4 Your Health: Partying with a kick may be bad; Best locations for AEDs.

Posted: Updated:

A new warning for people who mix energy drinks with alcohol.

Data from 10 studies shows the combination increases the risk of falls, car accidents and other injuries compared to drinking alcohol alone. Experts say the caffeine in energy drinks masks the effects of alcohol and so people tend to drink even more than usual.

Best locations for AED's

A new study suggests coffee shops and ATM's may be the best places for public automated external defibrillators.

There has been an ongoing effort to put more AED's in communities so bystanders can help people in cardiac arrest.

To determine the ideal locations researchers ranked businesses and other public areas according to how many cardiac emergencies occurred nearby.
