<p>Bliss & Depperschmidt carried out research into the perceived physical, psychological and practical effects of energy drinks among student pilots in 2010. This article provides a meta-analysis done on the original results. Overall, the students agreed that energy drinks had some negative practical effects on flying but disagreed that they posed physical or psychological effects. The sample used comprised only student pilots from a particular location in the USA. If at all, findings may only be generalized to similar populations. This being said, the study does give direction for future research on the effects of energy drink consumption because it identifies what areas student pilots believe are affected by such consumption.
