Pirate FM has learnt nearly 100 thousand people in Cornwall who are sipping high-calorie energy drinks, shouldn not be.

New research says 95 thousand have them while sat at their desks.

That is even though experts only recommend them for people who are doing lots of exercise.

Natasha from Kehelland near Camborne admits she is worried it could affect her health: "I probably have two cans of high caffeine or high calorie drinks, two cups of coffee, and a bottle of water. I'll be sat at my desk, you know, doing my admin work and my emails. I feel that it keeps me mentally sustained, and gives me energy and keeps me focussed.

"We do have one lady in the office who tells me that I'm going to get stomach ulcers and it's rotting my insides, so sometimes it does concern me. My dad does tell that, you know, it can be long term damage to you, and also my teeth; I don't want to end up toothless".
