Search for an article to compare the energy drink effects to. I suggest starting with the links at the bottome of the energy drink article. Next, do a 3 column chart using Pages to show:
Column I Column II Column III
Most Important Info from Similarities/Differences MII from new article

or: Use Sketchbook on your iPad to create a Venn Diagram instead of the 3 column chart.
