WASHINGTON, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being released by the American Beverage Association:

Contrary to what you might have heard, the vast majority of energy drinks consumed in the United States – including Monster, Red Bull, Rockstar, AMP, Full Throttle and NOS – have similar or lower levels of caffeine than home-brewed coffee which many Americans enjoy on a daily basis. And many contain about half the caffeine of a similarly-sized coffeehouse coffee.
