodies to keep us from consuming chemicals that aren't so much food as they are poison — right?</p><p>Sadly, in the case of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, our trust isn't 100 percent there. The FDA seems to be pushing through <span href=additives that seem questionable, to say the least, and Americans are eating and drinking ingredients they believe are safe — when there's evidence these things are harmful.

The FDA has the power to ban foods, so why are these iffy ones still approved?

Caffeinated Sparkling Water Is Here .
<p>*Immediately puts 5 cases in cart*</p>After working in several offices, I’ve found that 99 percent of people only drink two beverages during the workday: coffee and sparkling water. And since the world is filled with genius inventors, it was only a matter of time until someone put the two together. That’s right, folks, caffeinated sparkling water exists now.
